Joe Riggs vs. Matt Dwyer in Fight Night 9 main event
Riggs (48-18-1, 1NC) is coming off a TKO loss due to a leg injury at M-1 Challenge 93 against Artem Frolov in June. Prior to that blemish, “Diesel” was riding a 6-0-1 fight winning streak. The veteran earned the Z Promotions championship in 2017 with a striking submission victory against Shonie Carter.
Dwyer (11-4) is currently riding a three-fight winning streak. Two very decisive decision victories, and most recently earned a knockout over Dominique Steele at XXFC 18 in July. That victory earned the vacant XXFC middleweight championship. In the bout prior to that, Dwyer earned the BFL middleweight championship with a split decision victory over Chris Anderson.
Fight Night 9 goes down on January 25, 2019 from the Enmax Centre in Lethbridge, Alberta.
