Next UFC Start to Transition To WWE

WWE was officially launched in 1953 as Capitol Wrestling Corporation (CWC). The name has, however, undergone several changes from WWWF (World Wide Wrestling Federation) in 1963 to WWF (World Wrestling Federation) in 1979 and eventually WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) in 2002.

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is an MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) company in Las Vegas, Nevada. The company is a subsidiary of Endeavor Group Holdings and is operated and owned by Zuffa, LLC. The company produces events globally that feature eight men’s weight divisions and four female weight divisions. All competitions in the events adhere to the Unified Rules of Martial Arts.

 The transfer of wrestlers from UFC to WWE run by Vince McMohan is no surprising news since it has been happening over the years.

Brock Lesner

One of the wrestlers making their way back to WWE sooner than expected considering the terms of his suspension from the square rings is the former UFC heavyweight champion, Brock Lesner. After the incident that happened the day after his fight with Roman Reigns, the WWE Universal Champion, at the Crown Jewel that involved him attacking some of the WWE crew members and Adam Pearce leading to his indefinite suspension and sue for a million-dollar fine by Vince McMohan, it was not expected that he would return to a WWE ring any time soon.

It was thought that the earliest Lesner would step into a WWE ring again would be in January 2022 after the beginning of the Royal Rumble at the Dome at America’s Centre. During the SmackDown on 26 December, Kayla Braxton officially announced that the Lesner return which was initially scheduled to be on 10 December would arrive sooner than expected since he was set to make an appearance in Next Friday’s SmackDown. The terms of Brock Lesner’s return or the conditions that led to his earlier-than-expected return are still not clear but what is clear is that the three-time WWE Universal Champion is set to make his entrance back to a WWE ring next Friday at SmackDown. Being a star on the ring, Lesnar’s returns is something fans and gamblers are following closely and even closely monitoring UFC picks to determine what the sportsbooks think of him. Last time it was rumurmed he might fight they had odds on him facing UFC legend and light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. Lesnar was the underdog at (+250)

Ronda Rousey

Another fierce former UFC female wrestler that is most likely to make her way back to WWE is Ronda Rousey. The former UFC Bantamweights Champion and former WWE Raw Women’s Championship winner has not been in WWE for quite some time now. This, however, might come to change soon as it seems Ronda Rousey might just be coming back to a WWE ring soon. In October, Becky Lynch, the current Raw Women’s Champion in her second reign and winner of the SmackDown Women’s Championship who is popularly known as “The man”, was being interviewed by TMZ sports and Ronda Rousey came up during the interview. Becky was asked if she had any advice to share with her former rival and she said “don’t (come back to WWE), cause I’m still on top, Ronda, you won’t like it” and added,” you won’t like it.”

Becky Lynch also suggestively challenged Ronda to make her way back to the WWE ring for Wrestlemania38 suggesting that she wanted to face her former rival, Ronda. The last time the two were in a ring together was during wrestlemania35, back in 2019, during a triple threat match that also involved Charlotte Flair that resulted in Becky as the winner and the new Raw Women’s Champion ripping the Raw Women’s Championship title from Ronda Rousey and the SmackDown Women’s Championship title from Charlotte Flair. Recently, the former WWE RAW Women’s Champion held a Facebook Live and talked about her WWE contract status.

She said that she wasn’t sure if she was still employed by the company and that it was a matter that concerned her lawyers. She had also mentioned, in one of her previous interviews, that she was not sure if she would make it back to the square ring but she would if she eventually felt like it. The statement she made then along with Becky Lynch’s calling to Ronda Rousey for a match in wrestlemania38 not forgetting her recent Facebook live are promising factors that the former UFC champion, Ronda Rousey, will surely make her way back to WWE ready to fight.
