Former WWE Wrestler Bobby Lashley Signs with Shark Fights
Strikeforce veteran, Bobby Lashley, has inked a three-year fight deal with Shark Fights; debut slated for November.
Former professional wrestler and collegiate amateur wrestler, Bobby Lashley, has now found a new home. The officials announced last Saturday that the fighter, who made a professional MMA debut last 2008, has signed a three-fight deal with the Shark Fights promotion.
The financial terms of the deal, as well as the debut date and opponent, were not yet revealed. However, Bobby Lashley is expected to be a part of a Shark Fights event in Missouri this coming November.
Shark Fights is undeniably one of the MMA’s top regional promotions. It has even expanded its capacity through signing a partnership with HDNet and FUEL TV. Its seventh show of 2011 is now slated sometime this month.
Bobby Lashley (6-1) inks under the new promotion after withdrawing from a Titan Fighting Championship bout last July. He was supposed to meet Eddie Sanchez, but he was scratched off from the fight card due to personal reasons. He hasn’t fought since he attained a decision victory over John Ott at the Titan Fighting Championships 17 event last March. Prior to the said victory, the former WWE wrestler had his first and only career loss — a second-round TKO (retirement) to Chad Griggs at Strikeforce: Houston in 2010.
Before signing a WWE contract in November 2004, Lashley became a two-time NAIA national wrestling champion and a U.S. Army wrestler.View Article Source »
