Lashley targeted for WSOF 1
The World Series of Fighting announced today that the promotion and NBC have reached a deal, and the new guys on the MMA scene in Las Vegas are bringing star power with them.
Lashley is of course famous for his background in professional wrestling, becoming a popular figure in the sport. He has since gone on to fight professionally in mixed martial arts, looking to follow a path similar to that of Brock Lesnar.
Beginning his MMA career with five straight victories, including a technical knockout win over Wes Sims under the Strikeforce banner, Lashley has gone 2-2 in his last four.
He last competed this past May, losing a unanimous decision to James Thompson at "Super Fight League 3."
