A recent report surfaced on MMAFighting.com annoucing former WWE star Bobby Lashley will take on former PRIDE and Elite XC veteran James Thompson May 6th from New Delhi, India.
A former amateur and professional wrestler, Lashey holds a 7-1 professional record with his only loss coming to Chad Griggs while competing for Strikeforce. Since that loss, Lashley has won two consecutive contests, most recently submitting Karl Knothe with a keylock to capture the Shark Fights heavyweight championship.
James Thompson, perhaps most known for his highly watched loss on network television to Kimbo Slice, most recently defeated Bob Sapp at Super Flight league 1. Sapp was forced to tap out to an apparent leg injury in the first round.
The Lashley vs. Thompson fight will headline a card that will also feature Trevor Prangley. SFL 3 will air live and for free on Super Fight League’s YouTube channel.
