Dave Huckaba tapped to meet Bobby Lashley

Bobby Lashley's opponent merry-go-round has finally come to rest.

Manager Leland LaBarre today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that Lashley (6-1) has agreed to fight Dave Huckaba (16-4) at Shark Fights 21 for the promotion's heavyweight title. Contracts are expected to be finalized shortly. Champ Darrill Schoonover, who recently withdrew from the event, is expected to relinquish his belt.

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.

The news puts to rest the selection Tim Hague as Schoonover's replacement. Early Monday morning, the promotion announced on its official Twitter account that the Canadian would take the fight, but shortly thereafter, officials denied signing him or putting together the matchup.

Thus enters Huckaba, who enjoys a five-fight win streak coming into the fight. Most recently, he outpointed veteran Ruben Villareal at Shark Fights 18, and holds two victories over EliteXC vet Bo Cantrell. Thirteen of his 16 wins come by way of TKO or KO.

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." The former professional wrestler is currently training at Denver's Grudge Training Center alongside UFC vets Brendan Schaub and Todd Duffee and will soon put in time with Strikeforce heavyweight Josh Barnett.

"I've been focusing on my standup and I'm ready to fight a striker like Dave," Lashley told MMAjunkie.com.
Nice test for Lashley

I was looking forward to seeing him fight somebody like Hague who is durable and would take him into deep water. Not real familiar with Huckaba but knowing he went the distance with Vireal is not real convincing.

Hey, Rogers went to the distance with Villareal and he is a former contender, isn't he..

Don't know much about Huckaba but he sure is experienced and i believe his a good test for Lashley.

good news, can't wait to see Lashley in the ring again. Against Ott he wasn't very convincing so I hope he brings his A-game to this one.

The problem with Lashley is his gas tank IMO. He is very strong in the first round and seems to fade in the later rounds. He better work on his GNP.
