UFC Heavyweight reveals he wants to join the WWE

Brock Lesnar is returning to the octagon this weekend as he takes a break from the WWE to face Mark Hunt at UFC 200 in his first fight in five years. 

Lesnar had to get special dispensation from the WWE to fight in what is certain to be the biggest UFC event of the year, and this is thought to be the only MMA fight he's having. 

On the complete other end of the spectrum, a UFC fighter wants to do the exact opposite to Lesnar and has come out publically and said that they fancy joining the WWE.

During an “open workout” media event in Las Vegas earlier this week to promote Thursday’s UFC Fight Night event, Roy Nelson revealed that giving it a go as a professional wrestler is something he wants to do.

Big Country added that he'd move to WWE as soon as he got the green light from top dogs at the UFC, namely Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta.

“I would love to go to WWE,” he said. “But, I think in our contracts we’re not allowed to do that. There are some people who get that little extra leeway. But, now I think everyone is kind of going that way, I might as well try it.”

“I’ll talk to Dana and say, ‘Hey, can we do this?’”

With Nelson's career slowly winding down this is the perfect chance for him to try and get one last big payday somewhere. The WWE love to have some real fighters on their roster - just look at how they treat Lesnar like some kind of superhuman - and Big Country could be a very good addition to the roster.

With the brand split coming up - the draft is in less than two weeks - WWE needs all the stars they can get. If they can bargain with the UFC, they might just have a shock one on their hands.
