Lashley (4-0) signed a multi-year agreement, which will officially start when he makes his Strikeforce debut at BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Fla. on Jan. 30.

Im looking forward to fighting for Strikeforce and challenging myself by taking on some of the top heavyweights in MMA, said Lashley.

Lashley is a former collegiate wrestler at Missouri Valley College and served in the U.S. army. At 6-foot-3 and 250 pounds, hell be one of the larger fighters of the heavyweight division.

He made his professional debut in the sport on Dec. 13, 2008 with a 41-second TKO over Joshua Franklin. He then defeated Jason Guida, brother of UFC fighter Clay Guida, by unanimous decision, followed by back-to-back submissions in the first round of his next two fights.

Naaa how bout some pics of you guys parting it up lol.

I think strikeforce is doing a good job bringing fighters into the Org. People see Lesner and how Bobby is 4-0 so you know more people will be curious if he can climb to the Lesner level.

Plus now they got Noons, so a bunch of peeps will tune in to watch him get his face smashed in. Good times are a coming. :punch:
