During a recent interview with TMZ Sports, Drew McIntyre commented on the possibility of former UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov coming to WWE. McIntyre said if he were to make the transition, Paul Heyman would be a good mouthpiece for the him. He said,
“[Khabib’s] so talented that I reckon he could make some noise, and if he can’t make the noise himself, we’ve got Paul Heyman. We’ve got a few talented people who can carry the load when it comes to talking.
MVP has done a heckuva job for [Bobby] Lashley. Maybe that’s another name to throw in the hat. But, [Khabib’s] such an amazing performer in the UFC, and if he can’t quite figure out that part, we’ll make it work.
We’re about enhancing the positives and hiding the negatives. I think the fans would be very excited to see him.”
