‘Mr. International’ Shonie Carter possibly retires
It’s not the way that any fighter wants to go out – on a five fight-losing streak – but that’s where MMA veteran Shonie Carter found himself on Tuesday in Israel. Following a hard-fought three-round loss to Israeli fighter Jeremy Knafo at the inaugural Israeli Fighting Championships, Carter stepped in the cage and called it quits.
“You may all have just witnessed my retirement, but it has been my pleasure to give this world, all of me,” he stated with tears in his eyes.
Carter has held titles in several promotions fighting everywhere from Extreme Challenge to King of the Cage to the UFC, WEC, Pancrase, SuperBrawl, and too many more to name here.
