"He wants to fight for the title, but he’s got to get through me first. Hopefully he’s not overlooking me. He needs to be prepared. If he loses to me, it’s going to take him awhile to get back in the running, getting people to once again believe that he’s the man. Everybody wants to see Bobby fight and wants to see him tested. So the message is that I’m planning on testing him. The goal is to get there and hit him with a few things he hasn’t been hit with yet. We’ll see if he really does want to fight or not. I think the fans will jump over to my side once the tide turns. Once they see he’s not invincible, I think they’ll come over to the underdog’s side. I know I’ll have a few fans there, and hopefully after the fight, I’ll have a few more."
Strikeforce heavyweight Chad Griggs plans on derailing the Bobby Lashley hype train when they collide at the upcoming "Houston" event on Aug. 21. "The Grave Digger" has won three straight fights with three (T)KO finishes and would do a lot to elevate his status by upsetting the "Dominator." Does Griggs have a shot at playing spoiler? Or is he just another regional fighter being "fed" to the former WWE superstar?
