Over the past few years, Bobby Lashley has exhibited some of the best in-ring work of his career, really honing in his character. After leaving WWE in 2008, Lashley traveled the world as a pro wrestler, as well as embarked in a career in mixed martial arts. During his time in Impact Wrestling, Lashley has also competed in MMA fights, and has built a very successful career. He is undefeated in all of his fights for Bellator, and has only lost two out of his 17 MMA fights overall.

At nearly 41, Lashley does not have much time left in either pro wrestling or MMA. For a number of years, he has enjoyed the ability of competing for both forms of combat sport, since he was not exclusive to either. However, this may be changing soon.

According to PWInsider, there was word at the Slammiversary pay-per-view that Lashley’s representatives from his MMA training group, American Top Team, want him to leave pro wrestling altogether and dedicate the rest of his sports career in mixed martial arts.

Of course, the final decision is up to Lashley regarding what he wants to do for the remainder of his career. However, since he no longer has to fulfill the commitments of being a world champion, MMA could quite possibly be his choice of sport henceforth.
