Most superstars has joined the UFC title run recently and this has really paved way for most superstars to imagine of becoming a UFC fighter and much more in aspiration. The WWE legend The Rock who is a Hollywood actor talked about joining force with the UFC and this has always been a trend in the whole world.

It is revealed that on the recent episode of UFC Unfiltered with Jim Norton and former UFC Welterweight Champion Matt Serra, The Rock made his intentions clear. According to, The Rock stated the following:

“There was a time there where I thought, man, I achieved everything I wanted to achieve in WWE, my movie career is floundering a little bit, what do I do? I was relatively still young, I think I was 34. I thought, oh well maybe UFC. Maybe I should do something like that.

One would need an electron microscope to find the number of instances, someone as removed from MMA as The Rock is, to make it to the UFC. Setting aside the WWE element, the only top-tier UFC fighter that comes to mind from a completely non-martial arts background is Jimi Manuwa, who made his MMA debut at 28.

When asked about how he planned to go about preparing for something like that, The Rock said, “In my head, I felt like it was at least a two-year process for me to even get in the [Octagon], let alone the UFC. I wasn’t quite too sure what to do or what kind of people to put around me at the time, so the idea kind of fizzled out and I continued to stay on the path of movie making.”

Anyway, lets see if it comes to pass or not. If it happens, he will be the third in number WWE superstar to become a UFC fighter as CM Punk and Brock Lesnar has paved the way.
