One loss will not define former WWE superstar Bobby Lashley’s fight career.
Lashley will headline Titan Fighting Championship 17 on March 25 at the Historic Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kansas. Titan Fighting CEO Joe Kelly made the news official late Thursday night.
Lashley will be competing for the first time since a Strikeforce event on Aug. 21, 2010. His return to the cage on March 25 will come against M-1 Challenge veteran James Jack.
The Lashley vs. Jack main event joins the previously announced bout between Phil Baroni and Nick Nolte as the first two contests officially announced for the event’s telecast on HDNet.
Lashley (5-1) is coming off of a loss to Chad Griggs at Strikeforce: Houston. He had been on the fast track in the promotion’s heavyweight division, but Griggs stole his thunder.
He tries to right the ship against the six-foot-one, 265-pound Jack, who is 5-4-1.
