A New Englander Steps Up
By Jim Genia
Today, the Ring of Fury promotion returns to Lowell, Massachusetts, and one of the highlights of the card is the match-up of three-time UFC-veteran Steve Berger against local welterweight Nuri Shakir [Photo courtesy of USMMA]. "Nuri who?" you might ask. Nuri Shakir: a 23-year old Small Circle Jiu-jitsu practitioner and member of Team Elite, with a 6-3 closed-fist mixed martial arts record and a long list of wins in open-handed competition (the only form of MMA competition allowed in Massachusetts until recently). Hailing from Nashua, New Hampshire, Shakir has fought at Dangerzone, the IFC, and Gladiator Challenge. At the last Ring of Fury, he squared off against Berger’s teammate Todd Fox and broke the Missouri-native’s jaw en route to victory. For Shakir, known as an aggressive striker and crowd-pleaser, this is a big chance to shine against top-level competition. At Ring of Fury 2, this New Englander is stepping up.
