Bobby Lashley facing UFC veteran Tim Hague at Shark Fights 21

Quote:
After seeing Ultimate Fighter 10 cast-member Darrill Schoonover pull out of a planned bout with Bobby Lashley for the Shark Fights heavyweight title due to injury, the promotion has announced a replacement for Schoonover in the form of Tim Hague.

Hague-Lashley will serve as the main event of Shark Fights 21 on November 11 from Lubbock, Texas and, regardless of the replacement, will still feature the organizationís heavyweight strap as a prize to be had by the winner.

In Hague, Lashley gets a former UFC fighter perhaps known best for his submission win over Pat Barry while competing inside the Octagon. At 13-5, Hague has meet some of the biggest names in the sport and has finished eleven of his foes. However, as intriguing as the fight may be in terms of a test for Lashley, the 28-year old Canadian said on his Twitter account Monday that the fight is not 100% set yet.

Lashley (6-1) rebounded from his first career loss to defeat John Ott at Titan FC 17 earlier this year. Lashley, a former WWE superstar, signed a multi-fight deal with Shark Fights a few months ago and will be making his debut under the companyís banner. In his seven professional appearances Lashley has already picked up wins over veterans Wes Sims and Bob Sapp.

No other match-ups have been announced for the show but are expected to be revealed over the coming weeks.

The same day someone from the company's official Twitter account announced the fight, Shark Fights officials since have denied that their next event will feature a heavyweight headliner between ex-WWE star and Strikeforce vet Bobby Lashley (6-1) and UFC vet Tim Hague (13-5).

Shark Fights officials today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) the fight hasn't been booked.

They also said they "have no idea" who tweeted the news from the company's Twitter account.

"It's not Tim Hague," Shark Fights CEO Bud Brutsman said. "We haven't even signed him."

Shark Fights 21 takes place Nov. 11 at Fair Park Coliseum in Lubbock, Texas. The event airs via delay on FUEL TV on Dec. 23.

Early this morning, a tweet stated that Hague would be filling in for Shark Fights heavyweight champ Darrill Schoonover (11-5), who was forced out of the Lashley fight with a shoulder injury this past week.

There's no word on who ultimately will take the spot. However, Brutsman said it'll be the for the title since they've stripped Schoonover of the belt.

Lashley, who recently signed a three-fight deal with Shark Fights, hasn't fought since a decision victory over John Ott at Titan Fighting Championships 17 in March. The victory followed his first and only career loss: a second-round TKO (via retirement) to Chad Griggs at "Strikeforce: Houston."

Shark Fights is a Texas-based promotion and one of the more successful regional promotions. In addition to FUEL TV, events sometimes air on HDNet.

Shame if its not Hague, that would have been a really good fight, Lashleys toughest test so far. Hague is a big dude, would test his wrestling and stamina. Home they get someone his caliber, maybe McCorkle or someone, and don't give him a bum with a 8-8 record or something.

I like the sound of McCorkle, both have a small gas tank which would even things out. I'd favor Lashley and his wrestling in that fight, as one dimensional as his TD's seem, they are still very good.

Lashley seems like a good dude, but I havent gotten the impression that he has ever really put in the proper amount of work if he really wants to become a top level fighter. When Lesnar came to the UFC, you could watch the guy and tell that he had been working his ass of. I have never gotten that feeling from Lashley.

Who knows how dedicated he is, i have watched most of his MMA training videos in his fightbobby or sth youtube channel and he does seem like he works hard.

Losing to Griggs while looking like shit and struggling with a less then mediocre fighter that isnt anywhere near his size in Jason Guida is what makes me question his dedication.
