Bobby Lashley on a potential clash against Brock Lesnar in the future

Bobby Lashley was recently interviewed by NewsHub where he revealed his desire to face the Universal Champion Brock Lesnar in the forthcoming future. The 42-year-old admitted that he is desperate to face “The Beast” be it a wrestling ring or the octagon and reflected on the similarities between their careers. He said:

Our careers are so similar, We were both WWE guys, then we went into fighting then we have both come back to WWE. It makes sense. [MMA] was something I suggested when I first came in. The problem is I am still currently contracted to Bellator and Brock is signed with the UFC.

“However if there was some sort of cross-promotion fight we could do, with all three companies involved, then I would absolutely love to do it.

“Right now I’m focused on the wrestling side of things and what comes with that, including a match with Brock, but I would be down for that and I am sure the fans would be as well. We will see.”


Lashley also added that the fans deserve to see this encounter and painted a picture about the fans’ anticipation for the clash. Lashley added:

“So many people deserve that match, I deserve it, Brock deserves it and the fans deserve it. To have the opportunity to hopefully face Brock with his MMA background, now that I have a similar background with 19 heavyweight fights under my belt.

“For the past 10-years, I have got countless messages from people all around the world that are just dying to see myself and Brock, get inside a wrestling ring together, and create something memorable.

“I just think that is a match that needs to happen. It’s been written since I started my professional wrestling career. From the minute I stepped inside the ring people have compared me to Brock.”

    Well I don’t think Brock will be in UFC to long something tells me after 1 fight maybe 2 he will be back. I also think Brock contract deal back at WM 34 means he might be doing both WWE and UFC.

    I’ll go along with this. Just wish it could have happened when they were both a tad younger. Will be interesting to see how this plays out if Brock is indeed on his way out. If Lashley doesn’t get added to the Summerslam match, it may be a while before they are in the same ring together, if at all.
