In a recent interview with ESPN, WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins discussed whether anyone on the UFC roster could make the transition to WWE.
Rollins also didn’t hesitate to throw shade at CM Punk who had an abysmal UFC career.
Punk fought twice in the UFC and lost both matches.
You can check out some highlights from the interview below:
On who could fight in the UFC: “No. They don’t have the stamina for it. They don’t fight every single weekend. This championship goes everywhere. It goes everywhere. It goes to like Biloxi. Especially the top stars over there, they are catered to a certain way. That’s great, that’s their style, that’s what works for them, I understand that, you fight maybe once or twice a year. You’re crazy, you fight three times a year. To fight over 100 times a year, make all those towns, still be able to train, still be able to do all the media, it’s an exhausting industry. I don’t want to knock Ronda Rousey because I love Ronda and she did a lot for our industry, women in our industry, and the fight industry in general, but it was tough for Ronda. She tried her damndest and it was hard for her. I’d love for somebody to come over and take a crack if you think you can hang, but it’s hard.”
On if he wanted to call out anybody: “I’ll call them all out. I don’t care. Try it out. I can’t do what they do. I’d go in there and get knocked out and choked out in two seconds. I’d probably do better than Punk [CM Punk], but I would still lose, most likely. They can’t come and do what we do either. They are the same umbrella, but two totally different worlds.”
