• The Rock Reveals What Would’ve Happened If He Fought In The UFC

As we reported before, Dwayne Johnson’s athletic-label Project Rock has become the official global footwear partner of the UFC.

This partnership kicked off at last night’s UFC 270 pay-per-view.

During an interview on UFC Live on ABC, The Rock revealed that he considered fighting in the UFC many years ago, but is glad he didn’t.

Below is what he had to say regarding what would’ve happened to him inside the Octagon and the Francis Ngannou vs. Ciryl Gane fight:

“UFC fighters, they step into that iconic Octagon and they look to establish their dominance and look to establish their legacy. Some become champion, some don’t.

This is a very unique match-up here, with two very unique individuals. I think a win here for either one will start to establish their legacy.

I think for me I’ll go back as a fan, and someone who has never competed in the Octagon, though I would have loved to many, many moons ago, although I would’ve got my face smashed in and I like my jaw where it’s at.”

As we noted before, Ngannou defeated Gane via unanimous decision in the main event of UFC 270 to become the undisputed UFC Heavyweight Champion.

Today would have been the 90th birthday of Old School WWWF Veteran Dominic DeNucci.

DeNucci wrestled for Vince McMahon Sr.’s World Wide Wrestling Federation (WWWF), that was later renamed World Wrestling Federation, on and off between 1967 and 1982.

He won the WWWF World Tag Team Championship with two different partners, but his most famous accomplishment was training Mick Foley & Shane Douglas, who eventually ended up becoming Wrestling Legends themselves.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE
