In the past few weeks, former UFC Interim Welterweight Champion Colby Covington has said he would like to transition to WWE after he retires from MMA and challenged Drew McIntyre to a fight outside of the wrestling behemoth.
During a recent appearance on SB Nation's What The Heck podcast, Covington said WWE probably wouldn't sanction the match but that he would be willing to face The Scottish Psychopath in a "no sanctioned country."
The WWE Champion has a different location in mind as he told ESPN he would be willing to fight Covington in a bar and said he would "smash his head in."
McIntyre said: "In WWE I beat Brock Lesnar in five minutes in the main event of WrestleMania. How would he do in an MMA fight with Brock Lesnar? Probably not very good. So, if he wants this unsanctioned fight outside of WWE, I'm willing to fight him in a bar or something. There's a reason there's different weight classes. I'm about 100 pounds heavier than the guy, I'm a foot taller than the guy.
"I'm willing to have an actual fight with him if he wants an unsanctioned fight. It'll put more eyes on the product. Perfectly happy with me. I'll smash his head in. I'll shut him up. I'll break his jaw like Usman did. And then more people watch WWE."
