Via Rajah, Bobby Lashley makes his debut on the January card from Florida. It will be on Showtime. Also on the card is the debut of Nick Diaz (formerly of UFC), and Herschel Walker (Formerly of football) as well as a fight with "cyborg" Santos.
Hershel Walker is just slightly younger than me. I just looked him up, he's 47. Pieman for MMA! He's a kid compared to me and the Doc (who is officially elderly).
We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

Any hype I had for Lashley died after the Jason Guida fight. Guida's an 18-21-0-2 heavyweight who's been submitted, dominated and knocked out cold by middleweights on numerous occasions, and not only could Lashley not really damage him, Guida had him in serious trouble on several occasions.
If he keeps learning, then grand, but thus far he hasn't demonstrated much except "I am big."
Also, I gotta say: I like wrestling, I like MMA, but someone actively doing both at the same time makes me feel weird.
This makes tons of sense and it's about time for the merge. UFC is the largest MMA organization in the world and it was kind of crazy that they operated this weird little side brand that had the lighter weight classes.
