Andre Berto, #8 Welterweight in the US with a 31-5 record, wants to be the first male world champion boxer to also win a UFC title. Holly Holm is the first female to achieve this elite status. Holly defender her titles in boxing 18 times in three weight classes. In 2015, she won the UFC Women’s Bantamweight title from Ronda Rousey, one of the fiercest competitors in the UFC at the time.
After McGregor, MMA fighter, demonstrated he can hold his own in a ring against arguably the best boxer of his generation, Andre Berto wants his chance at getting into the cage. In the clip below, Andre explains his family has competed in MMA. His father Dieuseul competed at UFC 10 in 1996, his brother James Edson competed in Strikeforce, EliteXC, and Bellator MMA, and his sister Revelina was eliminated in the entry round of The Ultimate Fighter season 18. All this comes after the Mayweather VS McGregor fight from this past Saturday. Which male boxer will be the first to step into the octagon? Will more MMA fighters be entering the ring?
