Bobby Lashley (1-0), Hector Lombard (18-2-1), and Alexis Vila (4-0) have each signed a one-fight contract with Palace Fighting Championships and will debut with the promotion on February 6th at PFC 13 at the Tachi Palace Hotel & Casino in Lemoore, California.
A former professional wrestler and three-time amateur wrestling champion, Lashley successfully made his MMA debut on December 13th with an impressive 41-second TKO of Joshua Franklin at Mixed Fighting Alliance “There Will Be Blood” in Miami. A Cuban Olympic judo competitor, Lombard is undefeated in his last eleven bouts and signed with EliteXC but never competed for the promotion before it folded in late-2008. Vila is a bronze medal winning Cuban Olympic wrestler who remains undefeated in professional competition, most-recently dispatching Ian Wolf in just 35-seconds at the December MFA event.
PFC has also announced that Erin Toughill, who appeared as “Steel” on the second season of American Gladiators, will be in action at the event against Adrienna Jenkins.
