Bobby Lashley, former WWE heavyweight champion and Strikeforce fighter, has withdrawn from his upcoming bout at Titan Fighting Championship 19 against Eddie Sanchez. Titan FC CEO Joe Kelly cited personal reasons for Lashley's decision to pull out. He also indicated that Lashley would instead appear on Titan's next card on August 26 in Kansas City.

Titan Fighting Championship 19 will now feature lightweights James Krause and Clay French in the main event. That card takes place July 29 in Kansas City, Kansas.

Lashley began his career with a 4-0 record, including a win over Bob Sapp, before signing with Strikeforce, where he stopped Wes Sims in two minutes in his debut. Chad Griggs upset him in his next fight, as Lashley tired himself out to the point of exhaustion after winning the first round. Strikeforce dropped Lashley following the loss. He emerged with a disappointing win over John Ott at Titan Fighting Championship 17.

Eddie Sanchez is most known for being the body in the cage during Mirko Filipovic's UFC debut.
