Report: Jason Guida in for suspended Ken Shamrock at "March Badness" (http://mmajunkie.com/news/14259/report-jason-guida-in-for-suspended-ken-shamrock-at-march-badness.mma)

With Ken Shamrock's recent suspension by the California State Athletic Commission for a failed drug test, the hybrid boxing/MMA event "March Badness" was left with a hole in the evening's MMA main event.

According to a new report from VERSUS.com, that void has been filled by former "TUF" cast member Jason Guida (17-19), who will now take on Bobby Lashley (1-0).

The event, promoted by the event's boxing headliner Roy Jones Jr. and his Square Ring Promotions company, takes place at the Pensacola Civic Center in Florida on March 21 and airs on pay-per-view.

Brother of UFC lightweight Clay Guida, heavyweight Jason Guida is perhaps best known for his short-lived stint on "The Ultimate Fighter 8." Guida was unable to make weight for his preliminary bout and was replaced for ever fighting on the program.

Guida dropped all three of his 2008 contests, and is just 3-7 in his past 10 bouts.

Lashley, a two-time NAIA national wrestling champion who wrestled with the WWE from 2005 to 2008, made his MMA debut in December. There, the American Top Team product scored a swift 41-second TKO of Joshua Franklin.

In the only other formally announced MMA contest, former top UFC heavyweight contender Jeff Monson (27-8) takes on IFL heavyweight champion Roy "Big Country" Nelson (13-3).

On the boxing portion of the card, Jones Jr. (52-5), an eight-time world champion and former Olympian, takes on Omar Sheika (27-8) in a light-heavyweight contest.

I hope that Bobby Lashley FLATTENS Jason Guida.
