According to MMA Junkie Darrill Schoonover is out of Shark Fights 21 main event! Who’s gonna rep Texas and fill this main event slot??
“Darrill Schoonover out at Shark Fights 21, Bobby Lashley awaits new opponent“
A shoulder injury has forced Shark Fights heavyweight champ Darrill Schoonover (11-5) to withdraw from a fight with Bobby Lashley (6-1) in the headliner of Shark Fights 21.
Sources close to the event today broke the news to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) and said the search for a replacement is underway. Additionally, a source said the headliner is expected to remain a title fight, though details on the bout’s status could not be confirmed.
Shark Fights 21 takes place Nov. 11 at Fair Park Coliseum in Lubbock, Texas. The event airs via delay on FUEL TV on Dec. 23.
Lashley, who recently signed a three-fight deal with Shark Fights, hasn’t fought since a decision victory over John Ott at Titan Fighting Championships 17 in March. The victory followed his first and only career loss: a second-round TKO (via retirement) to Chad Griggs at “Strikeforce: Houston.”
Schoonover, who’s perhaps best known as a cast member on “The Ultimate Fighter 10,” recently snapped a five-fight losing skid with a first-round TKO victory over Adam Padilla at a regional show in Texas. All 11 of wins have come via stoppage (six via knockout and five via submission).
A replacement is expected to be announced shortly. Check back with MMAjunkie.com for updates as they become available.
