By FCF Staff
Bellator has announced that a heavyweight fight between James Thompson and Bobby Lashley has been rebooked for June 19th. The fight will be part of Bellator 138, which will be hosted by the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri.
Thompson and Lashley were scheduled to fight in February, but an injury to the latter forced the bout to be postponed.

The American Lashley (12-2), meanwhile, stopped Karl Etherington in October and has won five in a row.
Bellator 138 will be headlined by a heavyweight fight between Kimbo Slice and Ken Shamrock. The main card will be broadcast on SPIKE.
