I guess Bobby Lashley is serious about this cage-fighting stuff after all. MMA Mania reports that the former WWE star has signed with Canada’s Maximum Fighting Championship promotion, and will appear at their "Hard Knocks" event (May 15th, Edmonton) a month before he collides with Bob Sapp in Biloxi. Lash will be taking on Mike Cook, a Frank Shamrock-trained heavyweight who’s either 6-3 or 5-5, depending on who you ask. Will Cook further expose Lashley as a work-in-progress, or will Lashley redeem himself after his unsatisfying performance against Jason Guida? "Hard Knocks" will be broadcast live in North America on HDNet, and will feature UFC vets Marvin Eastman, David Heath, and Trevor Prangley.

MMA Mania also reveals that the June 27th Lashley vs. Sapp pay-per-view event has been given the official name of "Unarmed Combat." Din Thomas is expected to be on the card (along with Tom Atencio), and Lashley’s fight nickname is now "The Dominator." Yawn. Come on guys, I think we can do better than that…

lol the dominator, that was the name of his signature move when he was in WWE.

Totally agree with anonymous about the head being too tiny for his body making him look like a goomba!

Yo', hold on a minute, the contract is not even sighned by Sapp yet, and may not be. K-1 has offered Sapp a contract with a no-compete clause in the last 10 hrs.

Bobby "Black Lesnar" Lashley

The reason he is now nicknamed the "The Dominator" is because that was his finishing move while in the WWE, a running front slam. I really hope he gets to bust out one of those in a fight one day.

"The DiscomBOBulator" Lashley.
That Guy Over There- April 24, 2009 at 8:37 am
Can we just call him "Black Lesnar"? However, at least the guy has the smarts to build himself up slowly with many small fights which might work out for him in the long-run: also he didn't tattoo a penis on his chest, that helps too.
