Rus­sian re­veals WWE fight of­fer

Herald on Sunday - - IN OTHER NEWS -

UFC pres­i­dent Dana White pulled the pin on Tukhugov’s next fight sched­uled for Oc­to­ber 27 be­fore re­veal­ing he was con­sid­er­ing ban­ning him.

The move didn’t sit too well with the Rus­sian cham­pion, who threat­ened to quit the pro­mo­tion if his team-mate is re­moved.

With the UFC star’s fu­ture hang­ing in the bal­ance, he has re­vealed he has been ap­proached for a block­buster fight. Nur­magome­dov has claimed the WWE have ap­proached him.

The world’s largest wrestling pro­mo­tion has wasted no time in go­ing af­ter the in­de­mand Rus­sian and wants him to be­come the lat­est UFC star to make the switch.

He would join the likes of Ronda Rousey and Brock Les­nar as fighters who have made the shock de­ci­sion to change al­le­giance. And he ap­peared to im­me­di­ately set his sights on for­mer UFC heavy­weight king and for­mer WWE cham­pion Les­nar.
