Impact Wrestling star Bobby Lashley spoke with MMAjunkie about his MMA career and more. Here are the highlights.
On wanting a fight with Fedor Emelianenko: “I think every heavyweight wants to get the opportunity to fight Fedor (Emelianenko) before he completely retires. That was one thing that I was hoping to get early on. I have all the respect for Matt Mitrione; I think Mitrione is an incredible person. I like that fight with Fedor, but I know they’re still going to give Mitrione the opportunity to fight him. After he fights him, hopefully they open the doors for me.”
On a fight with Brock Lesnar: “I think it’s shut. I would like to say it’s not shut, but I think it’s shut. I think the WWE is taking really good care of him right now, which they should, because he’s a huge star for them. If they’re taking care of him there’s no real reason for him to keep stepping back over. He made a huge paycheck on his last, so I don’t think he even wants to come back and do anything anymore.”
