The UK Sun recently interviewed Intercontinental Champion Dean Ambrose and the interesting line in the article refers to a potential fight in UFC. Ambrose would not be opposed to following in the footsteps of names like Brock Lesnar, Dave Bautista and CM Punk if the money is right. Ambrose said, “I’ll fight anyone for enough money.”
Apparently, he is serious because he added, “Give me half-a-million dollars. Put them in the ring, I’ll do it right now, I’ll do it tonight.” Unfortunately for Ambrose, I don’t think that the fight is possible until after his WWE contract expires. WWE made a special exception for Lesnar but that’s likely not going to happen for anyone else under contract. If/when he leaves WWE, I’m sure he’ll get a nice offer from a company like Bellator.
The interview then moved on to non-WWE topics including his love for mountain biking. He noted that he crashed his bike very badly about a week ago. “I thought I was going to die. I fell over the handlebars, full on ninja roll, I flew like 8ft into the air.”
