Source: MMAFightingFormer WWE and TNA star Bobby Lashley's next MMA fight has been announced. Lashley (5-1) will face Darrill Schoonover (11-5) on November 11th for a Shark Fights card in Lubbock, Texas.
During an interview with Ariel Helwani on Monday's edition of The MMA Hour, Lashley spoke about working his way back up the MMA ranks after an unimpressive
"I believe [Strikeforce CEO Scott] Coker said this, he said he doesn't believe that I want it … I have all the respect in the world for Coker, and he may have been right. Maybe I wasn't ready for Strikeforce at the time. …I didn't have everything together and I wasn't training the way I should have."
Lashley also resumed talk about a possible 'dream fight' between himself and former WWE star Dave Batista. Lashley acknowledged that a fight between two former pro wrestlers might turn of some MMA fight fans, but still wants to make the fight happen.
"If we do the fight, let's do winner-take-all. Let's put one purse up there, winner takes all."
"I'd love to fight Dave. I guess that's a super fight and that's a fight for maybe the wrestling fans. I don't know how well the MMA community would take it. I guess they would just sort of shrug their shoulders and say, 'whatever,' but I know it's a fight that a lot of wrestling fans would love to see."
