Quoteworthy:

"This year has been tough with the injuries I've had; plus I got mono. I've started back with my training and there have been a couple of fights come up that I've given a thumbs up to, and I've tentatively got a fight scheduled. It's December 10th or 11th, but I have to wait on saying who it's with. There's two different organizations that I'm talking to. I have to get out there and fight. I asked Strikeforce for a rematch (with Griggs), but I'm not sure if it's in the works. I don't really know what's in my contract. The last thing I want to do is do something to violate my contract. After my last fight, I owe it to Scott Coker and to the world to come back stronger."

Professional wrestler turned aspiring mixed martial artist Bobby Lashley looks to continue his heavyweight journey even if it means pursuing fights outside of the Strikeforce promotion, who currently holds an exclusive negotiating period with "The Dominator" after his contract expired last month. Lashley suffered the first defeat of his career in "Houston" after getting pounded out by relative unknown Chad Griggs. Is there a future for the bald bruiser outside of the San Jose-based promotion? Or did his chances of reaching the pinnacle of the sport get buried by the "Gravedigger" back in August?
