Will this dream fight ever become a reality?

There are rumours that former Global Force Wrestling Heavyweight Champion Bobby Lashley is looking to step back from professional wrestling and focus more on his MMA career.

During a GFW conference call, Lashley stated the two biggest fights that he can have are against current WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar and MMA legend Fedor Emelianenko. Lesnar has an MMA record of 5-3 (1) but is one of the biggest box office draws in UFC history. Fedor is 36-5 (1) but is currently 40 years old and has lost four of his last nine fights.

To this day, Lashley claims that many people come up to him and ask if he is going to return to the WWE or have a fight with Brock Lesnar. It is also interesting to note that the former United States army captain not only sees a fight with the Beast Incarnate as a big payday but also believes that it is a winnable proposition.
