Shinsuke Nakamura Turned Down UFC Offer

WWE Superstar Shinsuke Nakamura revealed in an interview with The Hindustan Times that he turned down an offer to fight for the UFC. Nakamura has a 3-1 MMA record. Below are some highlights.

Nakamura on getting an offer from the UFC: “Around 2005, UFC offered me a chance to fight for them. But, at that moment, I was under contract with NJPW and I decided to stay in pro-wrestling. It was a good opportunity, but I don’t regret my choice.”

On not having any plans to fight in MMA anytime soon: “You have to understand that I am 37-year old now. It has been a long time since my last proper MMA training and although I still train in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, it will take me at least one year to be ready for a proper fight. That is not something I want to do as I am happy in WWE.”
