Professional wrestler Bobby Lashley is likely to return to MMA action in Strikeforce later this year, as the heavyweight prospect and promotion are close to finalizing a multi-fight deal, according to Five Knuckles.
If signed, Lashley is expected to debut against Ron Waterman, possibly on Strikeforce’s November 7 CBS-televised card or a planned December event.
Lashley (4-0), a former WWE wrestler who now wrestles for TNA, made his MMA debut in late-2008 with a first-round TKO of Joshua Franklin and has pushed his record to 4-0 in 2009 with wins over Jason Guida, Mike Cook, and Bob Sapp.
Waterman (16-6-2), who holds notable wins over Ricco Rodriguez and Kevin Randleman, is 3-1 in his last 4 fights.
