Mark Pavelich, representing Canada to the fullest. I’m not even going to summarize everything this guy has said over the past year regarding MFC, his Canadian based MMA organization. He’s said a lot, probably has said too much. Dude even called me out. Today, Mark Pavelich press released a statement, complete with charming typos and grammatical errors regarding Chris Price, a former MFC fighter. Trust me, you want to read this one in its entirety.
Fighter quits, blows big opportunity at MFC 24
By MFC Staff
Chris Price has blown has his shot at making a name for himself in the MFC, and at the same time, likely torpedoed his entire career in mixed martial arts.
The light heavyweight was supposed to make his organizational debut at MFC 24: Heat XC but after several issues regarding his passport arose, he has now backed out of his fight against Nick Penner completely. In fact Price told one half of his management via text message that he was finished with fighting all together, apparently stating “I’m done. I was never that good in the first place.”
Price had initially run into passport problems in reference to substantial amounts of child support he owed to his wife. The pair had split up with his wife filing for child support, but then got back together thus erasing the need for support. Though that issue seemed bypassed for the time being, Price continued to waffle on getting his passport right up until allegedly contacting his agent and flushing his fight career.
“It’s embarrassing,” offered one source close to Price. “The kid hung everyone out to dry and then didn’t have the balls to call – he sent a text.”
If there ever was a time to double palm your face, tonight is the time. So was the time when you drunk texted your ex…this weekend. Oh, I know you. Yes I do. [Source]
