Medler and Nolan Make Their Marks At AFC 7 – Photo Gallery



05 Nov, 2011 — Victoria, British Columbia.  Derek Medler (7-0) came in to his fight at Armageddon Fighting Championship 7 against fellow welterweight prospect Brian Grimshaw (6-2) with a lot on the line.  More importantly even than keeping his undefeated record, was the opportunity to firmly establish himself as the top welterweight in BC.

Medler made the most of his chance, submitting Grimshaw with a guillotine choke just minutes into the fight.

“I knew his strength was on the ground, but that’s my strength too so I don’t like to take a back seat to anybody.” Medler said to MM-eh after the fight.

Medler also knew how important getting a win like this was for his career.

“Yeah, I could kind of sense that.  I was the main event, so that alone kind of tells me that I’m moving up — I knew it was a big fight.”

As for the quick finish, Medler admitted that he wasn’t exactly surprised.

HOLLETT READY TO SEND A MESSAGE AT BELLATOR



Halifax’s Roger ‘The Hulk’ Hollett (12-3) is coming into Saturday’s bout against John ‘Big’ Hawk (6-3) at Bellator Fighting Championships 57 in Rama, Ontario with a lot to prove.

After a career of fighting in only Canadian shows, the Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada native is on the cusp of International awareness, as a win this weekend will put him into the Bellator Light Heavyweight tournament, scheduled for sometime around late February or March next year.

The tournament will provide an opportunity for Hollett to mix it up with some quality opponents, and the winners purse of $100,000 wouldn’t be too bad either.

First things first though.  Hollett is eager to show off what he’s got against Hawk, an opponent who may not have his experience, but who is known to be as tough as nails.

“He’s a big guy and seems like he’s well rounded — a gamer.” Hollett told MM-eh, from his training camp at Jackson’s MMA, in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

 Tristar’s Bull

http://www.sherdog.com/news/articles/Tristars-Bull-37895



Once upon a time, it used to be enough for a fighter to say he was in the 
Ultimate Fighting Championship. However, these days -- with the UFC needing enough fighters to fill dozens of fight cards every year, as well as seeking out regional competitors to bolster its cards in new venues -- more young men than ever are getting the call of their dreams. 

Now, just being in the UFC is not enough. One has to make his mark and stand out from the crowd. In two Octagon appearances, Montreal’s John Makdessi has done so. 

He wowed his hometown crowd at UFC 124 a year ago when he used an arsenal of seldom-seen kicks to thoroughly confuse Pat Audinwood en route to a unanimous decision. Not often have fans witnessed a man deliver a precision axe kick to the head of an opponent who stands four inches taller. Then, at UFC 129 in Toronto in April, Makdessi mesmerized fans who went into the event expecting to see the “tae kwon do guy” and his crazy kicks. Although Makdessi threw some kicks, his hands won him the fight against Kyle Watson, specifically the spinning back fist that scored the knockout. 

Two fights into his UFC career, the unbeaten Makdessi has become a fighter fans want to see, and they will get a chance at UFC 140 on Saturday, when he faces Dennis Hallman at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. Quiet intensity involving anything MMA-related has become one of his calling cards. 

“I like to keep it inside. I don’t show how I’m feeling too much. I just want to make sure that everything is good: my weight, how my body feels. After the fight, I can tell you how I feel,” Makdessi tells Sherdog.com, with a burst of laughter.

http://mm-eh.ca/2011/12/08/canadian-trainer-hovig-tchaderian-new-face-of-the-ufc/



MM-eh has learned that Torontonian Hovig Tchaderian has been cast by the UFC to be in their new Pay-Per-View opening sequence to be used starting in 2012.  It will replace the Gladiator sequence that has been used for the better part of a decade.
 
According to the owner of Toronto’s Revolution MMAJoel Gerson, when he received a phone call from a Los Angeles based casting agent looking for someone to play an MMA fighter in a dream sequence, Tchaderian was the first person to enter his mind.
 
A recent photo was sent, and within days Tchaderian was given the role.
 
