CHICAGO, Ill. (February 18, 2010) – Bellator Fighting Championships put yet
another piece in place for its upcoming Season 2 featherweight tournament
today with the signing of 5-2 Shad Lierley, a former International Fight
League (IFL) standout and elite-level college wrestler.
The 29-year-old Lierley-who was a top college wrestler while earning his
bachelor’s degree in economics and political science at New York
University-is perhaps best-known for his legendary 2007 fight against
one-time IFL poster boy Chris Horodecki. Despite his wrestling background
(and the fact that he was fighting at 155 lbs.), Lierley stood toe-to-toe
with Horodecki for three full rounds, delivering one of the most dramatic
and action-packed fights in the IFL’s short history.
Three winners will be featured on FOX Sports Net, NBC, and Telemundo

CHICAGO, Ill. (January 29, 2010) – In the latest addition to its growing
Season 2 fighter roster, Bellator Fighting Championships announced today the
acquisition of middleweight and former WEC standout Eric Schambari.
Schambari, who boasts an 11-1 professional record, is in the midst of an
unlikely comeback from a career-threatening injury that forced him to sit
out all of 2008. He is a perfect 4-0 since his return.
“I watched Bellator last season and I just think it’s a great organization
with some really, really talented and exciting fighters,” the 31-year-old
Schambari said. “In this business, it’s all about finding the best possible
competition and Bellator has some of the best in the world.”
