Notorious Hockey Enforcer Donald Brashear Signs One-Fight Deal With Ringside MMA


(See? He’s already more qualified than Herschel Walker.)

As first reported by MMADieHards, legendary hockey brawler Donald Brashear has signed a one-fight contract with the Canadian-based Ringside MMA promotion. No date or first opponent has been confirmed for his debut; Brashear had not applied for a fighting license as of Thursday, and Quebec’s sissy-ass gaming commission might put him under extra scrutiny because of an alleged assault incident that occurred at the end of a LNAH hockey game on March 25th. Brashear currently plays for the Rivière-du-Loup CIMT, whatever that is.

During his 1993-2010 stint as an enforcer in the NHL — during which he logged time for the Montreal Canadiens, Vancouver Canucks, Philadelphia Flyers, Washington Capitals, and New York Rangers — Brashear racked up 2,634 penalty minutes, the 15th-highest penalty total in the history of the NHL. He also managed to record 85 goals and 125 assists when he wasn’t punching dudes’ teeth out.

RingsideReport.net adds more…

Brashear is enthusiastic about the opportunity to become a mixed martial arts fighter and could start train at Nordik Fight Club in Quebec. [Ringside MMA President Eric Champoux] hopes that the crossover from NHL Goon to MMA fighter will appeal to Quebec fans, similar to WWE wrestler Brock Lesnar and Boxing Champion James Toney joining the UFC and of course former LNAH hockey goon turned Quebec MMA star Steve Bosse.

Ringside MMA’s last event was Cote vs. Starnes on April 9th in Montreal, where the Predator scored a unanimous decision over the Running Man. Their next event will be held in Quebec City on June 4th.

@coldbeer, let's not forget aggression. That'll get you KTFO in the mid to upper tiers of MMA but at the ground level, aggression wins fights.

I think Brashear's athleticism and explosiveness could be a deciding factor in his first MMA fight...........

He can wear his skates but he is not allowed to kick.

I thought black people didn't play hockey

Ok Seaman, that was damn funny.

Brashear is f-ing insane

As a Flyers fan I'll be rooting for Brashear, he was definately one of the better enforcers in Hockey when he played, and one of the few black players. Let's just hope they don't sign Marty McSorley and make hockey sticks legal weapons.

McSorley would have whooped his ass during his prime. Last great generation of goons doesnt include Brashear. McSorley, Probert, Domi, McCarty..... Last greats of an important position in hockey.

Marty McSorley - the guy who took a hockey stick to Brashear's head during a game years ago - said, remorsefully, in an interview after he was suspended, "Hockey doesn't need another black eye"


Now, say it quickly: Hockey doesn't need another black eye. Another black eye. Black eye.

Hockey's fucking brutal. Those Montreal Canadians can probably wipe out half of UFC's rostrum.

Riviere-du-loup is a small city in quebec, canada. This is 400 km away from Montreal. I'm currently in there to visit my mother.

The CIMT is the name of the "hockey" team...this hockey league should be called skate boxing or something. Brashear has beat down some dudes in the parking lot. He's also the best fighter and the best scorer of the team..

Loved Brashear as a goon for the Nucks, so wishin him the best in his MMA fight, but honestly who cares?
