Bobby Lashley Speaks On Fighting Fedor, TNA Status, More

Matt Boone

The following is an excerpt from an interview with Bobby Lashley from ESPN.com:

Robinson: I was at the Fedor/Rogers fight. For a second there, I thought Rogers was going to pull off the upset.

Lashley: I know. The myth almost got broke.

Robinson: How far off do you see a potential Lashley/Fedor main event?

Lashley: Coming in to this, I always said that I wanted to take my time, and I still do want to take my time, but I’m not 21-years-old, so I can’t take too much time. Hopefully by next year I should be able to get that title shot if everything works out right.

Robinson: You’re not only fighting for Strikeforce, but you’re also wrestling for TNA. Is it tough to see A.J. Styles walk around with the championship belt knowing that you could just walk over at any time and pound him down for real?

Lashley: [laughs] I gotta say "no comment" on that one. A.J. Styles is great, he’s a great performer, so I’m not going to take anything away from him. But when the time comes, the time will come. That’s all I have to say about that one.

Robinson: Getting back to the "MMA" game, what do you think is the toughest part of MMA to capture in a video game?

Lashley: Emotion. I think that’s always something that’s hard to capture in any game. But if they can somehow add an aggression level and momentum, that would be huge, because when you’re out there for real and you hit someone with a good shot, your aggression is going to be up and your momentum is going to be up and you’re going to be rockin’ and rollin’. If they could put that in the game, that would be cool.
