Andre Berto wants to be a part of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) roster.
Berto, who is a former WBC and IBF champion as well as a former WBA interim title holder, is willing to tackle a new sport. “The Beast” is hoping UFC President Dana White gives him a call to talk business.
While Berto hasn’t had a professional mixed martial arts (MMA) bout, his brother Edson is a 30-fight veteran. In fact, Edson has competed for Bellator, Strikeforce and EliteXC.
“I want all of ‘em! Dana White, you know me, you know my family’s been in MMA for a while, I’m coming to the UFC so Dana White, call me! Tell Dana to call me. I’ll go to the UFC. I wanna be the first fighter ever to be a world champion in boxing and go get a UFC world title. It’s never been done. That’s never been done. Tell Dana to holler at me!”
Berto has faced high-level competition in boxing. He’s fought the likes of Mayweather, Victor Ortiz, Robert Guerrero, and Shawn Porter. He’s garnered a record of 31-5.
