Lashley Wins Again


I like Lashley's approach to MMA. He's staying active instead of hoping for his name to carry him. If he beats Bob Sapp, he'll have the bigger promotions craving his attention. The UFC might step up just to keep him out of Strikeforce.

He looks like a bigger version of Marcus Hicks, but that kind of choke out isn't going to get him a win against an opponent that knows what they're doing.

On top of hicks staying in TNA and saying himself that he doesn't want to be in the big time/not ready for the big time just yet, he's not going to be in the UFC any time soon.

This fight was obviously rigged. It's another sad day for contemporary mma. No mma fighter worth his salt can be front choked like that at the onset of the 1st round.

Obviously Mike Cook is not worth his salt. Probably not worth my salt either. Perhaps Morton's salt. But then again I don't know. Conjecture!

I might normally agree with you brett, but watch the previous couple of fights he's had. In his debut fight he displayed some great wrestling and what looked like some glancing blows cut up Franklin pretty bad. He's got strength and speed he just needs experience and he's not going ot get that fighting fighters that are taken out by crappy chokes.

Chris, no disrespect but you don't know anything. Lashley has little speed because his coach named the lack of speed as his main weakness at this point in his career.
