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.
