After spending some time in the hospital, Bobby Lashley is back on his feet.

In Saturday’s Strikeforce: Houston, fighter Bobby Lashley was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance after his loss to Chad Griggs.

In a statement from Lashley’ manager Dan Lambert, he said that the fighter experienced dehydration and required four IVs before being released from the hospital.

The brawl was mostly dominated by Lashley but when Griggs delivered an uppercut on the the former’s left eye, the fight turned upside down. Lashley was not able to redeem himself after his injury because Griggs gave away massive punches.

Lambert also denied the online rumors that there were issues concerning Lashley’s blood tests after the fight.

Parsons: Knee Surgery Could Sideline “King Mo” Lawal

Former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal might be forced to take the wayside for nine months. He "will undergo knee surgery to replace both his anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments in his left knee," according to his manager Ryan Parsons.

Lawal just came fresh from a title defeat to Rafael “Feijiao” Cavalcante at Strikeforce: Houston on Saturday after the former contender downed the collegiate wrestling champ with a series of knee strikes and a right hand. The present light-heavyweight champ forced out a third-round referee stoppage afterwards.

That is where Lawal abruptly stopped for the scorecards, as he is used to topping those. It was in the same brawl that Lawal incurred his injury. His surgery will take place next Tuesday in Los Angeles.

After an examination by a physician last Monday, Parson spoke the news, “Mo wanted to take one more fight, but we decided that this injury should be attended to first.” This is not the first time the 29-year-old former champ will undergo surgery. He also went through an ACL surgery after injuring his ligament in the first round of March 2009’s Sengoku “Seventh Battle”.

WWE pro Booker T pondered the loss of his past contemporary, Bobby Lashley, in an interview during Strikeforce: Houston Saturday. Here is a friend's analysis and advice, what he did think Lashley still has to do come his friend's next fight.

Bobby Lashley suffered a very disappointing loss from Chad Griggs. While the fights wore out, professional wrestling’s Booker T conveyed his thoughts from his own point-of-view regarding Lashley’s performance, whether MMA is posing a threat to pro wrestling and whether his mind had conceived fighting.

When Lashley came on to the cage, Booker T noted that the fighter was nervous, and he wanted that negative energy out fast. Lashley released it too soon. Besides, Bobby “let the crowd get to him today.” But the pro fighter has so much respect for the guys who get into the cage, especially for the man he went into the ring together in their WWE heydays. Booker T said, Lashley is “a warrior…they fight tie-to-toe, one-on-one, mano-a-mano…[you’ve got to] give these guys respect.”
