TNA World Heavyweight champion Bobby Lashley improved his MMA record to 11-2 after defeating Josh Burns yesterday at Bellator 123 in Uncasville, Connecticut.

Lashley finished off his opponent via submission with a rear naked choke at 3:54 of round 2. This was Lashley’s Bellator debut and it was made possible thanks to the close working relationship between Bellator, TNA, and Spike TV.

Lashley’s last mixed martial arts fight was almost a year ago, in November 2013, winning via a unanimous decision after going all five rounds.