The 28-year-old Tchaderian has been a kickboxing instructor at Revolution for years, and on Saturday night he will be filming inside the Air Canada Centre amidst the clamor of UFC 140.
 
Part of the filming will include Tchaderian sitting down getting his hands wrapped, and then presumably he will be walking past the crown and into the Octagon.

BOCEK: KILL OR BE KILLED AT UFC 140



When he was a little boy, he knew that he wanted to fight in theUltimate Fighting Championship, but unlike many boys who merely dream, he came up with a plan that he knew would work.

Step 1 – Get a black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

Step 2 – Fight in the UFC.

To many children this would have just been a flight of fancy, but for Woodbridge, Ontario’s Mark Bocek (9-4), it became a reality.

First he became the first ever Canadian to be awarded his black belt in BJJ, and then after briefly becoming UFC co-owners Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta’s BJJ coach, he fought in the UFC.  Easy as pie.

RORY MACDONALD VS. CHE MILLS RUMOURED FOR UFC 145 IN MONTREAL



Several sources are reporting that Kelowna, British Columbia native Rory Macdonald (12-1) will be fighting British fighter Che Mills (14-4) at UFC 145 in Montreal on March 24, although the Ultimate Fighting Championship has yet to announce the event.

Macdonald had been scheduled to face Brian Ebersole this past weekend at UFC 140 in Toronto, but an injury forced him to withdraw in early November.

This match-up is somewhat puzzling, considering that after several high profile wins Macdonald had looked to be on the fast track to the top of the UFC welterweight division.  Mills is a good fighter who has gone 2-0 since joining the UFC, but doesn’t have the name recognition that most had expected for Macdonald’s next opponent.

GSP Surgery Update



UFC Welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre has undergone reconstruction surgery for the ACL injury that forced him to withdraw earlieer this month from his planned meeting with Nick Diaz at UFC 143 on Feb. 4.

St.Pierre posted the follwing comment and photo on Facebook today.  Photo used by MM-eh with permission from his management.

“Good news! The surgery (ACL patellar tendon autograft reconstruction) was a total success! Dr. Neal ElAttrache, who performed the operation, said it could not have gone better. Ligament is super strong. Thank you for all the messages of support- gave me a lift!”

Doctor ElAttrache is very well known amongst elite sports circles and is the current team Physician for the LA Dodgers, the Orthopaedic Consultant to the Anaheim Mighty Ducks, the LA Kings, and the LA Lakers.  He also performed the surgery to reconstruct New England Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady’s knee in 2008.

St.Pierre is expected to be sidelined for approximately 10 months, and in the mean time Carlos Condit has stepped in to replace him and will be facing Diaz for the interim title.

CANADA’S GAGNON ADDED TO UFC ON FOX 2



Ringside MMA’s reigning featherweight champion Michel “Mitch” Gagnon has been tasked to replace the injured Eddie Wineland at UFC on Fox 2, where he will make his promotional debut as a bantamweight against recent ‘The Ultimate Fighter 14′ alum Johnny Bedford at Chicago’s United Center on January 28.

Training as part of Team Shredder in Sudbury, Ontario, the 8-1 Gagnon has signed a 5-fight contract and joins fellow Canadians Ivan Menjivar, Roland Delorme, Yves Jabouin, and Nick Denis on the UFC’s bantamweight roster.

The explosive Gagnon has earned all of his eight wins via submission, with seven of them coming in the first round.  His sole loss — a unanimous decision to Will Romero early in 2009, was also the only time that he has gone the distance.

 

The 18-9-1 Bedford is fresh off of his first UFC win when he defeated Louis Gaudinot at The Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale on December 03.

UFC on Fox 2 will be headlined by former light heavyweight champ Rashad Evans vs. Phil Davis, with the winner possibly earning a title shot against champion Jon Jones in 2012.

MM-eh First Annual Canadian New Year's Resolutions

By Andy Cotterill (andy@mm-eh.ca)

Every year on January 1st, millions of people around the world make resolutions for things that they'd like to improve on for that new year, and Canadian fighters are no different.  I did this column for Sherdog in 2009 and it turned out to be extremely popular, so I thought that I'd continue the tradition here at MM-eh.

