White Shoots Down Ray Lewis Rumors

I told you I refused to buy into this Ray Lewis crap…

The rumors started floating around courtesy of MediaTakeout, who reported through “inside sources” on Friday that Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis was on the verge of signing a contract with the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Whether or not it was some kind of joke from the website is yet to be known.

However in an interview this past weekend with MMA on Tap partner site, Rogers Sportsnet, UFC President Dana White dispelled the notion that Lewis may have been entering the sport of mixed martial arts via the UFC.

“Believe me, if Ray Lewis was going to sign in the UFC, I’d be aware of it,” White said during the interview. “No it’s not true. It’s the first I’ve heard of it. It’s a bullshit story.”

You can watch Sportsnet’s ‘Showdown’ Joe Ferraro’s talk with White in the videos section of the site.
