They're persistent, I'll give them that.

Super Fight League (SFL) is back with its third offering, featuring a headlining bout that pits former Strikeforce heavyweight attraction Bobby Lashley against British bruiser James Thompson on May 6, 2012 from the IGI Stadium in New Delhi, India.

As with the first two events, Super Fight League 3 will air LIVE and FREE via YouTube.

After getting kicked out of Strikeforce by heavyweight "Grave Digger" Chad Griggs, Lashley (7-1) has won back-to-back fights over John Ott and Karl Knothe at Titan Fighting Championship 17 and Shark Fights 21, respectively.

Thompson is also the winner of two straight (with one no contest), having canned Bob Sapp (leg injury) at SFL 1 shortly after choking out Polish strongman Mariusz Pudzianowski at KSW 16.

Here's the current SFL 3 fight card and line up:

Main Event:

265 lbs.: Bobby Lashley vs. James Thompson

Main Card (YouTube):

205 lbs.: Trevor Prangley vs. Baga Agaev
185 lbs.: Doug Marshall vs. Zelg Galesic