To read the predictions from 2009 and see if you recognize any familiar names, jump to the Sherdog article HERE.

Patrick Côté - Staying out of jail!  Hahahahaha I'm kidding...having success in everything I do.

Chris Myra - My New Years Resolution is to finish my gym expansions and drop to the Flyweight division making my tentative debut in April.

John Makdessi - My Resolution is to be the best I can be and to learn from my mistakes and to listen to my instincts!

CANADIANS ALEXIS DAVIS VS. SARAH KAUFMAN FOR STRIKEFORCE NO. 1 CONTENDER



 

This past week has seen almost unprecedented exposure for women’s mixed martial arts.  First came the somewhat controversial announcement that with only four fights under her belt, brash newcomer Ronda Rousey would be getting a title shot against Strikeforce 135-pound champ Miesha Tate.  Next came former Strikeforce champ Sarah Kaufman voicing her displeasure about that pairing, and then it was revealed that 145-pound champ Cris ‘Cyborg’ Santos had tested positive for anabolic steroids and was stripped of her belt and suspended for one year.

If that weren’t enough, it has now been announced that Alexis Davis (11-4) would be the one fighting fellow Canadian Kaufman (14-1) on March 3, and the winner will be the No. 1 contender for the winner of the Tate/Rousey fight.

Davis told MM-eh that she’s eager to avenge her first ever fight — a loss that she sustained to Kaufman back in 2007.

“It’s a long time coming.” She said.  ”It’s always been in the back of my mind.  You’re never really ready for your first fight, and I think I’ve come so far since then…I’m excited.”

TUCKER PROMOTED TO MAIN EVENT AGAINST HENRY AT ECC 13


With Jesse Gross pulled as Jeremy Henry’s opponent forExtreme Cage Combat 13 due to a 60 day medical suspension he received following his December loss to Daron Cruickshank, ECC has shuffled their card and promoted Gavin Tucker to the main event.

Henry (5-3) is riding a nice 3-fight win streak, and Tucker (4-0) is undefeated, so both men have a lot to fight for.  The pair are also cross-town rivals, with Henry training at FitPlus MMA (Home to the UFC’s T.J. Grant), and Tucker training at Titans MMA (Home to Bellator’s Roger Hollett).

 

ECC has also pulled the planned bout between Aaron Myers and Liam Campbell, so the event will likely remain with seven fights.

 MIKE KENT RETURNS AT ECC 13


Surprising news today that Halifax native Mike Kent will be returning to an MMA cage a few months after multiple concussions left him doubting whether his career would be able to continue.

The undefeated Kent (7-0) will appear versus Chester Post (6-21-1) in the main event of Extreme Cage Combat 13, set for Casino Nova Scotia in Halifax on January 27.

For a full account of Kent’s previous medical issue read MM-eh’s report HERE.

Kent told MM-eh today that his Neurologist has told him that his recent Cat Scans and MRIs are no different from anyone else’s, and that he’s in perfect condition.

“I built up training week by week,” A happy Kent said.  ”and now I’m doing hard training sessions twice a day and they’re fine.  I feel perfect with no ill effects at all.”

He added that he is very relieved to be able to get back to MMA.

“It’s exciting to know that I’ll be able to keep competing in something that I love.”

This news comes just one day after MM-eh revealed that Kent’s Team Titans teammate Gavin Tucker was promoted from the undercard to replace the injured Jesse Gross against Jeremy Henry.

Opponents have been acquired for Mike Malott, Coel Peach, and Aaron Myers, but will not be revealed until contracts have been signed.

CARVALHO WANTS TO PUT AWAY ARANTES AT UFC 142



Canadian mixed martial arts fans will get a real treat this weekend, as they have the chance to see one of their longest competing countrymen ply his trade in the Ultimate Fighting Championship for the first time.
 
