Ken Shamrock: Bobby Lashley is not a fat guy laying on his back

Props: Square Ring Promotions


"I’ve done a lot of firsts. I was the first heavyweight champ of MMA and first foreign champ in Japan. This is the first time two champions (Jones and Shamrock) in their individual sports, at this level, will be fighting on the same card – boxing and MMA. I think it’s the way of the future and it’s happening now. Lashley got things going in wrestling and then the WWE. Now he’s in MMA. He’s very good. I think he’s 270-pounds of muscle – quick, explosive and strong. The area he lacks, gound skills, he makes up for with his strength and ability to move on the ground. He can really move on his feet. This isn’t a fat guy laying on his back."

UFC Hall-of-Famer Ken Shamrock (27-13-2) prepares for his upcoming bout against former WWE superstar Bobby Lashley at "March Badness" — a hybrid mixed martial arts and boxing event being put on by former boxing champion Roy Jones Jr. live on pay-per-view (PPV) from the Pensacola Civic Center in Pensacola, Fla., on March 21. "The World's Most Dangerous Man" is coming off his first win in almost five years at Wargods "Valentine's Eve Massacre" where he harpooned Ross Clifton early in round one. Shammy doesn't anticipate the same level of resistance from Lashley - though it may not matter once the hulking behemoth gets his hands on the 45-year old MMA pioneer.
