Bobby Lashley vs. James Thompson Announced for Super Fight League 3

Esther Lin, Strikeforce

Super Fight League has announced its headliner for its upcoming third offering, as the promotion has slotted Bobby Lashley against James Thompson to showcase in the May 6 event.

The 35-year-old Lashley has won two in a row since losing a memorable bout to Chad Griggs in August 2010. A former pro wrestler in the WWE, Lashley went 1-1 in Strikeforce before earning a pair of wins. In his most recent fight, he submitted Karl Knothe with a keylock to capture the Shark Fights heavyweight title and improve to 7-1.

Meanwhile, Thompson is fresh off his win over Bob Sapp at Super Fight League 1, a bout in which Sapp tapped out after suffering an apparent leg injury. Thompson, a PRIDE and EliteXC veteran, is 17-14 with 1 no contest in his career.

Super Fight League also announced a series of other fights for the show. Among them were a light-heavyweight fight with veteran Trevor Prangley taking on Baga Agaev, Doug Marshall vs. Zelg Galesic in a middleweight bout, and a women's 125-pound scrap between Lena Ovchynnikova and Joanne Calderwood.

The event will air live and free on SFL's YouTube channel. It takes place from the Indira Gandhi Arena in New Dehli, India.
