There is a lot of speculation regarding what former WWE wrestler Bobby Lashley will do with his new mixed martial arts career and if he’ll have a home in the UFC. Lashley seems to have a lot of the same characteristics that have helped UFC heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar get to where he is – both guys are huge, had very good amateur wrestling careers and have a look that is highly marketable.
In an interview with TheFukerton.com, UFC President Dana white was asked who will be in the UFC first – Bobby Lashley or Kurt Angle. White responded, “Neither. I don’t know, just because Brock did it doesn’t mean everyone can do it.”
Lashley was scheduled for his second MMA fight later this month but was forced to pull out after suffering an ankle ligament injury during a training session.
Lashley won his first fight via a first round TKO. You can see a video online of his win at this link.
