Rumor Mongering

I can't resist passing this rumor along.

According to Media Takeout, a website that may or not be reliable, Ray Lewis is in talks to fight with the UFC:

According to a person who works at U.F.C., the Baltimore Ravens star linebacker and the league have been negotiating for months and are close to closing the deal. The insider told, "Ray Lewis was an All-American wrestler in high school, and he's just an all around bad a**. He'll fit in perfectly here."

And the insider claims that the deal wouldn't interfere with Ray's NFL career. He explained to MediaTakeOut.con, "We're not looking to sign him on full-time, just a match or two a year - and he can handpick the opponent ... He has such a big name that it will do wonders for the sport."

This would be so awesome, mainly to watch him get KO'ed in a widely watched fight.  I am skeptical about this one, but who knows?  It would probably be the most talked about fight in UFC so far if he came in.
