Former professional wrestler, Bobby Lashley, will be making his long-awaited debut in MMA. December 13th seems to be the date as Lashley confirmed. “We have the contract in hand right now and we are just working out all the details but December 13th will be the date.” Lashley told MMANews.
Although the promotion that he is fighting for is currently unclear due to contract negotiations, Lashley was able to say that the event will be in Florida, and will be held at the American Airlines Arena.
Since his announcement that he will be fighting in Mixed Martial Arts, Lashley has been training at American Top Team in Florida where some of the sport’s biggest stars have come from. Fighters like Thiago Alves, Wilson Gouveia, “JZ” Calvancante and Thiago Silva all call ATT home.
