WrestlingInc.com is reporting that top WWE star Bobby Lashley has requested his release from WWE and is looking for a potential career in Mixed Martial Arts. While Lashley has requested his release, it has not yet been finalized with WWE.
Lashley had trained at San Jose’s American Kickboxing Academy to go into MMA when he got his WWE offer in 2004. The former World Champion said that despite the fact that he wanted to pursue an MMA career, it would not be with UFC. If WWE does grant Lashley his release, they may try to block him from competing in MMA, similar to the release they gave Brock Lesnar (that Lesnar was able to get out of in the courts).
