From UFC to A-Team to ... WWE?

More on urdirt.com

The WWF, now WWE, was always a guilty pleasure for many adolescent males. Who can forget men built like super heroes who exhibited comic book dialogue and death defying action? Of course, once the veil was lifted and the action was known to be scripted, it quickly became a novelty and combat sports like boxing, kickboxing, and now, MMA become much more widely respected.

And, as of late, a few of the elite stars of WWE have used their wrestling experience and personality, as a bridge to MMA. Former boxing heavyweight stars have used 'rassling as a form of needed income for decades. And though it used to hold a stigma of shame for once great champions it now is a way to attract new fans. Just look at non-heavyweight Floyd Mayweather Jr.

But is Quinton "Rampage" Jackson serious about a transition from UFC to WWE? What's next Vince McMahon vs. Dana White, with the loser having to forfeit a fighter to the other's promotion?

Say it ain't so, Jackso (tongue in cheek).
