Chip Moraza-Pollard Is Ready To Show Bellator Fans He Is Ready

Bellator has working on their own fighting show much like UFC's The Ultimate Fighter.  The show is called Fight Master: Bellator MMA and it is set to air on June 19th on Spike TV.  The show will be hosted by Jimmy Smith and will have big names helping them along.  They are Randy Couture, Joe Warren, Greg Jackson and Frank Shamrock as the coaches.  The welterweights will battle it out during the 10 episode season and the winner will be awarded $100,000 and will enter in the Bellator tournament.  Yesterday Bellator announced the 32 finalists and Chip Moraza-Pollard has made it.  Chip is from Plymouth Mass and trains with Cape Cod Fighting Alliance.  He comes onto the show with a 7-4 record and is just 24 years old.      I was able to talk with Chip briefly yesterday and I asked him what we can expect from him on the show.  "You can expect what I always try to bring to the cage and that is excitement" says Pollard.  I saw the Surgeon fight Ricardo Georges back in July of 2012 for Cage Titans and he looked outstanding.  He ended up winning that fight via decision and he showed everyone he has some excellent striking.  He has proven he can go the distance.  In fact 3 out of his 4 losses were from a decision with one of them being split.  With the Bellator coaches he is ready to bring his mma game to the next level.  "It is awesome getting to be a part of something big, they picked 32 of the best welterweights they could find from everywhere so it is an honor being one of them" explains Chip.  We at will be following along and we wish you the best of luck Chip.  For the rest of the fighters that made it click the source link below.
