I was just wondering if anyone knows if Challenge MMA in Montreal is still happening? It's a week away and very hard to find any info about who is actually fighintg who. Seems sketchy and I'm wondering if it will get cancelled.

I have not heard much. A few sources have told me that there is little advertising in Montreal for the event.

No shit.I coulda spent the weekend spitting in people's coffee. Seriously, do they not want fans? Bosse is the Next Big Thing and I haven't heard shit. No FB heads up. They don't have a website. Nobody has come on to this site to hype the show. They are doing the fighters and the fans a disservice. If this show gets canceled ,  y'all are getting Double horks in your java next week…

So apparently this card is still on but there will be some changes to the card. The main event is still on but the rest of the card will be announced next week.

Seems like it on. Good people involved and they're working hard so I think it'll be good.

I heard Gauthier was injured and Jesse Gross was gonna step in against Lamarche.

 

Why the fuck would you not want to get that info out if it's true? Gross would be a draw…

Canceled. Shame on these guys. Total goddamn disgrace. Fighters should be able to recoup monies for work missed etc. Totally goddamn unacceptable, especially in a province like Quebec which has held successsful shows for years.

These guys were a sloppy joke from the get go. I would love to tell a couple of stories about fights they wanted to put on.

Sounds like less than 300 tickets sold. Zero advertising and no media attention.

Bosse is saying the commission would not license Emanuel Newton.

That may well be the case, but that doesn't explain zero media, no website, no press to sites like this etc. Sloppy and lazy. I know I've cracked on WRECK before and Elite 1 has taken some licks, but you can't argue those shows get the goddamn word out. Nobody i talked to could get info on this show from the get-go.

            Jesus, you're in a city that's already got 2 promotions that have brought in names.  You can't just sit back and wait for people to show.

I have no idea why they would not allow Newton. Sent an email to the commission to confirm.

I could get zero info out of Challenge.
