Former World Wrestling Enterinament performer and amateur wrestler Bobby Lashley has officially signed with American Top Team and Miami-based First Round Management.
According to the ATT website:
“Bobby started training with us a week ago and decided this is where he needed to be to take the next step in his burgeoning MMA career. Bobby comes to us with a great background in amateur wrestling where he was a multiple NAIA National Wrestling Champion. Of course, most people know of him because of his time spent with the pro wrestling organization WWE and ECW.”
A separate statement from First Round Management says, “Lashley is expected to make his professional Mixed Martial Arts debut in December of this year and will look to maintain a rigorous fight schedule in 2009 under the auspices of the American Fight League.”
