Former NFL star Merriman signs deal with World Bare Knuckle Fighting Federation

August 1 2018 11:56 PM

Shawne Merriman is joining the World Bare Knuckle Fighting Federation.

The 34-year-old former linebacker recently signed a deal with the organisation and his first fight is expected to take place later this year.

"Right now, this is the best opportunity for what I want to do," Merriman told ESPN. "I've been kicking tyres 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."

Merriman was named a Pro Bowl player three times with the San Diego Chargers from 2007-09. He also played for the Buffalo Bills during his eight-year career, which ended after the 2012 season.
