Former WWE superstar Bobby Lashley will meet Mark Martinez at Shark Fights 21 this coming Friday night, as Martinez becomes the third different opponent for Lashley since he signed with the Texas-based promotion.
The Lashley-Martinez bout will crown a heavyweight champion for Shark Fights. The show will be broadcast via tape-delay later this year on FUEL TV.
Lashley was originally scheduled to meet Darrill Schoonover, but a shoulder injury knocked the former Ultimate Fighter participant out. His next opponent, Dave Huckaba, pulled out earlier this week for undisclosed reasons.
Lashley (6-1) defeated John Ott at Titan Fighting Championships 17 earlier this year. Martinez is 4-1, including wins in each of his past four fights.
