– Regarding TNA World Heavyweight Champion Bobby Lashley pulling out of his next Bellator MMA event due to an injury, he’s apparently suffering from a hand injury that happened during his October 24th fight against Karl Etherington.

Lashley was hoping to fight on February 27th against James Thompson but while training, his hand would swell up during grappling or any kind of punching.

Lashley is still able to wrestle with the hand injury, which is why he’s still performing for TNA and on the current UK tour. There is no date set for his Bellator return.
