Bobby Lashley Wants Fedor Over Bellator Title Fight

Bobby Lashley has held his fair share of championships in the pro wrestling world, but that's not necessarily his primary goal in MMA.

Lashley wants to become the Bellator MMA Heavyweight Champion, but he would rather fight the legendary Fedor Emelianenko. He spoke of his desire on The MMA Hour last week.

"At the end of the day it's about the money," he says. "If I was offered a shot at fighting for the title, going for the title, or fighting Fedor, I'd go Fedor all the way. As far as a shot against Kongo, the money is important. If winning the title means making more money, then that's what I'm going for. But I'd like to fight someone to prove something to the naysayers. I'd much rather fight somebody who is a bigger name, like Fedor, then fight for the championship. He's Fedor. He's an enormous name and I always looked up to him before. He's an amazing fighter and I'd love to step in the ring with him. It would be unbelievable."

A victory over Fedor would be the biggest in Lashley's career. The 40-year old Lashley is 15-2 in his MMA career.
