Goldberg talks McGregor, Lesnar, Punk

Goldberg had some interesting things to say about the crossover between WWE and UFC.

The former WWE and WCW star was interviewed on Submission Radio, an Australian combat sports podcast. He talked about CM Punk, Brock Lesnar, and of course, Conor McGregor. Goldberg found it hilarious that Randy Orton inadvertently called him by the wrong name.

"I thought the funniest thing I've ever seen was (Randy) Orton calling him 'Conor McDonald'. I think that is one of the funniest things I have ever seen," Goldberg said. "Hey man, you have to embrace it. It's the same crowd. One grows up and feeds into the other. You can't tell me, and I said this before, that 75-percent of the guys wouldn't die to be professional wrestlers that are fighting, and vice versa.”

The former NFL and CFL player turned wrestler said he wants to see Brock Lesnar fight again in the octagon.

"Absolutely, man (I want to see Brock fight in the UFC again). And I don't even know what that thing is he took," he said. "I never broached anything along those subject matters with Brock. That's his business.

While he wants to see another Lesnar MMA fight, he’s not so sure about another CM Punk fight.

"There's no question he should not fight in the UFC. That would be blasphemy," Goldberg said. "It would be a slap in the face to all the guys who work their asses off to make it to prelims on FOX, on undercards and on the main event card. At the end of the day, from a promoter's standpoint, from a competitor's standpoint, from his standpoint, there's no logic to him stepping in that octagon again.”
