    I saw this coming when he returned to TNA, and I'm actually kind of excited for it.

    Lashley is a decent fighter, but the fact that an active pro wrestling champion is going to be participating in a nationally televised MMA fight is pretty cool.

    It also helps that Bellator is stacking this card because the UFC decided to hold a card on the same night at a venue just 20 minutes away from where Bellator will be.

    But on the same thing if Bobby gets hurt while being champion it's not going to help TNA any.

    I just know while being TNA champ he'll get KO'd in the 1st round or something.

    Just because TNA.

    Will UFC send Rousey to Bellator in a tank?

    Yes. And she will be joined by several fighters attempting to drive into the Mohegan Sun Casino after they reveal Bellator gives away free tickets (after Dana White does his one of his ticket giveaways on Twitter).

    The guy he's fighting is an MMA equivalent of a jobber. I've seen him fight a few times in Bellator, and he's a stocky dude who fights well above his weight class. Lashley is more than good enough to beat the guy.

    this just keeps popping into my head when I think about the risk TNA is taking

    no, they will get WWE's champion, John Cena, on the card (like he will lose it at battleground).

    TNA World Champ wins MMA Fight on Spike tonight

    Post by Joe5150 on Fri Sep 05, 2014 9:03 pm

    TNA Champion Bobby Lashley defeated Josh Burns in the second round of Friday's Bellator 123 event that was broadcast on Spike TV. Lashley took Burns down early in round one and was unable to put him away with a few submission hold attempts, but he did bloody him with several punches and elbows.

    His TNA Title reign and TNA in general was talked about. They were co-promoting.

    TNA's Bobby Lashley will face undefeated Karl Etherington on Bellator's 10/24 show in Wichita, KS.

    Lashley, the former TNA champion, has a dual promotion contract and is coming off a second round stoppage of Josh Burns on 9/5.

    The four match TV card was announced today headlined by Emanuel Newton defending the light heavyweight title against Linton Vassell, winner of three Bellator fights in a row.

    Marloes Coenen makes her Bellator debut in the first woman's fight for the promotion since moving to Spike TV, facing Annalisa Bucci.

    There was a possibility of him being on the Tito vs. Bonnar card in November, but Lashley ended up on the October 24 card because Bellator needs name to fill their other shows this season.

    Looks like him continuing to do this dual Pro Wrestling/MMA career will pay off for him with TNA's status being uncertain for the next year.
