Biggest MMA Prospect in Canada

As the new year dawns, the UFC is set to make its return to Toronto with UFC 297, promising to be an unforgettable Pay-Per-View event.

While the card is expected to feature an array of Canadian fighters, it’s the perfect time to shine a spotlight on top Canadian Flyweight prospect, Tony “Wildman” Laramie.

At just 24 years old, Laramie boasts an impressive 8-2 record and is riding a sensational 7-fight winning streak, including a foray into the world of boxing. To say that Laramie has been anything but dominant in his victories would be a gross understatement.

Laramie’s most recent conquest occurred at BTC 21: Fight Night Kitchener in August, where he dispatched his opponent, Daniel Nuñez (7-0) with a thunderous right-hand bomb that secured a lightning-fast KO/TKO victory in just 33 seconds.

And before that, it was Sergio Quintero who fell victim to a vicious ground-and-pound assault at PFC 16, succumbing just 4 minutes and 15 seconds into the first round.

But it’s not only through devastating knockouts that Laramie makes his mark; he is a true maestro inside the cage.

His match against the then-unbeaten Tyus White (4-0) at LFA 120 showcased a master class of striking that left fans and critics alike in awe where he easily secured a unanimous decision victory.

Knocking The Door Down

Hailing from MTC Windsor, Laramie is a well-rounded fighter, displaying both grit and mental toughness, having weathered some fierce battles in the early stages of his professional career.

However, as the victories continue to pile up, finding opponents willing to test their mettle against him on the regional circuit is becoming increasingly difficult.

With confidence at an all-time high, Laramie doesn’t hold back his frustration, as evidenced in his most recent post-fight interview. When asked about what his latest win means for his career, he boldly stated, “I should already be in the big shows but I’m not. You know all these people claiming to be the number one flyweight, they ain’t when I’m still walking, and I’m still fighting, I’m the number one flyweight.”

"I should already be in the big shows but I’m not. You know all these people claiming to be the number one flyweight, they ain’t when I’m still walking, and I’m still fighting, I’m the number one flyweight."

As for UFC 297, it’s set to be a night for the books. The headline bout is expected to feature the UFC Featherweight Champion Alexander Volkanovski taking on the #5 ranked Ilia Topuria.

Additionally, a constellation of Canadian stars is also expected to grace the card, including UFC veterans Gillian Robertson, Marc-Andre Barriault, Malcolm Gordon, and Mike Malott.

UFC 297 promises to be a night to remember, but keep a keen eye out for Tony “Wildman” Laramie.
