Khabib Nurmagomedov revealed the WWE have tried to sign him after he was temporarily suspended by the UFC.
And, in his typically menacing style, the undisputed lightweight champion has vowed to smash wrestling legend Brock Lesnar if he makes the switch.
Nurmagomedov is currently locked in a Mexican stand-off with the MMA promotion after threatening to quit following his victory over Conor McGregor at UFC 229.
Although the Russian convincingly beat his bitter rival, the ensuing brawl marred the performance as members of Nurmagomedov’s team entered the octagon to attack the battered Irishman.
Immediately after the brawl, UFC President Dana White threatened to suspend Zubaira Tukhugov for his part in the attack. But his teammate vowed to also quit the promotion if Tukhugov was released.
Sesning an opportunity, WWE chairman Vince McMahon appears to have reached out to the 30-year-old with the intention of utilising his brawling abilities in a squared circle instead.
Nurmagomedov Tweeted from his official account: “@WWE ask me to jump inside.
“What do you think guys? #SmashLesnar #FakeFights”
