Bellator MMA News: Bobby Lashley gets a new opponent for 6/19 event

James Thompson, scheduled to face TNA's (and Bellator's) Bobby Lashey at the next big Bellator show on June 19th in St. Louis, has pulled out due to injury.

The fight was a rematch of their 2012 bout in India, which Thompson won via decision.

Lashley will now face Dan Charles, a 9-2 heavyweight who has won his last two Bellator fights. The new matchup will be part of the same event headlined by Kimbo Slice vs. Ken Shamrock.
