Carlos Correa Wants to Fight in UFC and Every Baseball Fan Should Be Rooting for This
By Michael Luciano
Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa seems to have his post-baseball life all planned out, but his plans are definitely not what you were thinking of.
The 25-year-old infielder and MMA diehard claims that he could cross over into the UFC, adding that he "would love to try" sticking in two sports.
You might not get to see pitchers throw missiles at his head, but there is a chance that Correa will get in the ring with Jon Jones, which would end with the Astros star getting pulverized.
Correa, who is coming off of a season in which he hit .279 with 21 home runs and 59 RBIs, has the height and size to make a name for himself in the light heavyweight division given his 6-4 frame.
Unfortunately, Correa might not have the strength to stand up in the octagon. Correa has constantly struggled with injuries, including a rib injury he suffered when he was getting a massage at home.
Getting punched in the face as hard as possible by Conor McGregor might be a little more painful than a massage, so Correa might not have the most illustrious career in MMA.
