Bobby Lashley's Strikeforce Opponent Revealed - Details
By Ryan Clark | January 24, 2010
Lashley spoke to ESPN on Friday, saying "This is great, man. I didn't know this. I'm happy. I just wanted an opponent. I've been training very hard on every aspect of my game - my wrestling, jiu-jitsu, and my standup. Now that I have an opponent, we can do a little bit of scouting on the guy."
Lashley was originally scheduled to fight Yohan Banks, but the Florida Boxing Commission rejected him as a worthy opponent. The next possible opponent was journeyman fighter Jimmy Ambriz, and he was approved by the commission, but Strikeforce scrapped that fight last week.
Strikeforce: Miami takes place on January 30, 2010 from the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, FL and will air live on Showtime.
