Olympic Gold Medalist Jordan Burroughs Teases Transitioning Into the UFC

“With all due respect. Each fighter has a respective discipline. Whether it be wresting, jiu jitsu, boxing, etc. I think we all can agree that no one in the UFC is the best in the world at his or her respective discipline. Of all the fighters in every organization, there are no Olympic Gold medalists competing. Why would there be? If you were the the best in the world at your respective discipline would you leave to pursue a completely different sport? Probably not. I could be completely wrong, but from my observation most people get into MMA for the financial opportunities.”
