Bobby Lashley is criminally underrated.

That is the opinion held by former UFC Heavyweight Champion Josh Barnett, anyways.

The MMA legend and NJPW veteran who is also the founder of the Bloodsport pro wrestling events recently appeared as a guest on WrestleTalk's Wrestling Daily Show to promote the upcoming Bloodsport events scheduled for February 2021 and during the interview, "The War Master" spoke explained why Bobby Lashley is "criminally underrated."

Featured below is an excerpt from the interview where Josh Barnett talks about Bobby Lashley being underrated and talks about how he would make a perfect fit for his Bloodsport shows.

“No sh*t [Lashley would be perfect for Bloodsport]. Absolutely. There’s no way I could pull Lashley from the WWE, nor would they allow it and I get it. I think he is — I mean hell, even with the stuff he’s doing now, I still think he’s underrated. Bobby Lashley is criminally underrated, I think he’s an incredible wrestler and the guy can fight for real too because not only have I trained him and been in his corner, in fact every time I’ve been in Bobby Lashley’s corner he’s won, so absolutely, plus we’re 1-1 against each other right now. I got a win over him in IGF [Inoki Genome Federation], he’s got a win over me in IMPACT. Yeah, wouldn’t mind having ‘ole Bobby back in the ring so I can take him down, put him on his back. Don’t let him lie to you. Don’t let him try to say that I’ve never taken him down.”
