Olympic Gold Medallist Gable Steveson 'Open For All Options' Amid WWE & UFC Interest

Steveson is leaving all doors open

Olympic Gold Medallist Gave Steveson says he is leaving all doors open as he considers his future. 

Steveson, who won the Gold Medal in the 125 kilograms division of the men's freestyle competition at the Tokyo Olympics last week, has been linked with making a move into either WWE or UFC once his amateur wrestling career is over.

The 21-year-old is considering every opportunity that now comes his way.

Speaking with MMAFighting's Damon Martin, Steveson said: "What is next for Gable Steveson is, I’m really not sure. I’m open for all options. 

"Like I said, I’m going to go explore every single option I can. I’m going to go put my name on every single desk and go out there and make sure that the Gable Steveson name is well known and it’s going to influence the next culture that comes up.

"There’s a lot of places to go, I don’t know what’s next for me. WWE, UFC, football, go back to school, who knows? But at the end of the day, the best decision will come to my family and who knows when it may come.

"Most definitely, I’m a fight fan. Who wouldn’t want to be the baddest man on the planet? Who wouldn’t want to hold that UFC championship belt? I’m holding the gold medal and I’m the baddest wrestler on the planet. Why wouldn’t I want to go out there and be the baddest UFC heavyweight champion?"
