Lola Vice began her dream of becoming WWE superstar by signing with the company in June last year. In the year since then, Vice has already impressed fans in a big way as she has mixed martial arts experience. She also addressed if she wants to cross over to the UFC one day.
Vice has a background in MMA as she was with Bellator, where she had an impressive 4-1-0 fight record. Her MMA skills have certainly come in handy in NXT as well. That said, many wonder if she will work in the UFC now that WWE and UFC merged together under the TKO Holdings umbrella.
While speaking to Jim Varsallone, Lola Vice was asked if she would compete in the UFC via TKO Group Holdings now that she’s under a WWE contract. Vice had some mixed feelings about it but didn’t turn it down either.
”Well, you know, I have mixed thoughts about that (making move to UFC via TKO) because right now, I’m very committed to being the best wrestler or superstar in the history of WWE and I’m a big believer that you have to stick to one path and commit to that and you can’t really do two, three, four and then just be okay in all of them. If I’m gonna do something, I’m gonna be the best at it. Maybe that’s in my cards in a while if Hunter wants me to do it, whoever my boss is, I will do what they want and of course I’ll be open to it. I love fighting. But right now, I’m completely dedicated to the WWE and that’s my only goal.”
Lola Vice squared off against Kelani Jordan at Halloween Havoc Night 2 to determine the winner of the Women’s Breakout Tournament. Both competitors had an equal chance to win the match, but it was ultimately Vice who came out on top.
We will have to wait and see when Lola Vice will decide to challenge Lyra Valkyria for the NXT Women’s Championship, as fans feel she will eventually be ready to become the face of the NXT women’s division.
