The Rock in the UFC?
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson had interest in becoming a UFC fighter. Long before CM Punk entered the octagon, The Rock apparently wanted a UFC career. In a tweet on Sunday, the former WWE Champion admitted he considered UFC 10 years ago. The plan, according to Johnson, was to train for two years before officially starting. Rock, however, “smartened up” and didn’t continue the UFC path.
