Current TNA World Champion and Bellator MMA crossover athlete Bobby Lashley has his next MMA assignment. Bellator officials announced this week that the pro wrestling star will return to the cage for his latest MMA bout at their upcoming event on October 21st in Memphis, Tennessee. No opponent, however, has yet to be revealed for Lashley’s fight.
The fight will mark the fifth appearance in the Bellator cage for the heavyweight contender who has been undefeated in the promotion thus far.
Lashley’s last fight under the Bellator banner took place at Bellator 145 back in November of 2015, where he defeated former PRIDE FC veteran James Thompson via TKO stoppage due to punches at just 54 seconds into the first round.
Bobby Lashley currently holds a pro MMA record of 14-2 and will be competing in his 17th MMA fight in what has been a 10-year part-time career he has pursued while doing pro wrestling on a semi-regular basis.
The only fight confirmed for Bellator 162 on October 21, 2016, which emanates from the FedEx Forum in Memphis, Tennessee, outside of the Lashley vs. TBA bout is the return of former Bellator Middleweight Champion Alexander Shlemenko, who takes on veteran of The Ultimate Fighter 3, Kendall Grove.
