Had no idea that on this card, they will also show Lashley vs Shamrock on there as well. Looks like Lashley is trying to follow in Lesnar's footsteps, as he is a former WWE wrestler for anybody that doesn't know.
But it's interesting, and maybe not a bad idea.
Dang Fitz...where you been? You just realized that?
I think you should be punished for not reading the front page more often. We need a chalk board so you should have to write 1000 times, "I PROMISE TO READ THE FRONT PAGE MORE OFTEN. I PROMISE TO READ THE FRONT PAGE MORE OFTEN. I PROMISE TO READ THE FRONT PAGE MORE OFTEN. I PROMISE TO READ THE FRONT PAGE MORE OFTEN."
Just messin' with ya.
In all seriousness, I think it's a GREAT idea for Roy Jones Jr. because, quite frankly, barely anyone was going to buy a joke of a PPV headlined by Jones vs. Sheika. However, even before Ken Shamrock was solidified as his opponent, Bobby Lashley's presence on the card automatically increases the buys from the WWE junkies as well as the MMA heads who are curious to see just how well Lashley can do in the sport (this is only his 2nd pro fight). Furthermore, now that Shamrock is his opponent, that adds just a few more buys from those curious MMA junkies.
I know for me, the card went from, "Eh...who cares...I'll skip that one" to, "Damn it...now I gotta watch it just so I can see Lashley thump on Shamrock."
