Bobby Lashley in talks with Bellator and Fedor’s management

Bobby Lashley revealed to FightersOnly that he is currently in talks with Bellator and Fedor Emelianenko’s management.

According to Lashley, Fedor Emelianenko’s people are considering a match up with Lashley among others, for his next fight.

“The guy’s got a tremendous amount of fights under his belt… I’d like to fight him.” said Lashley “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.

“It was a contract that was just put on the table… I got the call yesterday so I don’t even know any of the details of the deal. I think Bellator is a great company and I would love to be able to fight for them.” said former WWE superstar Lashley about the possibility of signing for Bellator FC.

“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… If it was Dave [Bautista], I’m standing and banging with him. I’ve been doing a lot of boxing.”

“I know a lot of people are looking at that fight and saying I shouldn’t take it, but that’s the entertainment aspect of [MMA]. If the wrestling fans want that then it’s an opportunity for me to have a fight, which will probably warrant a good amount of money… I’ll take that fight, no problem.”

“I wanna fight the best, so if I have an opportunity to fight Fedor, let’s do it. If I have an opportunity to fight anyone right now let’s just damn do it.”
