During a recent question and answer session with fans, Bobby Lashley was asked about a potential title shot in MMA. He stated that he was probably two more victories away from Bellator giving him a shot at the heavyweight championship. Lashley felt that the current champion might actually be dropping the belt for whatever reasons, so he has no idea who he would be facing when the opportunity comes around.

It was no secret that name value was one of the biggest reasons why Bellator signed Bobby Lashley to a contract. In addition to being a physically gifted human being, Lashley also brought the additional appeal of being a marketing asset. To promote the upcoming Bellator 145 event, the promotion has spent a good amount of money on purchasing a huge ad in Times Square. Lashley was the chosen fighter used for the ad.

Bobby Lashley is getting a chance to avenge a previous loss in MMA. Bellator has revealed that he is going to be facing James Thompson in a rematch on June 19. The event will take place in St Louis. Since that is only two months away, you can expect Lashley to scale back his commitment to TNA, so that he can start training full time. Fortunately for him, the front office is very supportive of his mixed martial arts career.
