The worlds of mixed martial arts and professional wrestling will be colliding in a major way in 2019 as Ken Shamrock is scheduled to take on “Filthy” Tom Lawlor at the end of January. The headline bout will take place under the banner of Ultimate Bar Brawl on January 31st in Atlanta. Ticket information has yet to be posted, but also scheduled on the card is Penelope Ford vs. ODB.

“The World’s Most Dangerous Man” returned to the squared circle back in November under Austrailia’s Battle Championship Wrestling as he defeated Gabriel Wolfe via submission and then defeated him a second time in the night winning the promotion’s tag team titles with Carlo Cannon.

Lawlor has been a stalwart in Major League Wrestling as he’s one of the company’s biggest stars. He recently took on Simon Grimm in a “No Holds Barred” match on an episode of Fusion which you can witness below:

For over a month “Filthy” Tom Lawlor has waited for his shot at Simon Gotch after the Team Filthy turncoat betrayed Lawlor in Chicago. Tonight Lawlor finally gets his opportunity to get the snitch Simon Gotch in the ring.

For the first time ever MLW will present a No Holds Barred fight where there are no ropes, no rules, no rounds with the winner defeating his adversary by either knockout or submission. See Lawlor vs. Gotch on beIN SPORTS tonight! Other matches leading up to the main event:
