In an exclusive interview with Matt Brown at Heavy.com [Bobby Lashley, Full Time Mixed Martial Artist], former pro wrestling champion Bobby Lashley let the world in on a secret, of sorts. Right now, Lashley is focusing solely on MMA with Strikeforce and not on wrestling with TNA at all.

The 6′ 3″, 250 pound competitor, who has amassed a 5-0 professional record, spoke very candidly:

Heavy.com: So, at least for the time being, Bobby Lashley is solely a mixed martial artist?

Lashley: Yes.

Heavy.com: All these short answers! Give me the skinny.

Lashley: (laughs) I don’t really know much man. I had a talk with the guys a while back about doing both. Everything seemed to be working well. 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, so yes, I can focus full time on MMA.
