Reality Fighting Results

Reality Fighting Results
By Gaby Genia

(November 18th, Atlantic City, NJ) Boardwalk Hall played host to yet another action-packed installment of promoter Kipp Kollar’s Reality Fighting show, this one dubbed "Fall Brawl". Featuring a card filled with impressive local talent, as anticipated, there were scuffles, fisticuffs and all-out-wars. Highlights of the evening:

  • The lightweight title fight. Though it was Edgar who took the decision after three white-knuckled rounds, both men showed determination, grit and phenomenal stamina. Miller was a serious threat right up to the tolling of the final bell, when he had Edgar in a tight guillotine. But Edgar had done more than enough to garner the decision, and he retained the belt in impressive fashion — despite losing a piece of his ear in the process.
  • The back-and-forth battle between two skilled competitors in Chris Schlesinger and Chris Ligouri, the fight for the welterweight belt was an intense grappling and ground-and-pound contest. Schlesinger took the first round with his frenzied jiu-jitsu, but was on the defense in the second when Ligouri pounded out the win.
  • The crowd-pleasing submission victory by Rhino Fight Team’s Guarino who avoided Khristian Geraci’s takedown with a guillotine.

Once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be held in team’s new home base in Reno, Nevada on November 29

NEW YORK and RENO, Nev., November 17, 2006- The International Fight League and head coach of the new Nevada-based Lions team, MMA legend Ken Shamrock, today announced that the team will hold an open tryout for elite MMA hopefuls at Reno’s premiere sports facility, The Stadium Sport and Fitness Club, located at 9393 Gateway in Reno, Nev., at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, November 29. Shamrock’s Lions will have eight team members, five of whom will be selected to compete per event, when the first IFL season opens in late January. The tryout is open to all experienced professional fighters. The full 11-date IFL season will also be announced during that week.

"While we do have some athletes in mind, we felt that there is a great interest in the sport and this would be a good opportunity to both show people what great athletic talent someone needs to compete in the IFL and to give some of that unknown talent a chance to shine," Shamrock said. "We will screen all of the applicants prior to the tryout and see if we can identify some of the new faces that will help mold the face of this rising sport. Holding the tryout in both a state and a city that is very passionate about MMA, and where we will be training as Reno’s first professional sports team, will be an added plus."

"One of the greatest things about the sport of Mixed Martial Arts today is that we are all finding that the pool of very elite talent and athleticism is deeper than we all may have thought," said IFL Co-founder and Commissioner Kurt Otto. "Having one of the world’s greatest competitors in Ken Shamrock give some of this talent an opportunity to succeed is very rare in professional sports, and it will be a treat to see which, if any, of these young hopefuls will stand up to the test."

The tryout will be limited based on space and time, and it will be open to the public for viewing. For further details, contact Jerry Milani at 212/356-4009.
