ESPN recently interviewed former wrestler-turned-movie star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, and one of the subjects Rock commented on was MMA, specifically UFC.

Interview Excerpt

I can't really see him ever fighting in MMA but with his personality and charisma he could be a great promoter someday, and with his connections he already has I'd see him having no problem securing some great talent.

I doubt he would try... be a waste of time for him. I'm sure he makes far more from a movie every year or two, then he could make for what they would pay him to fight in the UFC.

no! no! no! we do not need to see promoters walk down to the octagon with there fighters like captain lue albano. let the rock make stupid movies and stay away from mma. we have enough bigmouths in the sport already.
