Bobby Lashley was interviewed by The Hannibal TV and asked about his opinion of CM Punk in UFC including his quick loss and potential return to the company.
"Yeah, Punk got beat up in his last fight. Who cares? He made a lot of money, he trained his ass off, and he stepped into that cage. Punk lost his first fight. He tried and they say that he's going to take another fight. I'm like, more power to you man. Go out there and fight. sh*t, if you lose, it doesn't even matter. We have to start encouraging people to step out of their comfort zones and start doing new things. Anything anybody does new, there are a bunch of naysayers. Everybody wants to be a critic. A critic without the actual accolades to be a critic. When I go to Japan, they don't care if you win or lose; they just want to see a good fight. If you go out there, train your ass off, and fight, then people should applaud you no matter what."
