Rumor Killer On Bobby Lashley’s Next MMA Fight

Posted by Tim Brown in WWE News
Wednesday, April 1st, 2009

Last week, a report from MMAFighting.com claimed that former WWE superstar Bobby Lashley’s third Mixed Martial Arts fight would take place on April 25th at Xtreme Fighting Championship’s “Regional Conflict” show. However that the news appears to be false, as XFC president John Prisco has issued the following statement:

“It’s come to our attention that a rumor has started circulating that Bobby Lashley will be fighting Marcus Jones at XFC ‘Regional Conflict’ on Saturday, April 25 – a show featuring the fastest-rising young prospects and top emerging superstars from Tennessee, Florida, Kentucky and North Carolina in contender-versus-contender bouts, airing exclusively nationwide on HDNet. That rumor is false, and no such statement was ever issued by the XFC, Bobby Lashley, or Bobby Lashley’s manager.”

“It is true that the XFC and Bobby Lashley have had numerous conversations, and both parties hope to find a way to work together in the very near future. Bobby has publicly stated his interest in fighting for the XFC, and we can confirm that the interest is mutual. We look forward to continuing to grow our relationship.

“The XFC hopes Bobby Lashley – and MMA fans nationwide – enjoy XFC 8 ‘Regional Conflict’ on April 25, as it airs live from the 21 thousand-capacity Thompson-Boling Arena in Knoxville, Tennessee, exclusively on HDNet. For more information, please visit www.mmaxfc.com.”

Lashley won his first fight ever when he made his MMA debut last December with a first round TKO. You can see a video of that fight at this link.

    Kicking off 2010’s mixed martial arts is the brilliant UFC 108. It’s definitely going to be a great event with the kickoff being Evans vs Silva going head to head. You can watch ufc 108 free for FREE in full HD without paying that grotty $55.95 PPV cost.
