Last Saturday saw Mirko Cro Cop avenge his loss to Gabriel Gonzaga and now Bobby Lashley will get his chance at revenge against James Thompson, the man who gave him his second career loss. The heavyweight battle has been added to Bellator 138 which will be headlined by Ken Shamrock and Kimbo Slice.
Lashley and Thompson first met back in 2012 in the Super Fight League where Thompson won the fight via a unanimous decision. Lashley has put together a five fight win streak since the loss to Thompson including going 2-0 in Bellator MMA. Thompson has not been as active as he has only fought twice since the meeting with Lashley back in 2012.
Bellator 138 will take place on June 19 live from the Scottrade Center in St. Louis and will air live on Spike TV. Also scheduled to be on the card is former lightweight champion Michael Chandler, who is looking to end his three fight losing streak as he goes up against Derek Campos.
