Bobby Lashley signs with Shark Fights, could debut in November

Bobby Lashley is out to prove that he can still be a force in MMA, and he’s just signed a three-year deal with Shark Fights in order to do so. It’s likely that he will make his promotional debut in November, although no opponent has been given.

The news comes courtesy of FoxSports.com.

“It’s going to be big for us,” said Shark Fights CEO Bud Brutsman. “When you’re a little organization you need to make some noise, and Bobby is the perfect one to make some noise. There is nobody better than him right now that’s out there. By signing Bobby were saying we’re willing to put our money out there to make it happen, and bring in and sign the bigger-name talent, and not just has-beens and nobodies.”

After losing to Chad Griggs at Strikeforce: Houston back in August 2010, Lashley returned to action this past March at Titan FC 17. Although he picked up a decision victory against John Ott, the former WWE champion was criticized for failing to put away a natural middleweight who entered the fight with a 8-7 record.

The 35-year-old heavyweight enlisted the help of fellow heavyweight Josh Barnett this past July in order to take his game to the next level.

    Shark Fights CEO Bud Brustman went on to say” We currently have our team looking for inexperienced and under qualified fighters that can fit into our heavyweight division. We have made a gross investment into an over hyped bodybuilder and would like to sign at least 2 or 3 people that he can’t possibly lose to.”
    “We feel if we can hire a few people that can come in under the 265 weight limit and have minimal MMA experience and promise to not fight too hard we can keep Bobby from tiring out inside the 3 minute mark of round 1.”

    “We here at Shark Fights think it is possible to hype Bobby Lashley up enough that those who have seen him fight before will be fooled into buying a ticket for our event under the impression he has improved.”

    why didnt they sign a big MMA star instead of this clown? i’m sure all the other guys on their roster will appreciate being called nobodies and has-beens though.

    By signing Bobby were saying we’re willing to try and buy our way into popularity rather than promoting young fighters or veterans of the game who have been fighting for years and have helped make this sport what it is today, fuck those guys
