Bobby Lashley, the former WWE champion turned MMA fighter, is currently in talks with Strikeforce to compete for the San Jose-based organization, FanHouse has learned.

The MMA rookie hasn't fought since his June 27 victory over Bob Sapp on the Prize Fight Promotions "Ultimate Chaos" pay-per-view, and still has two fights left on his contract with that organization. However, talks have heated up over the last few weeks with Strikeforce about Lashley making his debut on the Nov. 7 CBS show, headlined by Fedor Emelianenko vs. Brett Rogers. As of Thursday morning, though, no deal has been signed.

Actually, another report says Lashley isn't talking to SF. Prize Fight Promotions, who he's under contract to, is doing the talking and trying to transfer his deal to SF. They keep delaying a proposed Lashley-Ron Waterman fight.

Lashley's next bout will be against Samoa Joe at Bound for Glory on October 18.

Plenty of good seats still available.
