The Rock says he considered an MMA career

therock1Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson appeared on the UFC Unfiltered podcast that dropped on Thursday and stated that he considered an MMA career roughly ten years ago. “There was a time there where I thought, man, I achieved everything I wanted to achieve in WWE, my movie career is floundering a little bit, what do I do?” Johnson said. “I was relatively still young, I think I was 34. I thought, oh well maybe UFC. Maybe I should do something like that…

“In my head, I felt like it was at least a two-year process for me to even get in the [cage], let alone the UFC,” Johnson said. “I wasn’t quite too sure what to do or what kind of people to put around me at the time, so the idea kind of fizzled out and I continued to stay on the path of movie making.” Listen to the full podcast at UFC.com.

Powell’s POV: I haven’t had a chance to listen to the podcast yet, so the quotes come from an MMAFighting.com recap. The same podcast hosted by Matt Serra and Jim Norton also includes CM Punk announcing that he will fight at UFC 203.
