Fresh off a second round submission win over Kevin Asplund at Titan FC 25 earlier this month, former WWE superstar Bobby Lashley (8-2) will return to pro MMA action on June 29th when he faces a soon to be named opponent at Global Warrior Challenge’s “British Invasion” card at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo.

There’s a classic episode of the Sopranos (R.I.P. James Gandolfini) where Johnny Sack catches his dear sweet obese wife Ginny in the basement gorging on a box of candy bars. She’s supposed to be on Weight Watchers but isn’t losing any weight and now her husband knows why. He even forgives Ralph Cifaretto for the joke he told about Ginny having a 40 pound mole removed from her ass, and decides not to kill him.
Back to the old night and plenty to discuss on this Thursday evening. Bellator returned last night and are they happy with the numbers? Resurrection Fighting Alliance 8 takes place tomorrow night from Milwaukee with a spectacular card featuring Sergio Pettis and Lance Palmer. UFC is on a bit of a break but plenty of news to go over on that front.
I’m grateful to say I’ve been busy recently, and that trend looks to continue for the rest of the summer. Shows in FL, IN, NE, MO, and WI just this month alone. In that time I’ve had frustrations with inconsistent commission rulings and decisions, few of which make sense, but that is par for the industry. I want to take time to recognize the positives that I encounter with this job.
