UFC Heavyweight legend Junior dos Santos recently spoke with MMA Junkie for an interview, during which he spoke about really enjoying wrestling and whether or not he has inked a deal with AEW.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.

Says he hasn’t signed a contract yet with AEW but he would be open to it: "Not yet – but maybe.The one responsible for this is this man right there, Dan Lambert. He brought some of us to the shows at AEW, and I was just impressed with that. I remember I enjoyed watching some pro wrestling matches, but I wasn’t really following it. Once I was there and I could see how things worked, I was impressed and I said, ‘Man, this is amazing. I want to be a part of it. I want to be in that ring, too.’"

Says he’s really enjoying pro-wrestling: "So things started to happen, and here we are, close to our debut. Why not? I’m not going to say no. I really enjoy this. I’m happy doing it. I’m enjoying participating in this and the challenge it’s been for me. It feels great, actually. I was looking forward to having a next fight and here I am, close to fighting again in a pro wrestling match, and I feel good about it."
