Former WWE and TNA wrestler Bobby Lashley will return to the MMA cage on March 25th, but it won’t be for the Strikeforce promotion.
Lashley (5-1) has signed with Titan Fighting Championship for a fight against James Jack (5-4-1) on Mar. 25 that will be televised on HDNet.
This is Lashley’s first fight since suffering his first career loss against relatively unknown fighter Chad Griggs at Strikeforce: Houston last August.
“Anyone who is writing Bobby off is making a huge mistake,” Titan CEO Joe Kelly said in a statement on Friday as part of Lashley’s announced return fight. “I believe that Titan Fighting will be the perfect platform for Bobby to prove his critics wrong.”
There had been talk of Bobby Lashley fighting fellow former WWE star Dave Bautista, but is appears Lashley is looking to get a win under his belt before entering a high-profile fight like that. No word in recent weeks regarding Bautista’s MMA training.
