Bobby Lashley may not have gotten a fair shake from the MMA community. He entered the fight game after a career in the WWE and was viewed by almost everyone as a 'poor man's Brock Lesnar'. It's how the WWE fans viewed him when he made his wrestling debut and it's how MMA viewed him as well. During his time in Strikeforce, he was criticized for taking easy fights, with most viewing him as an expensive can-crusher. He'd deflect this accusations by saying that he is new to the business and taking his time to develop. He'd then add that if people had a problem with how he's handling his career, he'd like to fight Fedor instead. Well, it looks like Bobby Lashley will get his wish.

This fight will be a little tougher for Fedor but I don't see Lashley being able to take too many punches. Since Deforestation TDD is pretty good I see Fedor winning by tko

I'll believe it when I see the two in the cage and the referee starts the fight. This is no exaggeration, for every fight that Bobby Lasley has had, his opponent has changed at least twice prior to each fight. That being said Lashley will probably face Tim Hague on this show.

Is Hague gonna be the 1st change or 2nd?

was it Lashley's last fight that he had 4-5 opponents named within a month? or am i confusing this scenario w/ someone else?

I could see a stern test for Fedor in the first round but I doubt Lashley with have the lungs after.

I doubt this fight happens. I think Lashley will be the one to bow out with an injury or something.

I also kinda thought Lashley was done fighting.

Lashley's best chance is to take it to the ground but my prediction is Lashley will get tko-ed or submitted.
