A rumored bout between Bobby Lashley and Don Frye will not take place, according to Lashley’s agent “Method”, who posted on Monday in the MMAFrenzy.com Forums that reports of the matchup are “not true” and that the heavyweight prospect’s next fight will be announced in the coming weeks.
Method says one name you can cross off the list of potential opponents is Strikeforce heavyweight contender Brett Rogers, with an opponent for Lashley’s next fight already determined but not yet been finalized.
The former professional wrestler and amateur and NAIA wrestling champion Lashley (4-0) successfully made the jump to mixed martial arts last year with a first-round TKO (cut) of Joshua Franklin. He followed up his MMA debut victory with wins over Jason Guida and Mike Cook, before scoring a first-round submission (due to strikes) of Bob Sapp on June 27.
Lashley recently announced that he intends to next fight in September.
