Josh Barnett Says Bobby Lashley Is One Of The Sickest Athletes He Has Ever Come Across

MMA legend Josh Barnett recently appeared on Comedy Store Wrestling to talk about a variety of topics such as how if Brock Lesnar and Bobby Lashley were to face each other in a 2-Out-Of-3 takedown battle he might even choose Bobby Lashley as the winner because he is such a sick freak.

Josh Barnett said:

“He’s (Bobby Lashley) such a sick freak, and to the point where if him and Brock Lesnar were to face off and do two-out-of-three for takedowns, I don’t know who’s gonna win. In fact, I might even be convinced to bet on Bobby and that’s not to say that Brock is bad. No, no, no. By no means am I actually casting any aspersions upon Brock Lesnar’s wrestling abilities because I know they are top notch. He’s a stud, guaranteed, I back it.”

Josh Barnett also talked about how Bobby Lashley’s amateur wrestling ability gets slept on and how he is nuts to be able to pull off some of the stuff he has.

Josh Barnett said:

“Bobby is slept on for his amateur wrestling and I wrested Tony Nelson who’s a two-time NCAA Champion. At that time, he’s probably like 250. I’m in on a single and I’m trying to run the pipe and move him around and I step in, elevate him. I’ve torqued his underside leg and I think I got him going down, like I’m gonna score it and somehow like a f*cking cat, you know what I mean? With the butter side bread on it like that little meme, he just lands right on his all fours, pops back up, keeps fighting and goes after three different takedown options off of every defense I throw and then finishes and I just go, ‘F*ck you Bobby. That’s some bullsh*t. I’m not even gonna pull the athleticism card. I’m just gonna say you’re nuts. It’s insane how much you’re able to manage a sort of thing’ but, I have taken Bobby down before and you know it’s true Bobby. Come on, you gotta know it. You gotta admit it so I’ve taken Bobby down but, the score is still in his favor.”

Josh Barnett then talked about how Lashley is one of the sickest athletes he has ever come across.

Josh Barnett said:

“He’s one of the sickest athletes I’ve ever come across, an incredible wrestler, I love how smooth he is and how quick his transitions can be and one guy at the gym was gonna spar him and he tells me later, he goes, he sees Bobby across the ring, he’s like, ‘Alright.’ They’re doing MMA sparring, they got the MMA gloves on. Looking at him and he feels like, he describes it as Bobby’s on one side of the cage and he’s on the other and Bobby basically makes a level change and goes, ‘There’s no way he’s gonna shoot –’ and all of a sudden, he’s in on him from some insane distance, as fast as he could blink and down he goes.”
