Dana White open to Jordan Burroughs UFC bow - Burroughs

Jordan Burroughs who is a London Olympic gold medalist and also a four-time world champion soundly defeated UFC welterweight contender and four-time NCAA champion Ben Askren at the Grapple at the Garden event in Madison Square Garden in New York last Monday.

Askren was dominated throughout the match and he failed to score even a single point. Burroughs won the fight by 11-0 technical fallout. This match clearly showed how dominant Burroughs was and a difference in wrestling pedigree between both the wrestlers.

Now UFC president Dana White also saw Jordan Burroughs dominant performance against a top UFC fighter and has said that he is willing to welcome the wrestling superstar into the Octagon with open arms.

Yeah, listen, I’m always interested in, you know, these guys that are considered the best athletes in the world in whatever it is they do wanting to come to the UFC,” White said on Tuesday’s edition of The Jim Rome Show. “Yeah, obviously I’d be very interested.”

He also shared his thoughts on Ben Askren and talked about his personal relations with him.

Askren is a very interesting guy,” White said. “He and I have a long history of smack talk between us, and then he retired and was interested in coming into the UFC, and I think the timing is everything, and the timing was right for him to come, and he’s been fun since he’s been here.“ (H/T – MMA Junkie)
