Many names from the world of MMA have made the crossover into professional wrestling. Names such as Ken Shamrock, Ronda Rousey, and Dan Severn all spring to mind, and they potentially could be joined by Khabib Nurmagomedov one day in the future, according to his manager Ali Abdelaziz.
Speaking to TMZ Sports, Abdelaziz teased a potential transition to Wrestling for the retired UFC star, saying:
"Let’s be real, [if] any of these soft steroid freaks wanted to go ahead and have a wrestling match with Khabib and they want to get beat up for real, they know who they need to call. He’ll go there and he’ll smash John Cena’s face. No problem. He's going to go in there and smash somebody. After he's done with them, they'll never want to wrestle him. Because they understand there is levels to this. He is not going to be a friend, joking – it's going to be real.”
Khabib would be a money signing for any wrestling company that’s for sure, but based on his manager’s quotes, it seems like it’d take a lot of smartening up of Khabib’s camp before any switch would become reality.
