WWE’s Rezar Challenges UFC Fighters After UFC 302 Event in Newark, NJ

The heavyweights of UFC could soon be sharing the Octagon or a wrestling ring with WWE Superstar Rezar if the Final Testament member gets his wish. 

UFC 302 took place on June 1, at the Prudential Center, in Newark, New Jersey. While the show was airing, Rezar took to Twitter to make clear he’s eager to face some UFC talent. The former Tag Team Champion also made reference to his ongoing feud with The New Day ahead of a showdown on the June 3, episode of WWE Monday Night Raw.

Rezar boasts an impressive 6-2 record in the cage with his most recent fight being at Bellator 130. At the October 2014 event, Rezar lost to Daniel Hallemore in the second round by TKO. His most recent victory was at BAMMA 15 where he defeated Oli Thompson in seconds with a Guillotine Chike in the first round. 


WWE Superstars can often be found at UFC events with CM Punk, Montez Ford, Bianca Belair, Rey Mysterio, and Randy Orton all being spotted since the merger in September 2023. Similarly, UFC fighter Michael Chandler appeared on the February 19 edition of WWE Monday Night Raw and used his time on the show to call out Conor McGregor.
