After his 24-second destruction of Mike Cook, former WWE superstar Bobby Lashley (3-0) gets ready to face his biggest challenge yet as he faces Bob “The Beast” Sapp (10-4-1) in the “Ultimate Chaos” pay-per-view event main event this Saturday, June 27th, live from the Mississippi Gulf Coast Coliseum in Biloxi, Mississippi.
“He’s a formidable opponent,” Lashley said of Sapp on HDNet’s Inside MMA program on Friday. “I think a lot of people have been saying ‘We want Bobby to fight someone big so he can’t just muscle them around and push them around.
“Well, this person is as big as they get,” Lashley noted. “He outweighs me by a good 100 pounds. So I’m not going to be able to muscle hem around, so you’re going to see another element.”
