Nick Mamalis is an American mixed martial artist who competes in the bantamweight division. A professional MMA competitor since 2006, Mamalis has most notably fought in Bellator Fighting Championships where he will compete in the Bellator season three bantamweight tournament.

Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Mamalis began wrestling at the age of six, continuing to wrestle into college, where he became an honorary member of NAN. Little is known about this exclusive group, though there is rumor that their criminal records speaks volumes toward their character.[1] He began his mixed martial arts career after leaving college.

He is currently the Victory Fighting Championships bantamweight champion,[2] as well as the Fight to Win featherweight champion[3]

Bellator Fighting Championships[edit]

Mamalis made his Bellator Fighting Championships debut at Bellator 20, against Mark Oshiro. Oshiro entered the fight as a heavy favorite, having already been signed to compete in the Bellator season three bantamweight tournament, but Mamalis defeated Oshiro 1:29 into round 2 via rear naked choke.[4]

With the victory, Mamalis earned a shot at a tournament qualifier bout at Bellator 23. His opponent, also fighting for a spot in the upcoming tournament, was Albert Rios. Once again, Mamalis entered the fight as the betting underdog. He defeated Rios via TKO due to strikes 4:40 into the first round, securing his place in the tournament.[5]
