51-year-old Michael Irvin says that not only does he want to set up a celebrity MMA tournament he also wants to participate in it. Don’t rule it out, either.

Dude is a HUGE UFC fan…

And still has some serious guns…

Speaking to TMZ a couple of days ago, Irvin expressed his deep desire to throw hands inside the cage.

“I train MMA, man. I want to do it. I want to get in there one time. My wife says I’m her mule and she can’t have her mule out there getting hurt. I gotta bring her her money. She won’t let me do it.”

“I actually wouldn’t mind getting in and having a fight. Oh my God, I would love to take a fight.”

While Irvin knows there is no way he will ever be able to fight with the pros, he has an idea that I would certainly watch the hell out of if it were to ever actually happen.

“What I wish they would do is maybe some amateur MMA fighting, celebrity style, this celebrity against that celebrity. Let me find me a couple dudes that have maybe said something I don’t like and we can get up in that ring. I would whoop somebody up, man. I would enjoy that. I just love the sport.”

Something tells me that another former NFL wide receiver, Chad Johnson, would also be very down with this venture.


Listen to Irvin passionately talk about his idea below…

This really needs to happen. Dana?

Before settling down at BroBible, Douglas Charles, a graduate of the University of Iowa (Go Hawks), owned and operated a wide assortment of websites. He is also one of the few White Sox fans out there and thinks Michael Jordan is, hands down, the GOAT.
