Khabib Nurmagomedov tweets about WWE amidst UFC controversy


The fight between Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov was one of the most iconic bouts in the history of Ultimate Fighting Championship or UFC.

However, it was what transpired after the match that made more headlines than the actual bout as Khabib jumped out of the cage to attack McGregor’s coach while a couple of his teammates went in to attack Conor.

After this news broke out that UFC may release the teammate of Khabib who attacked the Irish Fighter, Khabib raised his voice in his support, saying that if his teammate is released, he’ll leave UFC too.

And then the UFC Lightweight Champion made the following tweet, asking fans what he should do if he gets an offer from the Biggest Wrestling Company in the world:

While there may be nothing to this tweet, you can never say never when it comes to wrestling, and it wouldn’t be a surprise if Khabib actually makes a WWE appearance somewhere down the line.

For now, this tweet from the Russian Fighter has reignited the discussion of MMA fighters switching careers and going to WWE. What do you think about Khabib possibly going to WWE? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section

    I don’t really have a problem with people crossing over into WWE from MMA. What I have a problem with is people crossing over, dressing like their still in MMA, and only having the gimmick of “this person used to do MMA.” That’s already the gimmick of three people on the roster and three more in NXT.

    ^ This.

    Last thing we need is another Lesnar, who is only there for the money, and has no respect for the business.

    What is “Shish” Khabib, up to now…

    well, the fact he calls it #fakefights doesnt seem to be a glowing appreciation for sports entertainment. He’ isnt a big name like McGregor whom id really like to see in WWE, so i dont see how WWE has or would have any interest in him.
