WWE TNT Strikeforce Heavyweight Bobby Lashley

Former WWE star Bobby Lashley (Pictured) will headline “Super Fight League 3” opposite James Thompson. The May 6th event takes place inside IGI Stadium in New Delhi, India.

Just like with the upstart mixed martial arts promotion’s last event, fans can stream the freebie fight card live on SFL’s YouTube channel.

Since parting ways with Strikeforce following a disappointing August 2010 loss to Chad Griggs, Lashley has gone on to collect two consecutive wins in smaller organizations en route to capturing the Shark Fight heavyweight title.

The American Top Team product owns a respectable 7-1 professional MMA record.

To say Thompson has had a roller coaster career would be an understatement. After winning 12 of his first 14 bouts, the veteran went on to drop 12 of his next 15 scraps. “The Colossus” will be riding a two-fight winning streak (including 1 NC) into his second fight for SFL.

Here are the athletes slated to appear in the show:

Lena Ovchynnikova vs. Joanne Calderwood

Doug Marshall vs. Zelg Galesic

Trevor Prangley vs. Baga Agaev
