Eric Spicely isn’t the regular known face among UFC fighters. His uninspiring UFC run, comprising of 2  wins and 4 losses  ended when UFC announced his release earlier this year in August.

However Eric now looks to make the jump from fighting for the biggest MMA organisation to fighting for the biggest pro wrestling organisation, the WWE.

In his latest tweet, Spicely broke the news that he has given a WWE tryout. He now looks to join the list of athletes who have made the transition from the Octagon to pro wrestling.

It is to be noted that prior to his career in MMA, Spicely was a professional wrestler, trained by Biff Busick. He competed for Beyond Wrestling often teaming with Chuck O’Neil and Matt Riddle.

Spicely had an undefeated professional record of 8-0 while competing exclusively for CES MMA in his native Rhode Island. He was then added as one of the 16 light heavyweight fighters invited to the cast of The Ultimate Fighter 23.
