Former national wrestling champion turned pro wrestler, turned mixed martial artist — Bobby Lashley (8-2) returns to the cage after over a year layoff. Taking on Kevin Asplund (15-5), it was no surprise that the former Strikeforce fighter was a heavy favorite, considering Asplund had been coming off three straight losses.
If you’re not a Georges St-Pierre fan, you’re likely not a Lashley fan either. Much like his WWE predecessor Brock Lesnar making the transition to MMA, Bobby uses his sheer power and wrestling abilities to dominate. Earning his second key-lock submission in the second round, Lashley has gained back the needed confidence that was lost at Super Fight League against James Thompson.
If you don’t have AXS TV and you’re an MMA fan, I sympathize for you. The channel puts on great fight cards from around the world, every Friday night.
