Lashley, Monson Win at March Badness

By:

Bobby LashleyThere was bad blood between Jason Guida and Bobby Lashley at the pre-fight press conference.  Jason Guida, a late replacement for the suspended Ken Shamrock, repeatedly taunted Bobby Lashley.  Lashley had the last laugh, however.  At March Badness last night, Lashley beat Guida and took home a Unanimous Decision.  Lashley, who was looking to finish his taunter, got overly aggressive one takedown and almost got submitted by a Guillotine in the third round.  After a half minute, Lashley got out of the Guillotine to claim the win.

Jeff Monson defeated Roy Nelson in a very close fight that could have went either way.  Surprisingly, Nelson appeared to win the ground game against the grappling star – getting full mount in the first round and taking Monson down several times.  Monson, however, won the standup and landed knees successfully against Big Country to win a Unanimous 29-28 decision.

In other MMA action, Din Thomas knocked out Gabe Lemley with a knee in this Featherweight matchup.  Dennis Hallman submitted Danny Ruiz via Rear Naked Choke in the first round.

The event was a hybrid MMA and boxing event.  In boxing action, Roy Jones Jr. defeated Omar Sheika in one round as the referee stopped the bout.  BJ Flores won a unanimous decision over Jose Luis Herrera.
