I just got a call from the Edmonton Commission telling me I will
recive a 60 day suspension for the photo of my foot on Matt Kynsch, I
will liek to point out that IN NO WAY I DID THIS FOR FUN! I was stepping
off mount and raiseing my hands walking to my corner and when I steped
up and went to start walking I stepped onto him without even noticeing. 
The ref did point it out and I appologized right away to Matt and his
corner saying I felt bad, I came on here and pointed it out also.  I
guess they are getting messages asking about the photo and what is being
done so they are going suspend me because of it.  While I think it is
fair even though it was a mistake I dont see why they do not do this
type of thing in other cases…… They asked me to appologize to Matt by
email what I did and will do again I thought I would make this clear as
possible coming on here and saying it for the 30th time I did not do
this to show off in any way, people who know me know I am not like
this.   I do feel terrible for this make sure everyone know my side of
story.

 

BUT ON THIS NOTE! I don have a few problems with this as if they are
going reinforce this why do they not do this on other things as well
such as

-fighters who flip off the crowd and opponents in or after fights

-fighters who miss weight by drastic amounts should get suspended also

-fighters who flip out and smach the cage and throw chairs after losses…seen it

-fighters corners who start problems after fights also seen it

-fighters who spit at opponent….also have seen

-fighters who purposely spit out mouth guards

 

I can go on all day but thought I would let you guys know I am out until mid Jan-Feb

 

Thank you I am going get drunk now.

I do think this is a step in right direction for Edmonton commission.

Hey Mike, sorry this happened to you – as I mentioned previously you are a stand up guy and I don't believe for a minute that you meant to do this at all, like you said you were getting up from mount and it was just one of those things that transpired.

Although I am glad that you do see this as a step in the right direction for the Edmonton Commission, I do fully agree with you about other instances that warranted suspensions to other fighters but for whatever reason didn't result in one – hopefully this trend of enforcing the rules continues and isn't just a one off. I'm sure we could all come up with a pretty decent list of suspendable offenses that haven't seen one suspension over the past year (or more) – and I know the missing weight consistently would be near, if not at the top, of the list.

On a side note, did you have any fights lined up for Dec/Jan? Definitely love shooting your fights, and not that it needs to be said but you are one of the stand up fighters (and one I look forward to seeing in the ring)!

Seriously though, a picture is less than a second in time.  I hope they suspend based on the video.  I am surprised this was not dealt with at the show as all the judges, refs, and commission members must have seen this live.

Also, is the issue touching your opponent with the foot or just being unsportsmanlike?  If the UFC went to Edmonton would they suspend Tito for doing the grave digger, Lesnar for lassoing Herring, or Couture spanking Tito?

it was cause they thought it was unsportman live and they did not deal with it then cause I am guessing everyone missed it but teh ref cause he was right infront of me that is why I stepped over him.  I always see guys flip off fighters in cage and lesner flipping off crowd and guys pushing each other at weigh ins and after fights…..nothing then?

I was at the fights, I actually noticed Mike Davis stepping on Matt Knysh and celebrating victory and pointed it out to my friends.  Regardless of if it was on purpose or not, "live" it looked like it was done in an unsportsmanlike manner and disrespectfully.

I was there, however,  i didnt see it. I hope it wasnt done on purpose, if it was really done at all.  You Cant belive everything you see, just look at trent thorns head/face. That being said, i cant say too much, i have done something worse in almost every fight, What are you going to do about it!?

i agree with mike that alot of misconduct has gotten away with little to no notice. How come the photographers wernt shooting when bobby k had his chair throwing spaz out. and how can promoters can so easily sway the commision to reduce a medical suspension? dont we get those suspensions to prevent us from harm? How can terrible mismatched fights get passed, or fighters who miss wieght. Im not saying i  disagree just saying its a bad situation mike didnt mean to do it, but its taking this long for the Edmonton commision to act on anything.

I think he's referring to the pen mark picture! (Don't believe everything you see)

Gad dam! That's what you 'normally' look like?! Sorry bro, I didn't know.

 

As for you Mikey… your suspension hurts me more than it hurts you. I hope they let you back in real soon.
