Lashley, Lombard scratched from PFC: Best of Both Worlds
American Top Team Fighters Bobby Lashley (1-0) and Hector Lombard (17-2-1) have been forced to withdraw from their planned bouts at the Palace Fighting Championship's upcoming hybrid MMA/boxing card, "Best of Both Worlds." MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today learned of the pair's departures from sources close to the event. "PFC: Best of Both Worlds" is scheduled for Feb. 6 at the Tachi Palace Hotel & Casino in Lemoore, Calif. Lashley was forced off the card due to an ankle ligament injury suffered in a recent training session. The extent of the injury and potential layoff for recovery is unknown at this time. The heavyweight prospect and former collegiate wrestling champion was slated to face fellow undefeated up-and-comer Mike Hayes. Lashley made his MMA debut in December 2008 with a 41-second TKO win over fellow first-time-fighter Joshua Franklin. A replacement for the former professional wrestler has not yet been named. Lombard had long been considered for the event, though his participation was never officially announced by the organization. The former Cuban judoka has been fighting professionally since 2004 and was looking to make his long-awaited U.S. debut. The PRIDE, DEEP and SpiritMC veteran will pass on the Feb. 6 date in favor of a previously signed April appearance for Bellator Fighting Championships, a debuting promotion slated for broadcast on ESPN Deportes.

Regardless of the Fate of Elite XC, King of the Cage Survives
One of the worst fall outs from the Elite XC implosion was the negative impact on the mid-sized promotions that had been purchased by the doomed organization. One of the orgs effected was Terry Trebilcock's King of the Cage. KOTC provided an early stage for stars such as Rampage Jackson, Rashad Evans, Diego Sanchez, Keith Jardine, Paul Buentello and Mac Danzig. I'm happy to see that they're back up and running.
