Bobby Lashley (4-0 MMA) is scheduled to fight at the next Strikeforce event in Miami, but hes already having thoughts of a future bout with “The Last Emporer” Fedor Emelianenko.
However for the Miami event Lashley will be making his Strikeforce debut on the undercard portion of the night which may not be aired on TV. This is pretty puzzleing to me given his fan base following and the fact that he is still currently undefeated.
Check out the Strikeforce Miami fight card below as well as what Bobby Lashley has to say about it and his thoughts on Fedor:
“When the fight comes with Fedor, which is going to be two, maybe three fights away, I will be definitely ready for him. It’s hard for me because when Brock (Lesnar) came in [to the UFC] Brock fought for the title after his second fight and everybody was [upset] about that. So I take a step back and say, ‘I’m going to take a different route.’ And I take my time and I have fights and everybody is like, ‘Why doesn’t Bobby fight Fedor?’ You can’t win for losing. There’s nothing I can do so I figure I’m going to do it the right way, and the way I know is the right way, and work my way up. I guarantee you I’m going to give the fans what they want. I’m going to be on this guy like he’s never seen before. So I’ll definitely put on a great show.”
