UFC Champion Amanda Nunes 'Open to Join'
Mixed martial arts and professional wrestling have similarities. Despite WWE being scripted, the fighters and wrestlers are the most athletic performers in the world. They promote their fights through trash talking and do things in a way to grab the audience's attention. Maybe that is why we see these athletes transition from time to time.

As of late, we witnessed Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baslzer transition from UFC to WWE.It seems that it is looking more and more in favor of having combat stars to enter the entertainment business. And why not? They bring their fan base with them like Amanda Nunes. Sports Illustrated asked her if she would go to WWE.
"Not right now, but maybe later when I retire. I'm open to it. Why not? I could try something new."
The two-division UFC Champion is 31 years old, and there is not a woman, as of yet, that can defeat her. Amanda has defeated Baszler and Rousey in the Octagon. Having Nunes in the WWE roster would boost the Women's division to another level.