Antonio ‘Pato’ Carvalho (13-4) may have been fighting for a decade, but a move to Japan a few years ago while the sport was starting to explode in North America meant that most new fans weren’t able to easily watch him fight.
 
That will change this weekend though, as the 32-year-old featherweight from Ajax, Ontario will make his UFC debut against Felipe Arantes (13-4) at UFC 142 - Aldo vs. Mendes in the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
 
This will be Carvalho’s fourth fight since returning to North America, and he’ll look to carry on the nice win-streak that he started with wins over Eddie Fyvie, Juan Barrantes, and most recently UFC vet Douglas Evans at the inaugural Score Fighting Series last summer.  He had actually been scheduled to make his UFC debut at UFC 134, but torn anterior and lateral collateral ligaments as well as a ruptured hamstring forced him to withdraw from his planned match up with Yuri Alcantara, who was coincidentally then paired with, and beat Carvalho’s opponent for this weekend.
 
Carvalho told MM-eh that life as a fighter in Canada is much easier than while being a foreigner in Japan.  While in Japan he spent three quarters of his day by himself, barely speaking the language with practically no food, very little money, and just trying his best to get fights.
 
“Obviously I had friends out there who helped me as best as they could, but there’s only so much they could do.  That place isn’t designed for me to stay there for very long, or foreigners in general — especially the way I was trying to live.”
 
Things are much better for him back in Canada, where Carvalho had as much assistance as he needed at Bruckmann Martial Arts in Oshawa.
 
“I’ve got no complaints.  This has been a great camp and I just sat back and didn’t have to think about it.  Every time I walk in the gym everything was already taken care of.  Justin Bruckmann and Bill Boland were incredible, and I had a lot of people come out and help me.  Not just from my own team but from other teams as well — guys in the past that I’ve competed against in jiu jitsu, and I was out at Grant’s MMA as well.  Trained a lot with them and Sean Pierson is there as well and Sean and I go way back.”
 
Carvalho says that the only downside to actually having a team help him prepare for a big fight is the possibility of letting them down.
 
“I really want to go out there and show everyone what I’ve got and that all the help is definitely working.  I certainly didn’t want to disappoint anyone, but at the same time they just want me to go out there and have fun and do my thing and hope for the best.”
 
The surname Carvalho is Portuguese and he speaks the language fluently, so he hopes that will confuse the historically vocal Brazilian fans enough so that they don’t treat him too poorly.
 
“I know that Brazilian crowds are pretty rowdy and can get kind of crazy, and the fact that I do understand what they’re saying probably won’t help matters, but I’ve already mentally told myself that no matter what I do they’re just not going to like me.  I might fool them a little bit when they hear my name, but when they hear I’m from Canada they might start asking questions.”
 
Carvalho knows that as a UFC newcomer he has to do what it takes to secure a place on their roster.
 
“I think I’m kind of an old dog compared to some of the guys.  There are some guys that are getting older but have been there for a long time so they have a name.  I’m sort of the opposite.  I’m coming in a little bit older so I certainly have to prove myself to them to warrant them wanting to keep me on board, so I’d better perform.”
 
But Carvalho is only one half of the equation, and Arantes has to hold up his end as well.
 
“I feel that if there’s something that I’m better than Arantes at I’m going to try and exploit it and beat him in that way.  I’ve always been like that and I don’t think it’s ever going to change.  Hopefully it creates an exciting fight for the fans, sometimes it doesn’t always pan out that way necessarily.”
 
He finished by saying that the only way he’ll fight into Arantes’ strengths is if he fails miserably to implement his game plan.
 
“I like to think that after all of this training I’ll have the ability to close the show and put him away.  I’m ready to go and I just have to go out there and fight.”
 
Want to watch Antonio fight for free?  His fight will be the first of the evening, and will be streamed for free on the UFC’s Facebook site at 7:30 p.m. ET
 
Antonio Carvalho is sponsored by: Hayabusa, Headrush, and Body Life Nutrition.

