Dwyer to Defend BFL Title Against Shonie Carter
Battlefield 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. The current BFL Welterweight champion turned pro in 2011 and has a nasty finishing rate earning all five of his professional victories by way of TKO in the first round. This will be Dwyer’s second title defense.
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.
