Alan Jouban Said He Would Fight The Big Show

While The Big Show may have his hands full with former NBA champion Shaquille O'Neal, there are other non-wrestling athletes that want to have a crack at the "World's largest athlete."

UFC fighter Jouban spoke to a TMZ reporter and said that if he were to challenge anyone in WWE to an MMA fight, it would be The Big Show.

"I'd fight The Big Show," Jouban said. "He's huge and I think the spectacle alone of having the biggest professional athlete in sports fight me, a 170-pounder, I think it would be good. You put us in a cage and I would just stick and move, stick and move. I'll leg kick the crap out of The Big Show."

The 34-year-old also commented on CM Punk's UFC debut in which he lost to Mickey Gall at UFC 203.

"I give [CM Punk] props," Jouban said. "He went in there and stepped in the cage, absorbed the moment and he did it. But he wasn't ready."

Jouban sports a 14-4 record as a professional MMA fighter as well as a 5-2 record in the UFC. He last fought Belal Muhammad in July at UFC Fight Night: dos Anjos vs. Alvarez and won via unanimous decision. The Big Show has said that he and O'Neal will fight at next year's WrestleMania, which will take place in Orlando, Florida, where O'Neal spent the first few years of his NBA career.
