Battlefield Fight LeagueBattlefield Fight League announced today that Matt Dwyer will put his 170 lbs. strap on the line against “Mr. International” Shonie Carter at BFL 26 which goes down December 7th from the Hard Rock Casino in Coquitlam, BC.

Dwyer, a member of Toshido MMA, has won three straight including victories over Ryan Chiappe and former Canadian Olympian Colin Daynes.

Carter, who trains out of the Iron Academy, is a six time UFC veteran with 50 professional wins under his belt. “Mr. International” has lived up to his moniker travelling north of the border numerous times in his career and holds victories over various Canadians including Allen Hope and  Jason MacDonald. Carter will look to return to the win column come December as he has dropped 2 straight and is only 2-8 in his last 10 outings.

    5-1 vs 50-29-7-1, I know Carter is only 2-8 in his last 10 but I’m wondering how the process works for a commission to approve a fight?

    Caret doesn’t exactly ‘phone it in’ but he’s also not there to run anyone over. Think of it as a very tough sparring match followed by a very interesting night of drinks and stories.

    Ah, I got Carter by sub late in the first round. But, if Dwyer pulls it off that would be huge for him….Good luck!
