Bobby Lashley, a former collegiate and professional wrestler who recently made his MMA debut, will square off with veteran Ken Shamrock on the undercard of the MMA-boxing hybrid event “March Badness,” which takes place on March 21st in Pensacola, Pensacola.
Bloody Elbow was the first to report the news earlier this evening and additional outlets have since confirmed that the heavyweight matchup has indeed been booked.
Boxers Roy Jones Jr. and Omar Sheika will square off in the event’s headliner with BJ Flores also scheduled to be in action on the boxing portion of the card. The MMA lineup also features Seth Petruzelli, who was last seen defeating Kimbo Slice in November, against former WEC title-holder Doug Marshall as well as former IFL heavyweight champion Roy Nelson facing UFC veteran Jeff Monson.
Lashley successfully made his MMA debut in December with a first-round TKO of Joshua Franklin, opening up a deep cut on Franklin’s face that forced the bout to be halted just 41-seconds into the opening round.
Shamrock earned his first victory in nearly five years when he submitted super heavyweight Ross Clifton last month.
