"From Yohan Banks to Jimmy Ambriz , it seems Strikeforce has finally found a worthy opponent for unbeaten heavyweight prospect Bobby Lashley . MMAFrenzy reported that UFC veteran Wes "A-Whole Show" Sims will step up on short notice to fight the NCAA wrestling standout on January 30 in Miami."

Yeah Wes is getting GNPed brutally IMO. Not really a good last minute replacement pick IMO, should have stuck with the Titan.

Wes brings a shred of...I dunno decency to this fight. Maybe? I dunno I'd like to see bobbo face someone with a little name value.

I think that's why this works for Strikeforce.

Realistically, Jimmy Ambriz has just as good a shot at defeating Lashley as Wes Sims does, but Sims comes with The Ultimate Fighter stint and UFC fights under his belt, which adds a little, although not much, name recognition to a fight Strikeforce obviously wants Lashley to win.

Lashley losing would be a very big deal and probably see his stock fall dramatically.

I doubt Lashley will lose this match, which sucks cause I like Sims a lot.

Wes stands zero chance, ZERO.

Sims is hilarious though, not much of a scrapper.

Wes "A-Whole Show" Sims



That's a great nickname for him; obviously the one meaning of it fits better than the other.

I'm really starting to wonder when they are going to have Bobby Lashley face some real competition.
