Another Former UFC Star Looking To Transition To Pro Wrestling

Former UFC and WEC fighter Kamal Shalorus is the latest on the growing list of MMA fighters looking to make the transition from mixed-martial-arts to professional wrestling.

Shalorus (9-4-2) joins Phil Baroni, who is training with former WWE wrestlers, and Matthew Riddle, who is also training with former well-known pro wrestlers to try and make the transition.

Shalorus, who was a teenage national wrestling champion, has some factors working in his favor, such as having a good physique, something that is always a plus in the world of pro wrestling, however he has a lot of negatives, such as his age (37) and the fact that he’s a smaller guy, having fought most of his MMA career in the lightweight (155-pound) division.
