Oddsmakers Agree, Bobby Lashley vs. Wes Sims Is an Epic Squash Match

Bobby Lashley
(Uh-oh, looks like someone ate that half a sandwich in the office refrigerator that Bobby was saving for lunch. He wrote his name on it for a reason, people.)

When we had trouble finding betting odds for the Bobby Lashley-Wes Sims fight for our Strikeforce: Miami edition of the Gambling Enabler, we initially chalked it up to the fact that the bout was a late addition.  Maybe we were right, or maybe it just took a little longer for oddsmakers to count this high.  A quick glance at BestFightOdds.com today reveals that Lashley is anywhere between a 12-1 and 15-1 favorite to beat Sims on Saturday night. 

Those of you who believe deep down that "certified black man" Wes Sims will take this can make a handsome profit by throwing some cheddar down on him while he’s still a 7-1 underdog.  Or you could just bury that cash and hope that a money tree grows in your backyard.  At least if that plan fails you’ll be able to dig your nest egg up again in time to bet it all on Frankie Edgar

So basically, what we’ve got here is another Lashley fight where he faces off against someone who was brought in to lose, this time on about a week’s notice.  Lashley still talks like since he’s only had four fights, fans shouldn’t expect him to fight anyone other than the Bob Sapps or Jason Guidas of the MMA world, but you can only have so many squash matches before it becomes a game of diminishing returns.  If Lashley wants to be taken seriously, it may be time for him to admit that his palooka punch card is just about full.

Sims was a TUF nobody. Lashley is a joke, and will be until he is standing over the limp body of someone with a name for destroying people.

Don't take it so personal .... I will back you if you use the forum properly.

The thing is, he's not dumb and he's been in the wrestling game for years. There are plenty of roidheads that you would never think of, in plenty of sports. Im sure there are secrets to beating tests.

For the record, I like this Lashley kid. He seems like a well-educated guy who works hard, and i haven't heard/seen him talk a great deal of trash--he's like the Anti-Brock.

And like ghostboner said, you think he hasn't had to test yet? This will be the second time he's fought in Florida, he fought Sapp in Mississippi, and he fought in Alberta. I have no idea about MFC and Alberta/Canada, but i'd not be shocked if Florida and Mississippi did not have rules in place to require testing. Plus, Bob freakin' Sapp fought in the US, so... Now i have no idea what to think.

I may have to reevaluate my support if it turns out that Lashley is only fighting in venues that won't test him for PEDs. Anyone know exactly what rules are for those areas? Either way, i completely agree that he needs to step up in competition soon, or his record becomes a joke.

This needs to be a caption contest. @CagePotato leader, make one! Best one gets a prize?

DAMMIT!!!! WHO ATE MY TWINKIE!!!!
ghostboner- January 28, 2010 at 10:49 pm
I thought Strikeforce tested? If they don't, the state of Florida surely does. Right?

Entertainment wrestling can't possibly have a need for steroid testing. Got my picks in for the fightpicker!

And to think TheFactor, I backed yur ass up yesterday about Chuck retiring. Just cuz a guy has a little fun ya gotta hate on him. You are all to high on yourselves.
DazedNConfused- January 28, 2010 at 5:57 pm
I know everyone always talks about overeem and the possibility he's on steroids (He is), but look at Lashley. Theres no way that comes from protein and hard gym work. Go fuck yourself.

I'm going to enjoy watching Lashley shrink just like Lesnar did. As soon as one of those bull-ball-juice injecting failures gets into a company or sport with any semblence of testing, they become shrink-ee-dinks.

@Pinsklayer and powers that be at Cagepotato ... can we give an extra rashion of fightpicker chips to the man for saying what everyone here was thinking!

Hey cecil, shut your fucking mouth you loser. No one cares that you're first, and everyone hates you for double posting like a noob. Don't try and qualify your worthless post w/ a prediction at the end, no one here takes people who post "first" seriously, so quit wasting our time and comment space.

Part of me hopes Sims pulls off the win of his life and sinks the Lashley ship.
TheFactor- January 28, 2010 at 4:23 pm

Or not enough ... he's complicated.
TheFactor- January 28, 2010 at 4:22 pm

No no no this the face Bobby aways makes after he swallows a too many Anadrol - 50 ... He'll be ok.
AndyInflammatory- January 28, 2010 at 4:18 pm
Oh man I'd love to see Sims break the internet.

@MMA42
You are correct, on both counts.
MMA42- January 28, 2010 at 3:53 pm
Also, that is the face of someone in DIRE needs to take a shit.
MMA42- January 28, 2010 at 3:49 pm
I'll take Sims on this one. He's due for a win. Sims by TKO due to madvillany skills
superflat- January 28, 2010 at 3:45 pm
Here's the thing -- Wes Sims gut is easy on the fists. Lashley will be able fight again next week, if he wants to. It's not like Strikeforce can fill out their cards at this point, so don't be surprised if we see Lashley fighting on the next card, hopefully against someone who doesn't look like a Twinkie.
cecils_pupils- January 28, 2010 at 3:37 pm
@pinkyslayer yur right, a noobs gotta do what a noobs gotta do. Can't a guy have a little fun from time to time? Don't take yourself so seriously... no one else does.
