UFC Star Wants To Join WWE By 2021
In the last few years, a handful of UFC/MMA fighters have joined WWE or expressed interest with professional wrestling.
The next UFC fighter to express interest with the WWE is Colby Covington. He has a 15-2 MMA record.
Colby Covington’s over-the-top persona seems tailor-made for the world of professional wrestling, and he is already making plans on when and how he’d like to make the transition from the UFC Octagon to a WWE ring.
“I would say probably 2021,” Covington said on SB Nation’s “What the Heck” show. “Not this summer, but next summer. I’ve been practicing moves and really working on my promo and mic skills and just control and slowing things down and understanding the art of wrestling.
“I want to make sure when I go there I make the biggest splash possible, because I’m not here for a long time, I’m here for a good time and I’m not here to make friends, I’m here to make money. When I go over there I want to make Brink’s truck loads of money.”
