A couple of MMA pioneers stepped in the cage at W-1 “High Voltage” Saturday at the Robert Guertin Arena in Gatineau, Quebec. Carlos “The Ronin” Newton (15-13) took on “Mr. International” Shonie Carter (48-20-7) in the main event of what was supposed to be a five-round welterweight title fight.

Newton failed to make the 170-pound weight limit, so a catch weight was set and he forfeited a portion of his purse. Then he failed to make the catch weight limit and his pay was docked even further.

Although he got off to a slow start in the first round, Newton bounced back in the second and third rounds using striking and submission attempts. “The Ronin” walked away with a unanimous decision victory with scores of 29-28 from all three judges, making it his second win of the year in the Warrior-1 promotion.

Carter gave his thoughts on the fight and Newton after the bout,

“I came out to do my job to the best of my ability and I came up a little short this time. Carlos is a most worthy opponent — he should be in the hall of fame and I think that his time will come.”

The co-main event featured a featherweight title fight between Adrian Wooley (6-1) and previously undefeated Remi Morvan (6-1). Wooley used his exceptional wrestling to close the distance, put Morvan on his back, and control the action for the majority of the fight. The judges ruled it a unanimous victory making Wooley the new W-1 featherweight champ.

  1. Mitch Gagnon from Sudbury’s Shredders again totally dominates his opponent in the first round. Muy Thai expert and main instructor for OAMA out of Ottawa, Jeff Harrison was no match for Gagnon’s ground game. Gagnon put on a submission clinic last night, on his birthday, and showed Warrior-1 fans that he will be a force to reckon with in the featherweight division. The days of having easy opponents to build your career are over for OAMA and hopefully they can step it up and improve.

  2. Yes, I was in the house. Wooley is a strong compact fighter. He took Morvan to the ground at will and that will. He smartly avoided standing with Morvan for any lenght of time. Morvan was clearly a better striker with a better reach but had little answer to Wooley’s takedowns. Unfortunately, Wooley could not really capitalize on the takedowns basically happy with immobilizing his opponent. This brought significant dissatisfaction from the crowd and probably would result in being stood up at WEC. So, yes ready for WEC if he can be more inspired once he’s taken his opponent down. Just look at Mitch Gagnon, he takes them down and then he never stops putting pressure on them. People love action, be it on the ground with technical manoeuvres or standing with toe-to-toe battling. Anything else might be good for your record but does nothing for the fans. WEC, like UFC, try to sell a show. No show, no sales.

    Just my opinion….
