HDNet officials announced that former professional wrestler-turned-heavyweight mixed martial artist Bobby Lashley (6-1) will face Eddie Sanchez (12-5) at Titan Fighting Championships 19 on July 28th.
Lashley parted ways with Strikeforce when he decided not to re-up with the promotion at the end of his contract earlier this year. He made his debut with Titan Fighting Championship in March, earning a lackluster unanimous decision victory over light-heavyweight John Ott, who gave up 37 pounds in the bout. Lashley dominated Ott in the first round, however was visibly tired in the second round before completely gassing in the third.
Sanchez is a UFC veteran, who recently competed with Bellator Fighting Championships. He is coming off a split-decision loss to The Ultimate Fighter 2 alum Mike Whitehead at a Pure Fighting Championships event in Red Deer, Alberta, Canada last December.
Titan Fighting Championships 19 takes place on July 28, 2011 from Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kansas. The fight will air live on HDNet.
