WWE Star Has Lifelong Dream To Fight In The UFC

A rising young WWE star has visions of fighting in the UFC one day.

Julius Creed of the Creed Brothers tag team in WWE was a standout collegiate wrestler at Duke, who was signed to a contract with no pro wrestling experience.

Since then, Julius and his brother Brutus have been NXT Tag Team Champions and have been a very impressive addition to the WWE Raw roster over the last six months.

When watching a Creed Brothers match, fans are often left in awe at the displays of power shown by Julius & Brutus while Julius isn’t afraid to show his incredible leaping ability as well. In a four-team tag team match on the February 5th edition of WWE Raw, Julius ran in the ring, jumped to the top rope, and did a somersault dive on the floor, which is incredible for anybody to do, much less somebody that’s as big as him.

While Julius has big aspirations in WWE, he also has expressed an interest in competing in the UFC. Considering that Endeavor owns both WWE & UFC in a company called TKO Group, perhaps that kind of crossover could happen in the future.

Does WWE’s Julius Creed Want To Fight In The UFC?

In an interview with Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp, Julius Creed spoke about the possibility of stepping into the UFC cage one day.

“I had this idea driving down last night, ‘if I get a question on media day, I’m going to spin it as anybody that works for TKO or Endeavor can get it.’ It’s been a lifelong dream.”

“I take a lot of pride in living my life, not to sound cliche, but no regrets. In a way, I look back and I’m proud of everything I did. In 2020, when I decided to come back and wrestle again on the Olympic scene, my older brother said, ‘Are you sure you want to do that? It broke your heart. It was like the worst breakup you could go through.’ I said yeah, because I can live with that again. I can live with knowing that I wasn’t good enough on a given day.”

“I don’t think I can live without not knowing. I want to seek the truth. That’s one of those things where I’m curious where I fall. Maybe I’ll go out one time and take a fight and then go, ‘I know where I fall and I don’t want to do this ever again,’ or maybe it’s something I love. I want to live my life with no regrets.”

As for a possible WWE-UFC crossover event, Julius thinks maybe the doors are open for that to happen.

“It seemed like it’s so far-fetched. My time out at AKA with Daniel Cormier, Luke Rockhold, Cain Velasquez, I spent some time in Oklahoma City with Rafael Lovato Jr. I’m still in touch with a lot of those guys. The plan at the time was always like, ‘You can always make a big name at WWE and then come over to fight after, but if you fight, you can’t always jump over.’”

“Now that both are real possibilities and everything is coming to light. I remember 2018, I took a picture of Daniel Cormier, he had the UFC Light Heavyweight Title and a WWE Title at his house. I took a picture of them together and I said, ‘decisions.’ When the TKO merger got announced, I reposted that again.”

“My life has kind of come full circle and it’s maybe open doors that I thought were close and maybe they are open again. I’m super passionate about what I’m doing, I’m excited to be on the WWE front. There is a lot to accomplish in this world right now. If I did hop over too soon, I think I would have regrets on this front.”

Julius and his brother Brutus are a part of the WWE Raw brand.
