Matt Dwyer has signed with the UFC, according to his Toshido MMA coach David Lea.  Lea announced the signing on Facebook this evening,

HUGE TOSHIDO MMA NEWS!!!!! My little gym in Kelowna, BC, Canada first gave the UFC Rory MacDonald, then we gave the UFC Sarah Moras, and now…….We give the UFC Matt Dwyer!!!! Matt is officially the third Toshido MMA fighter to be signed to the UFC! I’m so proud of my team who sweat and bleed for eachother every day! As a team we can accomplish anything! War Toshido!

Dwyer (7-1) recently defeated DaMarques Johnson at Battlefield Fight League 30 via TKO in the second round (You can watch the fight HERE).  The win was his second consecutive over a former UFC fighter as he beat Shonie Carter at BFL 27.  The Kelowna fighter, who has fought solely for Battlefield Fight League in his pro career, will be entering the UFC on a five fight win streak.

No mention was made on the card or opponent, but Top MMA News will post the information once it is known.

Top MMA News attempted to contact Dwyer for the story, but was unable to reach him.

  5. With a population of less than 200,000 to work with, it is amazing that three Toshido MMA students have made the UFC.

    It really validates that David Lea is running a very strong MMA program in Kelowna, BC !

    I don’t get why Canada’s mma community has to be so adversarial, this site is infested by haters and tough guys who hide behind screen names.
