The world famous gym ATT (American Top Team) has been the home of Bobby Lashley and Colby Covington. The former Bellator MMA heavyweight and current WWE Champion as well as the current UFC welterweight star honed their MMA skills at the ATT Gym in Coconut Creek, Florida.

In an interview with Helen Yee Sports, Bobby Lashley was asked about his former ATT teammate Colby Covington. Helen Yee asked Lashley how he thought Covington would fare in WWE. Bobby Lashley responded by saying:

«Well he plays the badass role, uh, “Lashley smiled and continued,” You know, when he started – and bless him – when he started, he was one of those guys. You already know, you’ve seen colby’s run and colby was beating everybody before. And he was one of those guys who just wasn’t getting a break. AND He came and spent a little stint with me at Impact Wrestling, and did some professional wrestling stuff.

“And I think that one of the guys started giving him some lines there for a while. And then people started hating him, and they started getting him the fights he wanted. So you already know, you can be mad at him for the things he said but you can’t be mad at him for the things he did. So, I think, for someone like him, He’s got that fanbase that he’s built like a badass. So, you never know. Never say Never«.

Bobby Lashley has not competed in the sport of MMA since October 2016. Lashley returned to WWE in 2018 and is the current WWE Champion. He successfully defended his title against WWE and WCW legend Goldberg, at WWE SummerSlam on Saturday, August 21, 2021.
