Report: WWE Interested In Bringing In Top UFC Fighter

Justin LaBar

F4Wonline.com is reporting WWE is interested in working with UFC fighter Chael Sonnen.

Sonnen, who suffered a loss to Anderson Silva on Saturday night, is being targeted by WWE to get involved in some fashion. There is no indication whether WWE wants the 35 year-old fighter to wrestle or play another role in the company.

Sonnen is friends with WWE Champion CM Punk. You might recall months ago when CM Punk wanted to escort Sonnen to the Octagon for a fight and WWE denied him permission to appear on UFC television.

Sonnen also has close ties to Stone Cold Steve Austin who has been bringing the UFC veteran out to his Broken Skull Ranch to work on strength and conditioning.
