"I'm fighting again [in 2010] for sure...in November at the latest ... I already asked for a [Chad Griggs] rematch, because when you have certain events like I did that sort of hindered me from being able to open up and fight, I've got to go back. I'd hate for them to use that fight to boost somebody's career, saying, 'Okay, he beat Bobby,' because that wasn't really the case. If I didn't have these problems, and I'd been able to go out there and fight, I think it would have been a pretty quick win for me. But I just didn't have anything in me. When I went to the hospital afterward, they said I was really dehydrated. I went to hospital on Thursday before the fight because I wasn't feeling very good. I was just sluggish and not feeling good, so I went to urgent care and got checked out. I thought I was going to be okay. We didn't do any blood work, but they gave me an IV because they said I was a little dehydrated then and when I went in there and fought I didn't have anything in me."
-- Previously undefeated Bobby Lashley whips out the excuse Rolodex following his surprise loss to Chad Griggs at last month's Strikeforce: "Houston" event on Showtime. No one, except perhaps his 15 family members in attendance at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, gave the "Grave Digger" much of a chance to beat, much less pound out, the former two-time WWE heavyweight champion. Lashley was carted off on a stretcher following the defeat and blames mononucleosis for some of his difficulties. "The Dominator" is also awaiting additional blood test results to make sure he's healthy enough to compete in a potential rematch. Do fans want to see him try and redeem himself in another go-round with Griggs? Or is it time to move on and look towards the future? Lashley vs. Batista? Anyone?
