Sergio Ramos spotted at UFC as fans say Spain icon 'would fit right in Octagon'

Sports fans believe Sergio Ramos looked ‘right at home’ when he was spotted at UFC’s Fight Night in Jacksonville.

The former Real Madrid legend, who was also joined by Barcelona star Ferran Torres, was ringside to cheer on Spanish fighter Ilia Topuria. He proved to be a lucky charm as the Spaniard overcame Josh Emmett to win via a unanimous decision.

It was a wonderfully brutal and violent bout which kept everybody in the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena on the edge of their seat. Ramos was seen celebrating and posing for pictures with his fellow countryman after the fight.

However, considering his reputation for scything down opposition attackers and getting into the faces of his rivals, UFC fans believed Ramos would be perfect for the Octagon.

“Would love to see Sergio Ramos in an MMA fight, put that mean streak to good use lol,” one fan laughed. “Sergio Ramos is about to end up in UFC,” a second added.

“Dope to see Ferran Torres and Sergio Ramos out at the UFC Jacksonville Fight Night,” a third admirer said. However, some fans thought his appearance was more amusing than exciting, with one fan in particular tweeting “what is Sergio Ramos doing at a UFC event,” alongside a laughing face emoji.

If Dana White was considering an audacious move for the central defender, then he would be pleased to know he is currently a free agent. The World Cup winner’s contract with PSG expired at the end of last season.

His future is currently up in the air having been linked with moves to Saudi Arabia and the MLS. In February, the 37-year-old announced his retirement from international football having not represented Spain since a 3-1 victory over Kosovo in March 2021.

Ramos is considered to be one of the greatest defenders in history having won the World Cup, two European Championships, four Champions Leagues, five La Liga titles and two Spanish Cups. However, he is also known for the nine red cards he picked up over the course of his career.

He was no stranger to a risky challenge or an on-pitch scuffle. Considering he has kept himself in impeccable shape, very few would want to take him on in the Octagon.
