Theodorou (17-3) hasn’t fought since December 2019. It was his first bout after departing from the UFC. The 32-year-old earned a TKO victory against Hernani Perpétuo at PFC 12. Theodorou was 8-3 under the UFC banner and parted ways with the promotion after a loss to Derek Brunson in mid-2019.
Dwyer (11-7) was released from the UFC in 2016 and went on a three-fight winning streak following his departure. The 31-year-old hit a skid in the road, as he’s currently on a three-fight losing streak. All three fights took place in 2019. Most recently, the Kelowna product lost a decision to Mikhail Ragozin at RCC 7 in December 2019.
Rise FC 6 will take place on March 13, 2021, from the Songhees Wellness Centre in Victoria, B.C. The event will air live and exclusively on the Imagine BC app.
