Bobby Lashley is ready to rumble again.
The MMA fighter and former WWE superstar will return to the octagon to take on Chad "The Grave Digger" Griggs at Strikeforce: Houston on Aug. 21, WEEI.com reports.
Lashley, who enters the fight with an undefeated MMA record of 5-0, has not fought in eight months due to scheduling issues and injuries. In his last fight, Lashley defeated Wes Sims via a first-round TKO on Jan. 30.
Griggs, a member of the Tucson, Ariz. fire department and a former member of the International Fight League (IFL), has been impressive despite not facing top-notch talent. He enters with an 8-1 overall MMA record.
Like Lashley, though, Griggs also has experienced a layoff from the sport and will be competing for the first time in over a year.
Strikeforce: Houston will take place at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, and the main event will feature light-heavyweight champion "King Mo" Lawal taking on Rafael "Feijao" Cavalante.
