Shalorus: I'm going back to my old Kamal

by Andy Samuelson | source:

"I love California," he said. "If I had more money, I would live there. Beautiful ocean. People are always happy. But honestly I want to live here right now and make more money, save money. I have a good job and better sponsors." 

Shalorus said a couple of big car dealerships have helped him financially, and he can concentrate on training and "not worry about money."

Instead Shalorus, who wrestled for England in the 2004 Summer Olympics, can focus entirely on the veteran dos Anjos, who had been on a 4-1 UFC streak before losing a split decision to Gleison Tibau at UFC 139 this past November. 

"He's a great fighter, well-rounded, good jiu-jitsu, and a good striker that likes to go for takedowns," Shalorus said. "But I'm good too. It's going to be a very good fight, exciting. I'm going to be back to my old Kamal." 

If that is the case, fans should be excited to see the forward-moving Shalorus – who made his name on the national scene in three-round WEC clashes against Bart Palaszewski, Jamie Varner and Dave Jansen. 

"My trainers are pushing me so hard," Shalorus said of new coach Matt Terry and training partner Najim Wali. "But I don't want to be more technical. I want to be more attack. That's my style."

Also, Joe Silva is a little cunt for giving Kamal these match ups. Why were the last two people Kamal fought part of the same team with same coaches? I hope Kamal crushes Rafael.Amen

I was right. Shalarous placed 19th in an Olympic qualifer. Only one man represented Great Britain in the olympics that year. The Great Britain team manager from the 2004 Olympics discusses here how Shalarous was not an Olympian. He does give him props as a nice guy and good fighter though.

As far as I understand, Shalarous never actually wrestled in the Olympics at all, whether for Iran or England.He's a great fighter though and I enjoy watching him compete.
