Bobby Lashley vs. Mark Martinez at Shark Fights 21 in Lubbock, Texas on Nov. 11th

Bobby Lashley has yet another change in opponent for his Shark Fights 21 heavyweight title bout fight in Lubbock, Texas on November 11th, this time relative unknown, Mark Martinez stepping up on less than one weeks notice.

Shark Fights CEO Bud Brutsman speaking to MMAJUnkie, said:

“As a Shark Fights veteran, we’re happy that Mark is getting a shot at the title.”

Lashley picked up a lacklustre unanimous decision win over John Ott on the Titan Fighting Championship 17 card last March. Prior to that he’d looked terrible against Chad Griggs inside the Strikeforce cage. Martinez is 4-1 overall in his mixed martial arts career and is riding a four-fight winning streak. He most recently knocked out Josh Luna at King of the Cage in April.
