Kansas City, MO: Rising mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion Global Warrior Challenge (GWC) is excited to announce that MMA/pro wrestling superstar Bobby Lashley will be competing at its inaugural MMA event, "THE BRITISH INVASION: U.S. vs. U.K.," which will take over the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Missouri on Saturday, June 29, 2013.
Though Lashley’s opponent is still in process of being finalized, the bout will surely only add to the action-packed fights already scheduled, which will feature some of the best fighters from the United States and the United Kingdom as they battle each other in a country versus country format.
