Reigning UFC middleweight champion, Israel Adesanya has plans to make the jump to professional wrestling one day.
Adesanya spoke with BT Sport's Caroline Pearce following his unanimous decision victory over Jared Cannonier in the main event of UFC 276 on Saturday night and explained why he'd be interested in doing something with the WWE or just in professional wrestling in general, later on in his career.
"I was a kid who grew up during the Attitude Era," Adesanya said (h/t MMA Junkie). “Definitely, that’s something I’ll try my hand at later on, just for fun. I’m not saying it’s going to be a full-time job, but I’m definitely going to jump in the WWE, or something along that line, just for the entertainment factor.
