    Former WWE and collegiate wrestling superstar Bobby Lashley has officially decided to train at T'sKO in Denver, Co. Sources close to the Loveland, Co. based fighter recently informed FiveKnuckles.com of the decision.

    T'sKO is home to an impressive list of established and rising MMA stars including Nate Marquardt, Shane Carwin, Alvin Robinson, Duane Ludwig, and Brendan Schaub. It also serves as a home away from home for the famed "Jackson Camp" who congregates on the gym to help teammates Nate Marquardt and Shane Carwin train for upcoming fights.

    Famed MMA trainer Greg Jackson and fighters such as Georges St. Pierre, Rashad Evans and Keith Jardine routinely come through to train, which is said to have made Lashley's decision to train there a "no brainer".

    Undisclosed individuals present at Lashley's initial training sessions report that Lashley has a very good wrestling base but that the former 2-time NAIA Collegiate National Wrestling Champion is still "very raw" but has a great attitude and will "fit in well".

    UFC heavyweight star Shane Carwin, who rolled with Lashley at the training session, concurs.

    "He is a very strong and competitive athlete," Carwin wrote in a recent Myspace post. "He is still green (as we all are) but I see him making great strides in this sport. For being such a superstar he seemed very grounded and eager to learn. If I caught him in a submission he wanted to learn how I did it, what he should have done differently to avoid it. His desire to learn and evolve will be the true credit to his success as an MMA fighter."

    Lashley is 2-0 in his professional MMA career with wins over Joshua Franklin and Jason Guida respectively. He's set to face Mike Cook at MFC 21: Hard Knocks on May 15 and then Bob Sapp later this summer at a PFP: Unarmed Combat event.

    Good move for Lashley.

    He could become scary very quickly.

    He could become a powerhouse no doubt. Its nice now that MMA money is big enough to attract some raw talent and potential.
