Andre Berto Looking To Crossover To UFC: ‘Tell Dana White To Call Me’ (VIDEO)
Andre Berto probably doesn’t have the household name that Conor McGregor has, but he definitely wants a part in a crossover type deal as he looks to take his talents to the Octagon.
The veteran boxer told TMZ on Tuesday that he is looking to make the transition from the ring to the Octagon. He also plans on adding a UFC title to his trophy case.
“I want all of ’em!” Berto said. “Dana White, you know me, you know my family’s been in MMA for a while, I’m coming to the UFC so Dana White, call me! Tell Dana to call me. I’ll go to the UFC.
“I wanna be the first fighter ever to be a world champion in boxing and go get a UFC world title. It’s never been done. That’s never been done. Tell Dana to holler at me!”
Andre Berto owns a pro boxing record of 31-5 and his brother, Edson Berto, fought in Bellator and compiled a record of 17-12-1.
