CHICAGO IFL TEAM GETS TRANSFERS: Palaszewski, Matyushenko Join Former Red Bears Squad
By Chris Yucus
International Fight League lightweight slugger Bart Palaszewski is leaving Pat Miletich’s tutelage for the Chicago-based IFL team.
According to Palaszewski, the team will be affiliated with former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski’s team and trainers and will include former Chicago Red Bear Mark Miller (8-2) and IFL light heavyweight champion Vladimir Matyushenko (20-3).
[...]Palaszewski (28-10) expects a title shot if he can get past his next fight, which he said will be on Friday, April 4. It will be a rematch of his controversial submission loss to Deividas Taurosevicius (9-2) at the 2007 IFL World Championship last September in Hollywood, Fla.
