A pair of notables picked up wins this weekend during Global Warrior Challenge’s “British Invasion” pay-per-view from Kansas City.
Bobby Lashley scored a first round submission victory over Matt Larson in just over a minute, locking in a rear-naked choke. Andre Winner and Kendall Grove also earned wins, including a first round stoppage via TKO by Grove.
The win was the second in June for Lashley, who also stopped Kevin Asplund earlier this month.
“I couldn’t be prouder of our GWC athletes,” said GWC promtoer Robert Beene. “They put on such a great show. I can’t wait to see them fight again. What an exciting night.”
