"Well, it's one of two things. Either they're going to allow me do it the way I wanna do it and build, or they're going to give me a title shot. Either or. I would like a title shot. I guess it's Overeem, he's the one who has the title right now. Him or Fedor, whoever. I wanted to take my time to build up but everyone's pushing me to get bigger and better fights so if I'm going to get bigger and better fights let's go for the best."
Undefeated Strikeforce heavyweight Bobby Lashley (5-0) talks to the gang at Showtime Sports regarding his "Miami" win over Wes Sims on the main card of the January 30 event. "The Dominator" was too much for the short-notice opponent, finishing the TUF 10 contestant via first round TKO. Lashley wants to continue his slow build to the upper echelon of heavyweights but feels pressured by outside influences to go for the gold. Is he going to pose a legitimate threat to the promotion's top heavyweights? Or will his goose get cooked by the likes of Fedor and Overeem?
