Lashley Vs Fedor would be huge and a really interesting match-up IMO.

Im upset the UFC won't go after Lashley, yet they are using Kimbo as a poster boy lately.

Thumbs up to SF here.

My thoughts exactly.

This just in...the UFC has just signed Jared from Subway. A match with Brock Lesnar is in the works!

You guys are pretty rediculous. Everyone was all excited when the UFC signed a 1-0 Lesnar, but when strikeforce does it with a 4-0 fighter it's alot of nothing?

Lashley hasn't looked near as good as most thought he would. He still has a lot of huge holes in his game right now. I'm shocked some want to see him fight Fedor because Lashley hasn't even fought anyone even close to a top 10 HW so whats makes them think he is ready for the best HW in the world.

I said the same thing then. Then I laughed when Mir tapped him.

Almost everyone was very negative about the signing of Lesnar. Then after the fight with Mir even though he lost he looked very impressive. Lashley has had 4 fights now and got taken to a decision by Jason Guida. Now I will say he looked better in his last 2 fights but he performance against Guida was very disappointing.

Exactly. It wasn't until *AFTER* Lesnar fought Mir that people started swinging from his nuts.

At first this post perplexed me.
I didn't know were to start.
Then I noticed your screen name and said; "Ah ha! That explains it!"


But at any rate, Lashley is a smart HW for Strikeforce to add to their evergrowing roster of fighters.

Dana, I'm glad your here! You do know that sponsors are for the fighter not the UFC, so quit banning them and letting Dan go was a huge mistake. Also Fedor is the best fighter in MMA history and still currently is. Whew so glad I could finally say a few things directly to you!
