March Badness to feature Bobby Lashley against Ken Shamrock on March 21
By: James Iannotti
Former WWE superstar Bobby Lashley’s opponent for “March Badness” — a hybrid mixed martial arts and boxing event being put on by former boxing champion Roy Jones Jr. — will be none other than UFC Hall-of-Famer Ken Shamrock (27-13-2), according to BloodyElbow.com.

The pay-per-view (PPV) event will take place at the Pensacola Civic Center in Pensacola, Fla., on March 21.

Lashley is an absolute monster, weighing in right around the 265-pound heavyweight limit for his fights. He destroyed Joshua Franklin in under a minute during his MMA debut last December with devastating takedowns and a ground-and-pound that opened up a nasty fight ending gash on Franklin’s head.

One of the newest members of the prestigious American Top Team, Lashley has a rare blend of size, freakish athleticism and blazing quickness. He’s going to be a handful for anybody in a fight, let alone a 45-year-old man who’s lost 8 of his last 11 contests and hasn’t beaten a decent heavyweight since submitting Bas Rutten nearly 14 years ago.

“The World’s Most Dangerous Man” managed to win his most recent fight a couple of weeks ago over Ross Clifton at WarGods: “The Valentine’s Eve Massacre;” however Ross Clifton isn’t exactly comparable to a Goliath like Bobby Lashley.

The truth is, this is probably a more difficult match-up for Shamrock than even Kimbo Slice was when they were scheduled to lock horns last October, simply because of Lashley’s versatility as a decorated amateur wrestler and his overall explosiveness.

Shamrock pulled out of that scheduled match with Slice on fight night due to a cut sustained in warm-ups, and has since been accused by younger brother Frank of cutting himself to get out of the fight.

Regardless of whether or not that’s true, the fact is that Shamrock hasn’t seen action inside a cage or ring against a guy as big and as dangerous as Lashley in a long time. This one could get ugly.

Also expected to be in action is the man who put an end to the Kimbo Slice hype train last October with a 14-second technical knockout, Seth Petruzelli. He’ll lock horns with ex-WEC 205 pound champion Doug “The Rhino” Marshall. Top heavyweights Roy “Big Country” Nelson and Jeff “The Snowman” Monson will also collide in a featured MMA fight as well.

The boxing portion of the event will be headlined by Roy Jones Jr. taking on Omar Sheika.

Hahaha, awesome! Bobby is going to destroy Ken. Guess that postpones Ken/Frank another 5yrs until Ken can get another win!

:laugh: I have had 1 wreck, when I was 17. Not my fault. Only ever got 2 tickets, 1 for speeding (90 in a 55 :scared0011: ) and one for exhibition of acceleration...I was mad at the guy I was dating so I raced off and made the tires squeal. Got caught by a cop. I played the whole "girl driving a stick" card and the officer was nice enough to go to court with me and testify on my behalf. That ticket was dismissed. I haven't had a ticket at all since I was 18.

~AmyI've been hit twice: once by a little whiny emo brat in a purple Saturn rear-ended my while I was waiting to make a left turn, the other when a guy ran a stop sign & T-boned me. The only other time I've been in trouble is when I got busted for doing 89 in 65. Actually, I was doing more like 95-100, but the officer felt bad for me. It was 2am, & was on the way home from my girlfriend's place & I had work at 8:30. I told him I was tired & just try to go home, so he gave me a break on the speed. Had he put it over 90, it would have been reckelss endangerment, a felony charge.

I couldn't talk my way out of my one speeding ticket. It was a state officer in TX and those guys are not able to be manipulated. City/town cops....easy. :wink: My wreck totaled my mom's car. I got a really nasty bruise from the airbag. That was my worst injury.

~AmyThe funny thing is that I wasn't even trying to talk my way out of it. He asked me why I was going so fast & I jsut told him I was exhausted & trying to get home so I could sleep a bit before work. He was a nice guy & made the decision on his own.

Guys do better to just tell the truth and be honest with the cops. Girls have wiggle room. And tears. And boobs. :laugh:

I think it's awesome that they are going to show a mixture of Boxing and MMA. It's also great to see Roy Jones back in the ring and fighting at home in Pensacola.

I think Lashley is way too strong for Shamrock, but it is still interesting to watch.

I hope that somehow Shamrock manages a good win! Or at least makes a real good showing. As for Nelsen vs the Commie well I hope Big Country wins!
