With only eight days until the curtain is drawn for “Strikeforce: Miami,” heavyweight Bobby Lashley has finally been assigned an opponent.
MMAJunkie.com is reporting that the TNA wrestling superstar will face MMA veteran Wes Sims inside the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Florida on January 30th.
Sims is a three-time UFC veteran and “The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights” contestant. The MMA funnyman owns a 22-12-1 professional record and is currently enjoying a three-fight winning streak. He was last seen knocking out Jason DeAngelo at “Full Contact Fight Series 29? in November.
Lashley stakes claim to a perfect 4-0 record, but most importantly, has shown drastic levels of improvement in his MMA game each time he takes the cage. Only one of his fights have gone past the first round. In his last outing this past June, Lashley submitted Bob Sapp (via PUNCHES) at “Ultimate Chaos.”
