In a rather interesting move, Bobby Lashley has decided to make his Instagram account private, which means that fans are not able to see his pictures and updates without following his account. The former WWE and current MMA star made the change recently.
Bobby Lashley picked up his tenth MMA victory on Friday night when he defeated Tony Melton in Tulsa.
Jason David Frank, who is most known for portraying the Green Ranger in the Power Rangers television series, has challenged CM Punk to an MMA fight through his Instagram account. Frank has stated that he respects Punk and his fighting abilities, so he simply wants to test his skills out.
In a move that might have been encouraged by Dana White to promote the potential return, Alistair Overeem called out Brock Lesnar after defeating Frank Mir at a UFC event this past weekend. Lesnar is attempting to work with WWE on making his MMA return possible.
Since UFC is holding an event in Chicago this weekend, CM Punk has asked for the weekend off to attend. WWE has granted him the request. It is also being said that officials backstage are no longer as vocal about him attending MMA events as they were in the past.
While he is not doing so on a weekly basis like a lot of former WWE stars, Bobby Lashley is still doing some wrestling. The former ECW star, who is still focused on his MMA career, has been booked for a match against Big Daddy V in February in Tennessee.
Big E Langston made a joke on Twitter about himself, Bobby Lashley and how black people all look alike.
"CM Punk might want to be careful with trying MMA. Those boys aren't getting paid to let him win like they do in WWE. I wish him luck, though."

The widely held belief is that Brock Lesnar would be immediately booked into a rematch against Alistair Overeem if he decides to return to UFC. Overeem was the person that defeated him for the heavyweight championship before he decided to retire from MMA and return to WWE.
According to reports, Bellator is interested in signing CM Punk, if he wanted to try changing careers. It has been a well known fact that Punk is a big fan of MMA, where he is frequently seen at UFC events. As many already know, he recently walked out on WWE after some disagreements.
Triple H, Stephanie McMahon and two of their children attended an MMA class taught by former WWE diva Eve Torres and her husband. Some pictures were posted on Instagram and Twitter, where the girls took a subtle jab at Matt Hardy while showcasing a choke hold.
UFC gave Ric Flair the star treatment when the former WWE and WCW champion attended one of their live events this past week. Security made sure to keep fans away from Flair, who sat with former NFL running back Herschel Walker and some other friends.
Bobby Lashley revealed on Twitter that he was pulled over by a cop, but was freed because the law enforcement officer was a big fan of wrestling and recognized him from his days in WWE.
The feeling within the wrestling industry is that Bobby Lashley won't be returning any time soon. While a UFC stint seems highly unlikely, the former WWE star is doing well enough in MMA to keep pursuing his career in the sport.
"I don’t know anything about [Bobby] Lashley. Lashley just looks very synthetic to me. That’s just my opinion and I could be completely wrong, and if I am, I apologize to him and his family. No, I don’t apologize to him and his family. God bless him! (laughs). If he’s clean, Jesus man, you’re absolutely phenomenal, a physical specimen. But you look at him. Lashley, it would be hard to believe a guy with that muscle structure is clean."
