In a recent ESPN interview, wrestling sensation Cody Rhodes disclosed a surprising revelation from his past – a desire to step into the UFC octagon. The unexpected admission sheds light on Rhodes' secret dream, which he candidly shared with his wife, Brandi Rhodes, two years ago.

Rhodes, a WWE Superstar, openly acknowledged that his motivation for considering a UFC debut was primarily rooted in financial aspirations. Despite his background in wrestling, including high school and collegiate experience, Rhodes acknowledged his lack of fighting expertise.

"I told my wife I wanted to do one fight. I told her this two years ago, and this was when, I think, I was looking for some sort of massive financial windfall. I don't know what it was, but I told her I wanted to do one fight, and she absolutely let me know that would not be happening. So, unless you can convince her, it's not going to happen."

When probed about potential opponents for his debut, Rhodes displayed a self-deprecating sense of humor, stating, "Oh, give me the worst guy possible. Please do not... Just, like, give me a freebie up front."
