Former WWE pro wrestling star, Bobby Lashley, will reportedly have his next fight with the Palace Fighting Championship promotion. Lashley, 1-0 in his mixed martial arts career, will fight on the PFC’s February 6th card in Lenore, California.
Although an opponent has not been named, a list of fighters Lashley could face to possibly build up his fight resume has been sent to him for review.
Lashley attended Missouri Valley College, where he won three national amateur wrestling championships between 1996 and 1998 and placed fourth in 1995. Throughout 1997 and 1998, he was the National Association of Inter-collegiate Athletics (NAIA) National Wrestling Champion. Lashley later joined the United States Army, where he continued to wrestle.
The American Top Team fighter won his debut fight in December, disposing of Joshua Franklin in 41 seconds of the first round. Attempting to follow in the footsteps of fellow WWE alumnus, Brock Lesnar, Lashley looks to further his winning ways in mixed martial arts and has his sights set on gaining a heavyweight title as soon as possible.
As many fans may know, Dana White, president of the UFC, has publicly stated that he has no interest in signing Lashley any time soon. If Lashley can amass a couple of quality wins, White may be forced to reconsider.
