Is Quebec fucking with MMA events again?

This isn’t a good sign for Montreal MMA:

Top MMA News learned this morning that XMMA 8 has been cancelled when the promotion called fighters scheduled on the card to break the news. Top MMA News then spoke with XMMA Matchmaker Joey Benoit and he confirmed the event was cancelled due to technical difficulties with the commission, but that they would be back for XMMA 9.

Top MMA News spoke with John Judd from the Quebec Athletic Commission and he confirmed there was a problem with the Organizer of the event but had no further comment on what prompted this or what the reason was for. One has to wonder what this means for XMMA’s future?

XMMA was going to be the replacement for the TKO org that helped make Montreal the fight capital of Canada. TKO closed last year with owner Stephan Patry trying and failing to start a new organization called Strikebox – remember that event with James Thompson that ended with a riot? So now Montreal might be stuck with no Stephan Patry and soon no XMMA.
