Carlos Correa, who was one of the most outspoken players on the Astros after the cheating accusations surfaced, put his name back in the headlines this week after he took to Twitter and trolled Aaron Judge.
Soon after the news of the New York Yankees possibly cheated in 2017 surfaced, Correa took to Twitter and reacted the same way Judge did back in November to their cheating accusations.
On Sunday, a Twitter user posted the cover of the New York Post that shockingly took the side of the Bronx Bombers in the situation.
That prompted former MLB player Chris Garcia to comment under it and call out Correa for being a ‘punk bitch.’ He even stated he needs to get his butt kicked in the Octagon as well.
Jokes on Garcia, because Correa already stated last month he wanted to get in an Octagon and get his butt kicked.
“Getting KO’d, I would love to know what that feels like in the octagon,” Correa said in an interview with the MMA Junkie podcast. “But also getting a KO. It’s hard to speak about it and talk about the adjustments fighters need to make when you’re on the sidelines. But when you’re actually in there feeling the power from your opponent, it’s tough to make those adjustments. It will be a different perspective if you’re able to get in that octagon.”
The 25-year-old is under contract to the Astros for $8 million this season and has a final year of arbitration available in 2021.
The 6-4, 215-pound Correa said he would nonetheless love to cross over into UFC.
“I would love to cross over into the UFC. I grew up boxing and I loved it, but I realized, ‘Man, in baseball, you don’t get hit as much,’” he said. “In boxing, I’m going to have to be constantly getting hit in the face and stomach in the ribs and that hurts. I stuck to baseball and it worked out well for me. But definitely I would love to try.”
