Bill Goldberg Claims He Turned Down a Fight with Alberto Del Rio

Post by Kingfedor on Mon Mar 23, 2015 10:53 pm


Bill Goldberg appeared on Ariel Helwani's MMA Hour this afternoon and the sole purpose was for Bill Goldberg to talk about his relationship with GLORY. That relationship has been much-publicized over the past few months after GLORY learned about Goldberg's admiration for the sport of kickboxing and the organization itself. Goldberg, of course, still trains seriously and there has been talk about a possible fight between Goldberg and an unnamed opponent.

According to Goldberg on the show the fight that was offered to him was none other than Alberto Del Rio/Alberto el Patron/Rodriguez, or the guy that was formerly Dos Caras Jr. and fought Mirko Cro Cop. The fight was offered to Goldberg for May 8th but he decided that it wasn't the right direction that he'd like to see GLORY move in but remains steadfast that he wants to work with GLORY in some capacity, possibly even fight if the situation was right. Apparently a fight with Del Rio was a bit too much of a freakshow fight for him to justify it.

Goldberg reiterated that he is willing to do whatever it takes to work with GLORY and to help promote the brand, even if it means working in the front office, hosting shoulder programming or appearing as a commentator on events. While Goldberg's heyday in WCW was just under 20 years ago now he still commands a loyal following and has been involved in Mixed Martial Arts and sports since departing the WWE. It'll be interesting to see where this goes from here.

Bill Goldberg was talking about fighting in mma for years and never did it.

Same deal here. He will talk about fighting for GLORY but never do it.

Respect to Bill for putting the the integrity of the sport first. That silly Navy vs. Air Force match they had at the last event was bad enough. We don't need freaks. There's plenty of that in UFC.

Those idiots at Spike TV are behind all this gimmick shit with Bellator and Glory.

Glory was awesome before it went to America and became some cheesy American kickboxing org.... they changed the 8 man tournaments down to 4 man... Honestly couldn't give a fuck what Mike Tyson thinks.

Tyson is a shill and a disgrace to boxing. He was never good. He beat a bunch of cans.
