I would imagine any card that begins with Fedor vs. Lashley probably involves nuclear explosions and some dude with a walking stick on the top of a hill screaming ‘Argh!’. If you only have Lashley on the card, it’s a bit more laid back. Maybe a homeless dude on a street corner holding up a sign that says ‘The end is nigh‘ surrounded by a couple of burning cars. But when Fedor is thrown in there…you really have to go the extra mile. Throw some aliens in the mix along with some Sasquatches holding Soviet issued M-2s…and to top it off, replace the sun with a giant celestial strobe light. Yeah, a strobe light. That’s the only way anyone can replicate the amount of rawesomeite sticks packed into a card that’s hypothetically topped off with Lashley vs. Fedor.
In an interview with Sun-Sentinel.com, Bobby Lashley says that he’s been extensively training for his January 31st fight with that TBA guy (a fight with Greg Nagy was ruled ‘non-competitive’ and his replacement, Jimmy Ambriz, seems to be a no-show). He also says that he will fight Fedor after a couple of fights.
“When the fight comes with Fedor, which is going to be two, maybe three fights away, I will be definitely ready for him”
