Ferrid Kheder Out, Josh Shockley In For Bellfort 155lbs. Quarterfinals
SHREVEPORT, LA. (March 11, 2011) â€” Josh Shockley certainly got more than he bargained for at the Bellator 36 weigh-ins today when he was given a quarterfinal spot in the Season 4 Bellator Lightweight Tournament, taking the place of Ferrid Kheder who was unable to make weight.
Shockley, who originally planned to fight on the undercard, now faces Bellator veteran Toby Imada tomorrow night at Bellator 36 which takes place at the Shreveport Municipal Auditorium in Shreveport, LA and will air LIVE on MTV2. The Indiana-native brings an impressive undefeated 6-0-1 professional record into his fight with ever dangerous Toby Imada.
â€œWeâ€™ve had high hopes for Josh since we signed him, this is a great opportunity for him,â€ said Bellator Chairman and CEO Bjorn Rebney. â€œHe really doesnâ€™t have anything to lose and that makes him a very dangerous fighter.â€