JOHN MAKDESSI ADDED TO UFC 145 IN MONTREAL


The Ultimate Fighting Championship announced today that exciting Montreal lightweight John ‘The Bull’ Makdessi will return to the Octagon on March 24 at UFC 145 in his hometown of Montreal.

This will be the 9-1 Makdessi’s fourth UFC bout, having started off with impressive wins over Pat Audinwood and Kyle Watson.  Makdessi is coming off of his first career loss, a first round submission to Dennis Hallman at UFC 140 in December.

This will be the third time that he will be fighting in Canada, and this time he’s matched up against Anthony “The Assassin” Njokuani (14-6).  Both fighters have a dynamic stand-up style, so this should prove to be an exciting fight.

There are several other Canadians on this card alongside Makdessi, including Mark Bocek, Rory Macdonald, Mark Hominick, and Chris Clements.

CANADIAN UFC SALARIES FOR 2011


UFC Welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre tops the list of Canadian earners in the Ultimate Fighting Championship in 2011, according to a report at mma-manifesto.com.
 
St. Pierre ranks 18th out of 337  total fighters, earning $400,000 for his sole fight, a unanimous decision win over Jake Shields at UFC 129 in April.
 
Mark Hominick follows in second place at $151,000, although he had to fight three times to make it.  The rest of the Canadian salaries vary greatly, going as low as $4,000.
 
The average UFC fighter made over $91,000 in 2011, and 72 fighters (21%) made $10,000 or less. According to Statistics Canada, the average non-elderly male annual salary in 2009 (most recent statistic) was $33,500 CDN.
 
Fighters with some estimated purses are marked with a * in the database.  This data should still be considered very close to accurate, as most fighters’ purses remain rather steady from fight to fight (unless they ink a new contract in the meantime).
 
First number is the overall ranking amongst the 337 fighters who fought in the UFC in 2011.
 
18 Georges St-Pierre* $400,000
54 Mark Hominick* $151,000
77 Sam Stout $108,000
113 Jason MacDonald* $78,000
147 Mark Bocek* $45,000
156 Nick Ring* $40,000
164 Krzysztof Soszynski* $36,000
177 Rory MacDonald* $32,000
195 Yves Jabouin* $28,000
217 Ivan Menjivar* $20,000
223 Claude Patrick* $18,000

MM-EH EXCLUSIVE – JIMMO WITHDRAWS FROM UFC ON FX



MM-eh has learned that St. John, New Brunswick’s Ryan Jimmohas been forced to withdraw from his Ultimate Fighting Championship debut on January 20 due to a severe ankle injury.

A source close to the Edmonton-based fighter says that Jimmo hurt it several days ago while training.  He had hoped that a few days rest would heal it, but a visit to a Physiotherapist revealed that the injury was more severe than he had thought.  Jimmo was still unable to put any weight on it today.

Possessing a 16-fight win streak, the light-heavyweight Jimmo has long been thought to be one of Canada’s best fighters outside of the UFC.  His notable wins come over UFC veterans Wilson Gouveia and Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou, and next weekend he had been scheduled to meet Karlos Vemola at the first UFC event to be broadcast as part of their historic deal with Fox Sports.

GOODALL/ARSENAULT MARITIME TITLE FIGHT CANCELLED



MM-eh has learned that Richard Arsenault has sustained an injury and can no longer fight Halifax’s Ricky Goodall in the semi main-event of Elite 1 ‘Heavy Hitters,’ scheduled for January 28 at Casino New Brunswick in Moncton.

Arsenault says that he’s taking this injury very hard.

“ I have been battling a pinched nerve in my neck for the last month, and I’ve been seeing a Doctor and Chiropractor and was planning to fight even though I’m in a lot a pain. I was hoping it would be good enough by fight day. But during a sparring session last week I lost feeling in my left arm after taking a light punch and decided it was too much of a risk to continue with the fight until my neck is healed. I am hoping to resolve this issue and have another chance to fight Ricky in the near future.”

As for Goodall, he told MM-eh that he still hopes to fight that weekend, either with a new opponent at Elite 1, or at ECC 13 ‘Armageddon’ in Halifax on January 27.
