With four fights under his belt in his young mixed martial arts career and four wins to go with, Bobby Lashley will look to make it five in a row on October 3rd In Denver, CO when he fights for the fourth time this year. The fight will take place under the Prize Fight Promotions banner, the same company who he last fought for, winning in the first round against Bob “The Beast” Sapp
Lashley’s marketing team, Method Marketing Agency, confirmed the fight with MMANews.com earlier today. No opponent is penciled in for the bout but it should all be sorted out shortly.
Lashley, 4-0, is a relative new comer to the sport, debuting in December of 2008. He has fought four times, winning all four fights. Two of his wins have come via a (T)KO while the others have come via a submission and decision.
There were rumors that Lashley would fight Don Frye in the fall but that fight was purely that, rumor, which started when Frye made a comment about wanting to fight Lashley.
The fight will be a hometown fight for the big man, as he fights out of Denver.
Although Lashley made a name for himself during a stint in the WWE between 2005 and 2008, he has an amateur wrestling background in which he is a national champion and has spent the better part of his training time at American Top Team in Florida.
