5 Dream WWE vs UFC Matchups of All Time: WWE Legends and UFC Fighters
Professional wrestling and Mixed Martial Arts both come under scrutiny at such a time, and the competitors are put under the magnifying glass to figure how each would fare in a fight against the other.
Standing where both sports are at the moment, the two are at a peak with Vince McMahon's WWE securing a huge deal with Fox earlier in the year, which will see them fare well for many years to come, while UFC's UFC 229 pay-per-view was a giant success.
Something that no one can ever forget, is the fact that the two sports can never be truly compared. While Mixed Martial Arts is real, the sport of professional wrestling is fixed, in the sense that the result is predetermined.
However, the capabilities of the wrestlers in the ring cannot be doubted.
The wrestlers are trained professionals, and several are more than capable fighters in real life as well, as proved by the likes of Ken Shamrock, Brock Lesnar and Bobby Lashley, all of whom stepped into the Octagon and proved their capabilities.
In this article, we will be taking a look at five dream matches between WWE Legends and UFC Fighters, putting aside the fact that professional wrestling is fixed. For this, we will be taking into consideration the charisma and fighting ability of each star.
Without any further ado, let's get into it.
#5. The Undertaker vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov:
Khabib Nurmagomedov has proved himself to be the silent killer in terms of what he did to Conor McGregor during their bout at UFC 229. He dominated the former UFC Lightweight Champion in the bout, before forcing him to tap out.
The Undertaker is a legend in his own right in the WWE, and still wrestles to this day despite being over 50 years old.
The Dead Man and Khabib have something huge in common, and that's the fact that both fighters have a unique ability of controlling the room that they walk into. Despite Conor McGregor throwing around threats, Khabib did not do the same, and maintained his distant dignity.
