It’s Official! Matt Dwyer puts 170-pound title on line against UFC vet Shonie Carter on Dec 7 at BFL 26

Battlefield Fight League is proud to announce that it’s 170-pound welterweight king Matt Dwyer will put his title on the line against the crafty UFC veteran Shonie Carter.

The title bout will serve as the main-event of BFL 26, which takes place on Dec 7, 2013 at the new Hard Rock Casino in Coquitlam B.C.

BFL President Jay Golshani gave the scoop earlier today:

“BFL26 is an absolutely stacked card with 4 title fights.  Matt Dwyer vs. Shonie Carter BFL world welterweight title fight will headline and is a very interesting fight in the sense that fans will find out if the province’s most successful welterweight is ready to take on a true veteran of the sport with of 50 career wins”

Shonie Carter, no stranger to the game will return from nearly a year off of competition and will look to cause some ruckus in the Canadian circuit when he takes on the 5-1 B.C. native Matt Dwyer who last TKO’d his way to victory over Colin Daynes this past June.

BFL 26 will feature many of BFL’s top stars including Leo Xavier, Jeremy Kennedy, Chris Day and much more.
