Schultz Finds Security With Sengoku

Monday, July 28, 2008
by Brian Knapp (bknapp@sherdog.com)

International Fight League lightweight champion Ryan Schultz (Pictures) ended his search for professional stability in the open arms of the Japan-based Sengoku promotion.

Schultz has agreed to a five-event deal with Sengoku that begins with his participation in an eight-man lightweight grand prix on Aug. 24 at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. The deal could span six fights if Schultz reaches the final of the tournament. Financial terms were not disclosed.

I think Zuffa blew it with this one. Oh well... I guess there's a non-zero chance I might be able to see the grand prix.

Well, at least they didn't hold his contract and not allow him to fight for other orgs like they did with many Pride guys. Good luck to Schultz, he would have been a top 5 priority for me to sign if I were with Zuffa.
