Shuman posted a 6-3 amateur record and closed out his amateur career by winning the Pinnacle FC featherweight title in March before deciding to turn pro. He did so at Pinnacle FC 17, but came up short against Keith Froelich as he was stopped via TKO in the second round. The Mat Factory product made his amateur debut in 2012, winning the NAAFS lightweight title that same year by defeating Nick Browne.
Dyess competes for just the second time out of his native West Virginia, which was his amateur debut in Kentucky in 2015. He posted a 4-1 amateur record before picking up a win over Justin Zeno in his pro debut in June 2017.
