Damian Priest Reveals He Was In Talks For An MMA Fight Before Joining WWE



During a recent appearance on “The Rob Brown Show,” WWE World Heavyweight Champion Damian Priest opened up about his passion for MMA and his close call with actually stepping into the octagon.

Priest was considering an MMA fight before signing with WWE in 2018. He said,

“I love MMA. I’m a fan and have always been (a fan). I was trained. There was a time, before I signed with WWE, that I didn’t think I would make it here. I was in talks to do a smaller scale event. I was going to fight in a cage. I was going to start training, I had talked to trainers, and I was going to get the ball rolling. WWE called and I was like, ‘Never mind.’ [Laughs]. No need to do all that. I have always been a fan. I still enjoy, on occasion, sparring, but at this point of my life, I’m all in on WWE and that’s it.”
