Kamal Shalorus (born August 27, 1972) is a British-Iranian professional mixed martial arts fighter. He currently fights in WEC's lightweight division.

Early lifeEdit

Born in a small village in northern Iran, Shalorus began wrestling as a teenager in Iran before beginning training in Turkey and Russia at the age of 17. He represented Great Britain in the 2004 Summer Olympics and at one time was ranked among the top 10 in the world in freestyle wrestling.[1] He was granted British citizenship and then moved to Austin, Texas in 2006 with his American girlfriend. He began training in MMA upon his arrival in the US.

WECEdit

He was scheduled to make his WEC debut against Alex Karalexis on November 18, 2009 at WEC 44[2], but a broken hand forced Karalexis off the card.[3] Karalexis was replaced by WEC newcomer Will Kerr.[4] Shalorus defeated Kerr via TKO in the very first round.[5]

Shalorus defeated previously unbeaten Dave Jansen via unanimous decision on January 10, 2010 at WEC 46. Shalorus showed impressive striking, takedown offense and defense. It was also noted, by Frank Mir, that Kamal will be a force to be reckoned with.[6]

Shalorus was expected to face former WEC Lightweight Champion Jamie Varner on April 24, 2010 at WEC 48[7], but Shalorus has been forced off of the card with an injury.[8]

Kamal is also a partner in and official grappling instructor for the American Combat Association. Kamal certifies mma schools in his fighting system known as Shalorus Integrated Combat System (SICS) through the ACA. [1]
