Although it isn't yet official, Strikeforce is expected to add Bobby Lashley to the upcoming April 17 event in Nashville. No opponent named yet but that could be determined next week. Lashley likely will be in a prelim fight but with a 4th fight planned to air tape-delayed on CBS that night (the event has 3 title fights scheduled), it's likely that prelim will feature Lashley.

Can Strikeforce get its act together and get some matches signed before the absolute last minute?

It's unfair to the ticket buyers, the fighters and Me!

I havent got any problems with Lashley, but have heard he has a weak chin.
If i was strikeforce i'd keep doing what there doing now, slowly lower him in the deep end I know he may be in rumours of a fight but Antonio Silva would be a nice opponent next

A month away with only 3 fights signed is not a good sign

it's already a great card. how is it unfair to you or the ticket buyers to add more fights?

I can see it being "unfair" to the fighters but they can pass on the fight if they don't think they have enough time to get ready.

They need to give him a tougher opponent. It is time to test him out a little. I am still skeptical about Lashley. He could not finish Jason Guida. I think his next opponent should be a bit of a test for him. We need to see what Bobby Lashley is all about. At this point I think he is "iffy" at best.
