Olympic wrestler Shanon Slack signs with Bellator

Bellator FC has added unbeaten featherweight Shanon Slack prospect to their roster, an alternate on the 2008 U.S. Olympic Wrestling Team who has won all three of his professional MMA fights. Bellator also announced he will make his debut with the fight promotion against Booker Arthur at Bellator 69 on May 18.

“The Bellator featherweight division is tough as hell, and it was a huge reason why I decided to join Bellator,” said Slack in an interview with MMAWeekly. “The tournament format is something that really stood out to me, as well. There aren’t any politics involved, and like any fighter, I want my title shot.”

Slack was a stand-out wrestler in college at Old Dominion. He will join Bellator champions such as Michael Chandler, Ben Askren, and Cole Konrad in the organization as fighters with accomplished wrestling backgrounds.
