Although his impact on MMA hasn’t been as monumental as Brock Lesnar’s, TNA wrestling superstar Bobby Lashley owns a perfect 4-0 mixed martial arts record and emerges drastically improved each time he takes the cage.
Lashley will be making his Strikeforce debut this Saturday inside the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Florida. One of the many things he’s improved upon is his punching power, and he’s fully prepared to use Wes Sims’ face to showcase his skills.
“I’m hitting hard, man,” Lashley said of his strikes. “I know that. I’m hitting really hard right now. I’ve worked a lot on my striking and I think I’ve really tightened that up.”
Speaking of taking hard shots, Lashely was one of MMA’s most sought-after free agents prior to inking his Strikeforce deal last month. When asked why he chose the San Jose-based promotion, Lashely boldly stated, “If you want to fight the best in the world and Strikeforce has the best heavyweight in the world, wouldn’t it make sense to sign with them?”
Strikeforce: Miami takes place on January 30, 2010 from the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, FL and will air live on Showtime.
