On the latest episode of the UFC Unfiltered, The Rock told Matt Serra and Jim Norton that he considered training to be an MMA fighter when he left WWE in 2004.
"There was a time there where I thought, man, I achieved everything I wanted to achieve in WWE, my movie career is floundering a little bit, what do I do? I was relatively still young, I think I was 34. I thought, oh well maybe UFC. Maybe I should do something like that," Johnson said.
The Rock revealed has he taken the decision to go to UFC it would have been a long road:
"In my head, I felt like it was at least a two-year process for me to even get in the [Octagon], let alone the UFC," said The Rock. "I wasn't quite too sure what to do or what kind of people to put around me at the time, so the idea kind of fizzled out and I continued to stay on the path of movie making."
Would The Rock have made a good UFC fighter?
