Bobby Lashley Says He's Had Discussions With BKFC To Do Bare Knuckle Fight

Although it's been some time since Bobby Lashley last competed in anything outside of a wrestling ring, he's been in talks for a potential fight that isn't in a WWE ring. 

Lashley also possesses a solid win-loss record in MMA (15-2), but he hasn't competed for Bellator MMA since 2016. During an interview with TV Insider, the current WWE United States Champion said he still has fights left on his Bellator deal but has also been in discussions with Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC).

"I’m fighting until I can’t fight anymore. I just had a conversation with the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship guy. We discussed going out there and doing a bare knuckle fight. I still have an agreement with Bellator. I always thought I would find my way back to WWE. When I signed my Bellator contract, I had an out clause for the WWE. It said if WWE alone offered me a contract they would relieve me from the Bellator contract. [Bellator MMA President] Scott Coker is an amazing guy. The fact he gave me that contract was just incredible. But since he gave me it, I still have fights with Bellator and can fight with them, which is a really good thing," Lashley said.

BKFC is no stranger to signing notable people from various fighting backgrounds. The promotion recently signed former UFC star Paige VanZant and previously signed former boxing world champion Paulie Malignaggi, who lost his BKFC debut to Artem Lobov in 2019.
