“Right now, this is the best opportunity for what I want to do,” Merriman said to ESPN in a statement. “I’ve been kicking tires for years, this is a good place for me to start. I’m looking forward to having some fun out there. I get to train for the next six to eight weeks and go show everyone what I can do.”

“We are thrilled to have Shawne as part of our team,” said WBKFF CEO Tom Stankiewicz. “Shawne was a proven warrior on the field and we look forward to seeing him in the ring.
