Lashley is missing the fighter chromosome. He's potentially a dangerous guy, but Fedor should be able to make him look foolish.

But hey with that being said, Fedor has not looked good lately, even through his 2 recent wins.

Can't believe Lashley actually fought Sapp already... haha.

I can't wait to watch Sapp fight Fedor for a freakshow to see. But on a serious note I agree that Fedor hasn't looked good. On another note Lashley doesn't have the instinct of a fighter.

...If Chad Griggs can TKO Lashley, Fedor will walk away with a 2nd rd. TKO or submission. Cool to see Fedor isn't totally done but unfortunately his legacy has been tarnished. He's working his way back but needs to get a spectactular win over one of the SF GP HW's to make a few waves...

Be a good win for Bobby,but if Fedor wins it does nothing really for him.If the fight happens it's just something to bring in money more than anything.

Fedor is just trying to get some recognisable names on his W column before retiring IMO, he tried to swim with the sharks as of late and it doesn't work out for him, even fighting LHW's. It's a high-risk/low-reward fight for Fedor.

If Lashley wins...would it even boost his profile? I doubt it, didn't to Antonio Silva.

Still going after these circus shows. If he joined the UFC people would still embrace him. Yet he tarnishes his legacy by continuing to fight low grade fighters. What's the point...

HMC, Bum Rogers, The Snowman, and now Bobby Lashley.

Another Fedor fight I can't be bothered to stay awake for. I'll catch it the day after. Come to the UFC, start from the bottom and make your way up, he'd gain far more respect doing that than fighting can after can.

This.

Fedor is my favourite fighter for many reasons, but fighting a can (sorry Lashley is a good guy but is a brutal MMA fighter) does nothing for him.

Fedor should have migrated to UFC back in 07/08.... he would have cleaned house then and we would have been able to see the Brock/Fedor fight.

Ahh well, cest la vie.

M-1 targets Monaco for Fedor Emelianenko's next fight

Yah looks like the fight with Lashley def not happening since they want "a European fighter" , In other news Gugenishvili is a beast.

This means nothing. They may just put Fedor in there with Monaco first. Then after that match they'll probably put Lashely in there with Fedor.
