The Sunday Morning Rumor Mill

If you’re living on the east-coast, it may be lunch time but for us left-coasters, it’s still morning. Last night I killed a centipede and then I realized how much MMA would change if everyone suddenly grew an extra arm. Moments later, an angel came down and gave me golden plates engraved with a religious chronicle of ancient American people in an unknown language. My bad, that’s actually the story of how Joseph Smith created the Church of the Latter Day Saints. Everything, including Mormonism, is unverifiable rumors much like our Sunday Morning Rumor Mill. Enjoy.

  • This is more of a story that I don’t feel like writing than a rumor. I contacted MFC regarding UFC’s plans to expand in Canada. Mark Pavelich told me ‘The MFC has no comment on this UFC matter’. The next day, MFC press released that the organization plans to beat UFC in being the first promotion to have an event in Ontario. They seem incredibly adamant about it.
  • Josh Thomson will not be fighting Katsunori Kikuno on June 26th but instead, will take another another Dream fighter: Tatsuya Kawajiri. Currently, Kawajiri is scheduled to fight at Dream 15 but this will probably be amended.
  • M-1 Global may be trying to protect another one of their assets in Cindy Dandois. Apparently Cindy wants to fight Cyborg but her management wants her to build her fight portfolio before taking on the Strikeforce champion.
  • UFC plans to open an office/headquarters in Toronto with former WWE’s Shane McMahon being involved in some capacity.
  • Despite Josh Thomson not fighting Kikuno, Katsunori will be on an upcoming Strikeforce card.
  • Fedor attended the Cannes Film Festival premiere of ‘The Fifth Execution’ over the weekend.
  • After winning his fourth MMA fight, The Green Power Ranger (Jason David Frank) has been approached by a few organizations as of last night.
  • Strikeforce is considering removing the ‘elbow ban’ from the organization.
  • Another promoter wants to go head-to-head with Dana White, this time it’s Impact FC’s promoter who was encouraged to organize MMA events because of the large numbers UFC 110 grabbed.
  • Rumor in Paulo Filho’s camp is that he will not back out of his two upcoming fights in Impact FC against Dennis Kang and Keith Johnson.
  • Some Strikeforce welterweights will participate in Sengoku’s upcoming welterweight tournament including Joe Riggs and Jesse Finney (Personally, I think this rumor will be debunked soon).
  • Moosin’s next show in November will feature Kimbo Slice, who has become MMA’s hottest free-agent.
  • Paul Buentello has been approached by Bellator for their upcoming heavyweight tournament.
