From the CP via the Winnipeg Free Press:
No stranger to fighting, Donald Brashear is looking to mixed martial arts.
A spokeswoman for promoter Ringside MMA says it has reached agreement with the former NHL enforcer to try his hand at cage-fighting.
“Despite Brashear’s lack of experience in MMA, he’s a very athletic guy, he’s in good shape, he’s gutsy, he’s learning pretty fast and showed an early interest and motivation,” the spokeswoman said. “Plus, he’s no stranger to fighting.
The 39-year-old Brashear still has to pass a medical and get a license to fight from Quebec authorities. Ringside says it expects to file the application when the government offices open Tuesday.
The plan is for Brashear to fight on the Ringside 11 card June 4 at the Quebec Coliseum.
