• Khabib Nurmagomedov Reveals WWE Has Contacted Him For An Appearance, Wants To Smash Brock Lesnar
Undefeated UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, who destroyed Conor McGregor in the biggest fight in UFC history, revealed on Twitter that WWE has contacted him for an appearance.
Below is what Khabib tweeted:

An interesting thing that should be noted in Khabib’s tweet is that he used #SmashLesnar.
This shouldn’t come as a surprise as Brock Lesnar is the second biggest draw in UFC history (after McGregor) and everyone wants to do something with the top draws in order to ensure a big paycheck.
Khabib & Lesnar would be a very interesting fight as both men have expertise in wrestling, but Khabib would have to gain about 100 lbs to reach Lesnar’s ‘UFC size’ (265 lbs).
