As previously discussed in our articles, Liam McGeary is someone on the fight scene who is bound to get noticed, by fans and promotions alike. This Undefeated Professional Mixed Martial Artist has finished all his fights via submission or knockout; he never lets it go to decision. His fighting style is unique and he is growing in popularity among fight fans.
This UK fighter now trains in America with gyms like Renzo Gracie’s New York gym and for Church Street Boxing. He discusses his fight camp stating “Same training partners same team, same places, I don’t like to go anywhere to different gyms I like my gyms I am comfortable there”
With His previous KO Victory against Micheal Mucetilli , Liam is now 4-0 inside Bellator with 4 stoppages all in the first round and under 90 seconds. In his debut he KOed Antan Talamantes at Bellator 95, he jaw jacked Beau Tribolet at Bellator 100. At Bellator 108, he submitted Mojtaba Najim Wall via armbar.
Liam is slated to fight Egidijus Valavicius (27-10) On July 25th 2014. Valavicius defends takedowns and can defiantly withstand some heavy hits. When asked about his opponent McGeary stated
“ I’ve studied what he does. I know what he does well. He’s a striker I’m a striker if it goes to the ground I’ll go to the ground. I don’t like to over think things, it happens to be a big fight, but I don’t want to look at it as a big one, just as a fight to focus on”
He continues with “I don’t plan on loosing anytime soon”.
Liam stated “ I would like to thank all my Sponsors: Future Legends, Attack Poker, MMA overload and G force. My coaches Henzo Gracie, Jason Strout at Church Street Boxing, Jamal Patterson All Star BJJ. Danny Ligouri, my manager, and all my training partners that helped me get ready for this fight”.
When he was asked how he felt about his growing popularity in the sport he acclaimed “it’s all pretty new to me I am just taking everything in as it happens, everything is exciting”
Valvaciius comes to this fight as the more experienced fighter with a proven knock out power as well. Liam, however is one of Bellators top prospects, training with the best to prefect his ground game, which shows he just doesn’t purely rely on his KO capability. This should be a battle that can go one of two ways, finish in the first round via knockout ( since both are finishers) or be an all-out war through the rounds. This fight will defiantly be a crowd pleaser that will excite and thrill fans. Both fighters are hungry to get to the finals of what could potentially be one of the last tournaments in Bellators history.
