In the aftermath of his Strikeforce fight, the rough night continued for Bobby Lashley in the bowels of the Toyota Center. The former WWE star, who suffered his first career loss in MMA, and was taken from the Houston arena on a stretcher (Video here).
The loss was part beatdown, part mental breakdown due to exhaustion. The thickly-muscled 249-pound monster was wiped out just minutes into his fight against Chad Griggs. Griggs (9-1) took advantage of a shaky stand-up by the referee and pounded away at Lashley while the formerly unbeaten MMA prospect held on for dear life against the cage.
Lashley (5-1) suffered a nasty cut under his left eye in the first round and couldn't take advantage of scoring the mount position in the second.
