Brock Lesnar is certainly one of the most highly accomplished pro wrestlers in the history of the industry. He has squared off against the best of the best the pro wrestling world ahs to offer as well. A former WWE writer also wanted him and Bobby Lashley to have an MMA fight.
Bobby Lashley is one of the most legitimate athletes to have competed in the world of both MMA and pro wrestling. Lashley has a great record in the MMA world, especially in Strikeforce. On the other hand, Brock Lesnar had a great run in the UFC where he even became the UFC Heavyweight Champion.
While speaking on Wrestling with Freddie, former writer Freddie Prinze Jr. stated that he really wanted an MMA f ight between Brock Lesnar and Bobby Lashley.
“People, I think, have wanted to watch these guys fight and have gotten to see a little bit. I always wanted these guys to fight in their prime and it never really, like, matched up schedule-wise. It’s like, Bobby wasn’t in the WWE or Brock was in the UFC. I would’ve loved to see them fight in Mixed Martial Arts because they both have experience in that as well. It actually is probably the only match that I’m hyped for on the entire Crown Jewel card.”
Brock Lesnar is set to face off against Bobby Lashley at WWE Crown Jewel on November 5th. We will have to wait and see whether Lesnar will be able to beat Lashley or not. An MMA fight may not happen but fans have accepted that already.
