Bobby Lashley in Talks with Bellator and Possible Fight with Fedor Emelianenko

Former Strikeforce heavyweight prospect, Bobby Lashely has revealed he has two separate paths he could take thi year, a contract with the ever fast rising promotion Bellator Fighting Championships or a possible fight with the formerly ranked number one fighter on the planet, Fedor Emelianenko.

Lashley, speaking via Fighters Only Magazine, said:

“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.”

On Fedor fight, he added:

“The guy’s got a tremendous amount of fights under his belt… I’d like to fight him. 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… If it was Dave [Bautista], I’m standing and banging with him. I’ve been doing a lot of boxing.”
