WWE star, Kofi Kingston, was challenged to a "Jumping Contest" by MMA fighter, Kevin Randleman, during an interview with "Absolute Wrestling Radio". I listened to the interview and Randleman was clearly joking, but did talk about training as a professional wrestler and being very good at it. He said he could jump clear across the ring post to post and the hosts brought up Kofi Kingston’s jumping ability. That’s when Kevin said he would meet Kofi anywhere he wanted to and see who could jump further. You can listen to the interview HERE.
Former WWE diva, Victoria, posted an update in her latest BLOG regarding a move to MMA. She said the following:
"I have really increased my jiu-jitsu training. I was even training on vacation. Again, if you know me, I’m 1,000 percent about anything I do. Now that I’m back in Louisville, I’ve moved from a straight Jiu-Jitsu program into a full MMA training program. I have also been contacted by several agents, a couple of whom represent current and former UFC Champions. But I think that’s putting the cart in front of the horse. I think they think I can fill seats. I’ll sign with someone if and when I feel that I can be a top level competitor."
