WWE Star Drew McIntyre Believes Khabib Nurmagomedov Would Be "Huge Star For Us Too"

WWE superstar Drew McIntyre believes that now-retired former UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov could find similar success in the sports entertainment world.

Speaking with TMZ Sports, the Scottish star and former WWE champion think that Nurmagomdeov could do quite well for himself in the wrestling world. Even going as far as to say that if the former undefeated king of the UFC's lightweight division wasn't comfortable speaking, the company could provide him with a mouthpiece such as Paul Heyman.

We’ve got a few talented people that can carry the load when it comes to talking," McIntyre told TMZ Sports (h/t BJPenn.com). "I know MVP has done a heck of a job for (Bobby) Lashley. Maybe that’s another name to throw in the hat. But yeah, he’s such an amazing performer in the UFC. If he can’t quite figure out that part, we’ll make it work. That’s what we’re all about. Hands with the positives and hiding the negatives. I think the fans would be very excited to see him,”
