  • Print

TORONTO -- Two more Canadians have been added to the UFC 161 card in Winnipeg on June 15.

Lightweight Mitch (Danger Zone) Clarke of Saskatoon (9-2) has been matched with England's John (The One) Maguire (18-5). Maguire is a former welterweight who, like Clarke, has lost his last two UFC fights.

And light-heavyweight Ryan (Big Deal) Jimmo of Edmonton by way of Saint John, N.B., will face Croatian Igor Pokrajac. Jimmo (17-2) is coming off a loss to James Te Huna after making short work of Anthony Perosh.

The previously announced main event sees Renan Barao (32-1 with one no contest) defend his interim bantamweight title against Eddie Wineland (20-8-1).

Other bouts include light-heavyweights Mauricio (Shogun) Rua against Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and Rashad Evans versus Dan Henderson.

Other Canadians on the MTS Centre card include welterweight Sean Pierson and lightweight Sam (Hands of Stone) Stout.

Canadian AHLer jailed

SAN ANTONIO -- A Canadian hockey player ended up in a San Antonio jail earlier this week after allegedly breaking into a home while "heavily intoxicated" and making himself comfortable.

Hamilton's Scott Timmins, a forward with the AHL's San Antonio Rampage, was arrested early Monday morning and charged with criminal trespassing.

According to San Antonio police, a 43-year-old woman awoke in her home to find Timmins sitting on her couch.

The police report said Timmins, 23, was heavily intoxicated, smelled of alcohol and was unable to maintain his balance.

Police say the woman asked, "Who are you?" and Timmins allegedly replied "Who are you?"

Timmins also allegeldy told police he couldn't remember how he entered the residence but he did recall being out at a local bar with several teammates earlier in the night and had no intentions of harming anyone in the home.

Wallace a Dolphin

MIAMI -- A person with knowledge of the agreement says receiver Mike Wallace has agreed to a multiyear contract with the Miami Dolphins.

The person confirmed the agreement to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because no deal had been announced Tuesday night.

In four years with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Wallace caught 32 touchdown passes. He gives the Dolphins the speedy deep threat they lacked last season, when their wideouts totalled three touchdowns.

The Dolphins' top priority at the start of free agency was to upgrade at receiver and provide another target for Ryan Tannehill, a rookie last year.

Miami also reached a deal with inside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe, who helped the Baltimore Ravens win the Super Bowl last season.

Boldin to 49ers

SAN FRANCISCO -- The San Francisco 49ers landed another playmaking wide receiver to catch those deep passes from Colin Kaepernick.

San Francisco agreed Tuesday to acquire Anquan Boldin from the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens for a sixth-round draft pick.

The deal, announced by the team shortly after the start of the free agency period Tuesday, is pending a physical. Boldin expressed surprise at the trade and thanked the Ravens' supporters in a series of posts on Twitter.
