Gugerty, to Replace Aurelio in Shine Fights
Anyone involved in the mixed martial arts is no exception in acquiring injuries, and one of them is the "Maximus." Good thing, there is a warrior in Shannon Gugerty who's willing to take the challenge in lieu of Aurelio.
UFC/VETERAN Marcus “Maximus” Aurelio sustained an injury while training for the upcoming Shine Fights this weekend. Due to this, the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu master has been forced to leave his post, and taking his place will be Shannon Gugerty. A fellow submission specialist, Gugerty began his professional MMA career with a submission victory over Cub Swanson. The Brazilian Jiu Jitsu brown belt amassed a 10-2 record and was eventually invited to fight for UFC, where he has competed five times. The 28-year-old San Diego native racked up wins over Dale Hartt and Matt Grice during his time with the UFC. The Shine Fights COO, Jason Chambers, stated that Gugerty is a real warrior as he stepped up on the challenge within three days notice. It will definitely be exciting to see Gugerty compete!View Article Source »
