So he's gone with the International Combative Sports Association which is basically just a 'commission for hire'.  Thankfully the ABC has come in hard and said they won't consider the fights 'sanctioned'.  No major surprise to see Pat Reid flip flop on the issue but I wish he'd take a bigger more hardlined stance.

We knew about this for the past 2 months, but unfortunately it was all off the record.

Quite frankly, as long as proper medical personnel and trained officials are there and fighters get paid, I am not sure that I care.

I find it strange that no one ever says anything about Lethbridge's RITC allowing knees to the head on the ground but Lino or an Ontario native show happens and everyone is all over sanctioning.

Lethbridge doesn't hide what they are doing, and is fully accountable for their rules, and why they do it as they do.


I'm not a fan of it not being standard Unified Rules, but they've been running shows longer than anybody in Canada, and their track record is very solid.

Colosseo on the other hand is sneaky, and has no idea what they are doing.  What is the average length of one of their shows?  8 minutes?  They have a card with mostly lower level guys who have no business fighting, nevermind with Pride rules.


It's sad they are even getting any press with this garbage.  I dont' understand why they can't let us know where this event is going to take place.  Seriously how to do you have an entire fight card 3 months before the show, and can't tell us where it is?


That tells you how crappy this is

I predict the show doesn't happen, or if it does, it'll be normal rules.
