Unstoppable on May 6th

Gatineau, Quebec (Canada)
Wreck MMA is proud to announce details for Wreck MMA: Unstoppable on May 6th, 2011 at the Casino
Lac-Leamy in Gatineau, Quebec. Presented by The Score, the event will be headlined by Ottawa’s Craig
‘Farmer’ Brown who takes on one of the world's most popular fighters, ‘Mr. International’ Shonie Carter.
A veteran of practically every promotion in the world, Carter has made Canada a second home. With over 60
MMA bouts on his record, Carter is one of the world's most experienced fighters having won titles around the
globe. Brown is coming off an injury that forced him off the last Wreck event and he’s looking to re-establish
himself as one of the country’s top middleweights. A win against the veteran Carter may put Brown in a
position to fight for the middleweight title this September at the first event in Ottawa history.
In the co-main event, the Wreck Bantamweight Title will be on the line as John ‘The Haggis Basher’
Fraser steps up to face Saskatoon’s undefeated prospect Eric Wilson. Fraser is on a four fight win streak
and in his last fight he defeated the talented veteran Thierry Quenneville for a featherweight title. Wilson is
coming off a win against rising star Roland Delorme that cemented him as one of the nation’s top
bantamweights. A win against Fraser would put away any doubts whether Wilson is the real deal and firmly
establish himself among the elite.
In the second title bout of the night, Jesse ‘The Ghost’ Gross returns to Wreck to face veteran Brad
Cardinal for the Wreck Lightweight Title. This fight is Gross’ toughest challenge to date and will show
where Gross stands among Canada’s top prospects. Cardinal has been around long enough to not be
affected by the hype surrounding Gross and wants to leave Ottawa with some shiny new gold.
In a featured bout, Team Bushido's Nabil 'The Thrill' Khatib returns to Wreck as he faces one of the bad
boys of MMA, Markhaille 'Showtime' Wedderburn. Khatib's last fight in Wreck ended controversially and
Khatib is looking to leave no doubt with this one. Both fighters have shown a great deal of heart and expect
this one to be a real test of will with the victor being the one who refuses to break.
In a fight of the night candidate, Nathan 'Gunner' Gunn from Thunder Bay takes on Winnipeg's Lindsey
Hawkes in what is expected to be a slugfest. The winner may also have a title aspirations at the fall event in
the nation's capital.
Also scheduled to appear are OAMA standouts Stephane Bernadel, Jeff Harrison and Randy Turner
alongside talented Ottawa based fighters. On the card are Ronin MMA's Mustafa 'Mufasa' Khalil,
Bluewater Martial Arts' Mike Reilly, Tapout Gatineau's Pablo Santos and RAMA's Marc Lefebvre.
Children’s Foundation Canada has been dedicated to improving the quality of life for children with chronic
and life-threatening illnesses and life-altering injuries by providing entertainment, education and family
activities that help them cope with the pain, fear and isolation of prolonged illness. Tickets for this event are
seats available and this event will once again sell out!!
