Bobby Lashley Returns to MMA, Will Fight James Jack on March 25

Quote:
Former pro wrestling star Bobby Lashley lost the last time he stepped into the mixed martial arts cage, but he's not done fighting.

Titan Fighting Championship has announced the signing of Lashley, who will fight James Jack on March 25 in a show televised on HDNet. The card will also feature former UFC star Phil Baroni taking on a little-known fighter named Nick Nolte.

For Titan, signing Lashley is a strong indication that the promotion is willing to spend money to acquire recognizable names. The promotion also spent big to acquire Tim Sylvia, who was knocked out in 32 seconds by Abe Wagner last month. The question is whether Titan can build enough of a following among MMA fans to justify the expenses of fighters like Sylvia and Lashley.

Titan Fighting CEO Joe Kelly is confident that his promotion is building the right way.

"We received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback from the MMA community following our HDNet debut on January 28," Kelly said. "A lot of unique opportunities have presented themselves to Titan since the show and working with Bobby Lashley was one of them. We are really excited to be working with Bobby as he continues his pursuit of MMA greatness."

Lashley won his first five fights while taking on overmatched opponents early in his career then was upset by Chad Griggs in August. Jack should be a beatable opponent for him, but then again, that's what everyone thought about Griggs.
So he's gone from Strikeforce eh? Say what you say about him, i'm still a fan of his.

Im a fan buddy, but retiring after that lose was pretty sad...

And how was his conditioning so bad his last fight... To much Fake Wrestling shit....

Dana is saving Brocks ass as a MMA fighter for not letting him focus on anything other then fighting...

Theres a lot of scripts to memorize in WWF The sport of Men in Speedos for the Boys to watch dancing around in.

Oh and i cant forget the constant pointless Screaming at each other so that one guy can run in and do a really awkward looking punch and a really hard foot stomp at the same time, Over.. And Over...


Ps.... I will admit i was a fan when i was a little boy watching Jake the Snake, Andre the Giant and Hulk Hogan days...

I was a WWE fan when i grew up as well. Guy's like The Rock and Steve Austin were awesome. Haven't really watched it in like 2-3 years. I still miss wrasslin but just can't take it seriously anymore.

Lashley has got that raw potential, but he seriously needs to focus on his cardio and take MMA more seriously if he wants to be great.

He was putting a beating on Griggs to be fair to him before he had his bitch fit and crumbled.

Yeah i agree that the lose had 100% to do with Cardio, and maybe him seeing Griggs kick ass made him realize he did good against him until u gassed

Not to give Lashely any excuses and take anything away from Griggs, but didn't he have some kind of illness or whatever before the fight? And some hydration thing was in the air as well. Bobby wasn't his normal self though, he went 3 rounds with Jason Guida and the fight was kinda action packed and he didn't gas.

im not sure what Lashley is worse at, fake wrestling or real fighting. Either way he is going nowhere in either.

I think it's quite obvious by now but what's the difference really? At least his doing what he loves - competing and his fun to watch.
