With a recent first round TKO over Bob “The Beast” Sapp, Bobby Lashley is now 4-0 in his young MMA career. With each new fight Lashley has taken steps up in competition. At the same time, his MMA skills are noticeably improving.
Many expected the former WWE wrestler to take a similar path as UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar who joined the UFC after just one professional fight. Lashley, however is taking a more gradual approch. In fact, he is actually paying his dues in the MMA world. There was a lot of talk when Lesnar first entered the UFC and got a quick title shot that he did not deserve it. Lashley wants to avoid that kind of controversy.
