Warrior-1, presented by The Score, will come back fighting on October 10th at the Robert Guertin Arena in Gatineau, Quebec.  W1: HIGH VOLTAGE will feature Carlos “The Ronin” Newton versus “Mr. International” Shonie Carter as the main event in a showdown for the W1 Welterweight Championship.



Newton returns to W1 after making his debut in W1: INCEPTION where he defeated Nabil “The Thrill” Khatib by TKO to become the first ever Canadian UFC Champion at Welterweight.  Carter has won his last three matches and is looking to add this championship to his collection.

The co-main event features a match-up for Bantamweight Champ between undefeated Remi “Bam Bam” Moravan and the former TKO Bantamweight Champion Adrian “The Bully” Wooley.

Fighting begins at 6 pm.  Fans should visit Ticketmaster for tickets or w1mma.com for more information.

Two Retirees, Two Amazing Careers

The MMA world received a blow to the gut this past week, as Mirko ‘Cro Cop’ Filipović and Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson announced they were hanging up their gloves.

Jackson, having recently been cast as B.A. Baracus in the new “A-Team” remake film, is looking for greener pastures, as well as a few more zeroes on his paycheck, on the big screen rather than in the ring.

“I’m hanging it up,” Jackson wrote in his blog. “I’ve been getting negative reviews from the dumba– fans that don’t pay my bills or put my kids though college.”

Jackson, who was known for his powerful body slams and power bombs, was 30-7 all-time and beat former UFC Light Heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell in 2007 for his own Light Heavyweight championship.

Filipović’s retirement came as no surprise; he told reporters on Saturday that his fight with up and coming UFC heavyweight Junior Dos Santos was probably his final professional MMA bout.

“Maybe the ones who have said that I’m done are right,”  he said.  “Obviously, I can’t break my mental block in the Octagon. I have twenty years of training like a spartan behind me. It has caught up with me, my body is broken down. I’ve been worn out.”

Filipović had a career that most fighters would envy; he had a left high kick that opponents shuddered to think about, he won the Pride 2006 Open Weight Grand Prix, and, with a 35-7 record, was a UFC regular beginning in 2007.

Filipović‘s manager, Zvonimir Lucic, released all Team Cro Cop members from their respective duties, ending an era spanning 15 years.

Both fighters will be missed, but hey, NFL QB Brett Favre retired 20 different times. I’m sure we haven’t seen the last of these guys.
