    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Bobby Lashey in MMA?

    WWE wrestler Bobby Lashey (can't spell his last name) is in talks to start training for MMA after he quit WWE,This could be interesting as he comes from a freestyle background and is lot younger then Brock Lesner (his wrestling skills would still be fresh im guessing) any thoughts?

    thanks

    i can't wait to see his fight (mainly so he never steps back into Pro wrestling again lol he sucked big time lol) but he should do ok as long as he gets to grips with submissions quickly and stays away from Mir lol

    If he is smart, he would be best served beating on chumps and then some C level guys for about 1-2 years before moving up to B-level. If he gets the right coaches (guys who can help him adapt is wrestling to MMA while continuing to improve and implement advanced grappling/submissions and quality striking) and the right training partners (guys his own size and bulk for training partners).

    If his wiki page is right then he is currently 32 and would probably want to make a run at the big leagues before it's not a viable option for him anymore.

    Edit: Interestingly, him and Brock Lesnar are only a year apart in age it would seem.

    I disagree, I think they should MAKE him fight Mir. Then Mir would get a cool nickname like "Bane of WWE" or "Pro Wrestler-Killer" or something.

    I would love to see Frank in MMA IF he trains to adapt his wrestling. He demolished me in wrestling in the Army but I am sure I could sub him.

    Wasn't his nickname "Black Lesnar" when he started with WWE?
