Bobby Lashley Says He Never Should Have Signed With Strikeforce
Posted by Joseph Lee on 09.02.2014



In an interview with MMA Junkie, Bobby Lashley (10-2 MMA, 0-0 BMMA) said that he never should have signed with Strikeforce. He will make his Bellator MMA debut at Bellator 123 this Friday against Josh Burns (8-7 MMA, 0-2 BMMA). It airs on Spike TV from the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut.

On his goals: "I want to swing for the fences and go after some of the bigger names. This is my last run, so I don't want to make it gradual. Some of these next few fights, there's some guys I really want to get in the cage with."

On his Strikeforce run: "I didn't have to (sign with Strikeforce), and I wish I didn't do it. I don't think there are too many fighters who started their career and went straight to a major promotion like I did. It's a double-edged sword. Me, coming from a wrestling background, of course everyone wants to throw me up there because – the promoters were like, ‘If we're going to pay you more, you've got to fight on a bigger stage so we can get something out of you.'"

On building experience: "I decided to sit back and fight in smaller promotions and just have some fights under my belt without the pressure and the spotlight on it. I stepped back a little bit before because I became a single father, and I really had to take some time away for my kids. That was the time away I've had in the last couple years and didn't have the opportunity to really train the way I wanted to. Now I have everything back together, I have more support at home, and now it's an opportunity to step back on a major stage. Bellator is great, so I think this is the best thing for me right now."
