Bobby Lashley battling James Thompson in May at Super Fight League 3

Professional wrestler-turned-Mixed Martial Artist Bobby Lashley will travel to India for his next fight, signing to meet James Thompson at Super Fight League 3. The card will take place in New Delhi on May 6 and will stream live on YouTube.

Lashley (7-1) is an ex-Strikeforce competitor who will be looking for his third straight win in the scrap. He was rumored as a possible opponent for Fedor Emelianenko in June but that appears off the table with the Thompson signing. Five of his wins have involved some form of finish.

Comparably, Thompson (17-14) defeated Bob Sapp on the first SFL card with a lackluster submission in the opening round. He too is coming off back-to-back wins.

In addition to Thompson-Lashley, SFL also announced bouts between Trevor Prangley-Baga Agaev and Zelg Galesic-Doug Marshall for the event.

    I guess Lashley decided to take a fight where he wouldn’t be a 50-1 dog.

    Fedor retains some credibility by NOT taking this fight.

    I think the possibility of Fedor & Lashley fighting was mere speculation to begin with… I mean there is only a handful of options for Fedor outside of Zuffa so anybody can just throw a name out there and be taken even a lil bit serious….

    You’re probably right Rece, but Fedor would have been silly to take that fight.

    ZUFFA is in negotiations with Fedor to challenge JDS for the title in May but Fedor wants to postpone it until July.
    Not really.

    The truth is if both were in the UFC and fought none of you would have a problem with it. I am serious when I say that if Lashley was in the UFC he prolly would have had a title shot and all those that hate on Fedor would be saying Fedor would last 1 rd with Lashley. Sad but true.
