Bobby Lashley to Strikeforce, makes promotional debut January 30

December
11

Pro-wrestler turned MMA fighter Bobby Lashley has been signed by the Strikeforce organization and will make his debut on the January 30 card.

“I’m looking forward to fighting for STRIKEFORCE and challenging myself by taking on some of the top heavyweights in MMA,” said Lashley.

With heavyweights dropping like flies in the UFC, I am a little surprised Dana White did not scoop Lashley up first. He has a notable name from his stint in pro-wrestling, and would add some depth to the injury laden division.

The January Strikeforce card is shaping up like this:

-Cris “Cyborg” Santos (8-1) vs. Marloes Coenen (17-3)
-Nick Diaz (20-7) vs. TBA
-Jay Hieron (18-4) vs. TBA
-Herschel Walker (0-0) vs. TBA
-K.J. Noons (7-2) vs. TBA
-Bobby Lashley (4-0) vs. TBA
