on

Chicago fighter and MMA legend Shonie “Mr. International” Carter will be fighting at the “W-1: HighVoltage” event on October 10th in Canada.

Shonie will be vying for the W-1 welterweight title against former UFC champion Carlos Newton, who will be fighting in his home country. Newton, the first ever Canadian UFC Welterweight Champion, is coming off a March KO win at W-1 Inception, where he beat Nabil Khatib for his first victory since 2006.

Shonie has won 3 straight fights and 5 of his last 6. He was very active in 2008, fighting 5 times. This year he has had just one bout, beating George Lockhart by decision in Utah’s Throwdown III in February. He fought at 185 in that fight, but will get to 170 against Newton.
