Depending on why you’re a fan of Bobby Lashley, we’ve got some good/bad news for you as the former TNA superstar has taken an involuntary and indefinite leave from professional wrestling in order to pursue MMA full time.
“I had a talk with the guys a while back about doing [MMA and wrestling], everything seemed to be working well,” Lashley recently told Heavy.com. “I think maybe there were some complications there towards the end. I got back home and got all these calls from people saying that I had been released from wrestling.
“So as far as I know, I’ve been released. I can focus full time on MMA.”
The 33-year-old feels that his TNA release could be a blessing in disguise, especially if you take into consideration his late start in mixed martial arts, so he fully intends to utilize his abundance of free time on perfecting his new craft.
“This is a crazy sport. I love this sport,” Lashley said. “It is one of those things that you have to pour your heart into it. And I have to concentrate on the training in order to make it to where I want to make it in MMA.”
