I would imagine any card that ends with Fedor Emelianenko vs. Bobby Lashley probably involves nuclear explosions and some dude with a walking stick on the top of a hill screaming his lungs out. If Bobby Lashley is only on the card, it’s a bit more laid back. Maybe a homeless guy 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 sasquatches holding Soviet-issued AKS-74s. 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 headlined by Lashley vs. Fedor.
Bobby Lashley told Fighter’s Only that his name is on M-1’s list of potential match-ups for Emelianenko — and it seems Lashley has no problem fighting The Last Emperor.
“I’m going to throw everything at him that I can. Of course, my wrestling’s there, I don’t give a damn what he’s doing. I’d put my wrestling up there with almost anyone right now.
“I think that my wrestling would trump some of the things that he has. I know he’s a great fighter, but if I fought him then of course I’m going to try and wrestle him down.
In the interview, Lashley also claims that he’s close to signing with Bellator, in fact he received a call from the promotion just yesterday. It’s about time someone grabs Lashley, the fact that he wasn’t in a major promotion after his departure from Strikeforce is the most boggling of the mind-boggling.
