Olympic Gold Medalist Kyle Snyder: ‘I want to fight UFC’
The youngest American to ever win a gold medal in wrestling, Kyle Snyder (20-years-old), wants to compete in MMA!!! It appears he was inspired after attending UFC 203 this past weekend in Cleveland, Ohio (you know that place with the annoying basketball player #EffLebron). He actually sent out the following tweet:
I want to fight @ufc

The Ohio State junior had an interview with Fox Sports and said the following:
“I want to fight. Basically what that tweet means. I love wrestling, I really do. I would want to continue wrestling but I want to do both at the same time. I want to pursue my wrestling career, wrestle in World Championships and the Olympic games, but if the scheduling could work out and I can become an elite fighter, then I want to fight in the UFC as well.”
Kyle would be the most decorated American wrestler in the UFC (sorry, Henry Cejudo and Daniel Cormier). I say UFC because I am assuming he would get signed since CM Punk just got paid 500K for a couple of minutes of work. They can’t pass up a guy with some of the best takedowns in history, can they?
Watch out fight world because Kyle Snyder is here to kick butt and chew bubblegum and he is all out of bubblegum!!!
