- Bobby Lashley recently spoke to The MMA Digest. Here are some highlights from the interview:
ON KEN SHAMROCK BEING OUSTED AS HIS OPPONENT: “I was a little disappointed in the fact that I didn’t get to fight him…we train specifically for our opponent. I was going through 2 pretty tough practices everyday and we were staying afterwards, after the final practice in the evening and going for an hour and a half to 2 hours on just what Shamrock was going to do—some of his tricks, some of his key moves and everything like that.”
THOUGHTS ON HIS NEW OPPONENT JASON GUIDA: “I think he’s a decent opponent, I think he’s a decent fighter. It’s my second fight; he has one advantage—he has had so many fights under his belt…so we’re not going to take him lightly at all, he’s a vet, he knows a lot of tricks, he has been in there before, he’s going to be comfortable, he’s going to be ready to bang and really he has nothing to lose. So we’re just going to go in there really aggressive, we’re going to stay on him, and we’re going to force the issue and see if he can take it.”
