WWE and MMA fans often exhibit distinct differences, but the recent UFC event in Miami, Florida, showcased a rare instance of crossover. Roman Dolidze, a Georgian native competing in the middleweight rankings at UFC Florida, utilized a calf slicer and almost completed locking the STF, a move reminiscent of John Cena’s signature submission hold. Dolidze’s opponents, Jack Hermansson, was left helpless as the referee was forced to stop the bout due to vicious strikes.

Notably, Shayna Baszler and Gregory Helms, both superstars from the pro wrestling world, immediately drew comparison between the fight’s finish and John Cena’s famous STF move. This fusion of MMA and professional wrestling has raised questions about the authenticity of combat sports and the fluidity between disciplines. Dolidze’s application of the STF variation during his TKO victory has, surprisingly, garnered attention from both MMA and pro wrestling enthusiasts.

John Cena, the 16-time World Champion and stalwart of WWE, has not yet responded to the comparisons, but the possibility remains that he may do so. This incident serves as a testament to the significance of pro wrestling moves in real-life combat, blurring the lines between various disciplines and demonstrating their residual impact. The potential for a crossover event, featuring a WWE legend in the Octagon, is an intriguing prospect, leaving fans to ponder the possibility of John Cena making a one-time appearance in the UFC.
