On Thursday, Astros shortstop Carlos Correa said on an MMA podcast that he would love to cross over and give his best shot in the UFC. Knowing Correa’s controversial standing in the league with his fellow players, certain players should be salivating for the opportunity to meet him in the octagon.
6. Athletics' Pitcher Mike Fiers
Fiers was the one who started it all. The former Astros World Series champ revealed to The Athletic that Houston stole signs en route to their 2017 title, and that definitely does not put him in a favorable light with his former teammates. Correa would probably love the opportunity to lock up with Fiers, but don’t expect the A’s pitcher to back down from his stance.
5. Nationals Pitcher Max Scherzer
Scherzer loves to talk trash when he is on the mound so it would be interesting to see how it would translate to the octagon. Although Scherzer got the best of Correa with a 2019 World Series championship, both guys would definitely jump at the chance to square off in a more intimate setting. Scherzer is 6-3 and 215 pounds in terms of frame, so he can matchup with Correa with no problem.
4. Yankees Outfielder Aaron Judge
