Mixed Martial Arts (UFC)
2005 – 2012
Steve “The Robot” Cantwell started his Professional Mixed Martial Arts career in 2005 at the age of 18. Success in the MMA world came quickly for Steve, becoming the World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) Light Heavyweight Champion in 2008. The WEC was purchased by the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) a few weeks after he won his belt, which kickstarted his UFC career. With injuries stacking up he retired from the UFC in 2012. Steve was familiar with cannabis because he preferred to medicate with it when he had injuries, rather than the pain pills prescribed by doctors. Having always enjoyed farming, Steve then took that same drive and passion from the ring and funneled it into his farm, growing and developing his unique grow process with the goal of growing the cleanest form of medical cannabis possible. In 2013 he gathered a team to help cultivate his dream in the cannabis industry. Steve is now the founder and co-owner of Green Life Productions LLC (GLP), a 100% Nevada backed cannabis brand founded by a group of tenacious business owners dedicated to their local communities. GLP is the Leader in Commercial No-Till Living Organic Soil Grown Cannabis. The philosophy at GLP is to listen to every plant we grow and pass along to our consumers the highest quality cannabis free of pesticides and contaminants.

GrowGeneration continued to spike on Monday after Jim Cramer interviewed CEO Darren Lampert on CNBC, describing its business model as the “most exciting” he’s seen in retail.
Following a five-day rally, GrowGeneration’s stock hit a peak of $22.30 on Wednesday, and commenced a small decline as excitement around its earnings wore off and some investors looked to take profits. On Friday, shares took a dive of more than 9% after Hindenburg Research published a report arguing the “Euphoric Retail Stock Has The Brightest Management Red Flags” that analysts have “ever seen,” saying downside surpasses 70%.
With CFL season scuttled, Bergman enjoys 'just being a dad'
The silver lining for Norfolk County native Shane Bergman in COVID-19 upsetting plans for the 2020 Canadian Football League season is the extra time he got to spend with his nine-month-old son, Asher.
The season, originally scheduled to begin in June, was officially cancelled this week.
The CFL had asked the federal government for a $30-million interest-free loan with the intention of creating a hub city (Winnipeg) to host games with no spectators. But the loan was turned down and the CFL put the brakes on plans for a six-game regular season, followed by playoffs and a Grey Cup.
“I had no idea what was going on with those talks between the CFL and the federal government,” said the offensive lineman for the Calgary Stampeders. “I didn’t know about the final decision but I thought it was going (to be cancelled) just because it took so long. It was inevitable.”
