Gable Steveson Teases Move To MMA, Tags UFC President Dana White In Cryptic Post

Recent Olympic gold medal victor, Gable Stevenson has teased a potential transition to professional mixed martial arts following his wrestling exploits in Japan at this year’s summer Olympic games — and has received some support from fellow wrestling standout and former ONE Championship and Bellator welterweight champion and former UFC contender, Ben Askren.

The 21-year-old Steveson scooped Olympic gold in the men’s heavyweight finale against three-time and reigning world champion, Georgia’s, Geno Petriashvili. Earlier in the games, Steveson defeated defending Olympic champion, the decorated Turkey native, Taha Akgul. With his 10-8 victory over Petriashvili to win gold, Steveson improved his record to 35-6.

Posting a rather cryptic tweet last night, Steveson took to his official Twitter account where he posted a waving hand emoji, as well as tagging UFC president, Dana White — amid recent speculation and calls for him to make a move to professional mixed martial arts. 

Following his gold medal-winning performance, Steveson received support from the abovementioned, Askren — who claimed that if the Indiana native received training for a period of 18-months in mixed martial arts, nobody would be able to defeat him.

Give @GableSteveson 18 months training MMA and tell me who on earth is beating him?” Askren tweeted. “Freaking NO ONE.

Of note, Olympians who have transitioned to professional mixed martial arts that have enjoyed tremendous success include former two-weight champions, Daniel Cormier and Henry Cejudo, as well as middleweight title challenger, Yoel Romero, former Pride FC two-weight champion and Grand Prix winner, Dan Henderson, as well as two-time Olympic gold medalist, PFL standout, Kayla Harrison, former UFC champions, Randy Couture and Mark Coleman, as well as bronze medalist, inaugural UFC bantamweight titleholder, Ronda Rousey. 

Still just 21 years of age, Steveson has enjoyed a splendid, gold-laden career as an amateur wrestler, which includes victories in two Big Ten Championships, an NCAA Division I championship win this year, to go with his Pan American championship win in Guatemala this year — and his recent gold medal success in Tokyo, Japan.

Ross Markey

An MMA fan since 2011 and covering the sport since 2016, Ross Markey has built himself into a top journalist in combat sports.

First catching on to MMA and the UFC in particular back when Brock Lesnar fought Shane Carwin, and even more so when he fought Alistair Overeem back in 2011, Ross really became enchanted with the sport from late-2013-2014 onwards.

He initially began covering MMA in tandem with football back in June 2016 just as he was finishing school. The first real event he covered on his own personal blog was UFC 200 in July of that year during international fight week. His content consisted of previews and event and results recaps. In between jobs, Ross produced content on the side before transitioning to a full-time position back in early 2019.

He initially started creating content on his own blog back in June of 2016, before becoming a staff writer, lead writer, and editor for websites such as MMA Motion, Combat Insiders, Fight Bananas, FightPost, Severe MMA, MMA Power Hour, FightBook MMA, LowKick MMA, and of course, Current MMA.

Back in 2019, Ross received the award Top Journalist of 2019 for FightBook MMA, before he was then promoted to the website's lead writer. Following a six-month period at MMA Power Hour, he was also employed as a junior editor for the company. Throughout his time in the industry, he has interviewed the likes of Colby Covington, Rhys McKee, Pedro Carvalho, Felicia Spencer, Eryk Anders, Jussier Formiga, Danni Neilan, Frans Mlambo, Alex Lohore, Blaine O'Driscoll, Modestas Bukauskas, Ross Houston, Jon Fitch, and Richie Smullen.

  1. Good day,

    My name is Eric and unlike a lot of emails you might get, I wanted to instead provide you with a word of encouragement – Congratulations

    What for?

    Part of my job is to check out websites and the work you’ve done with currentmma.com definitely stands out.

    It’s clear you took building a website seriously and made a real investment of time and resources into making it top quality.

    There is, however, a catch… more accurately, a question…

    So when someone like me happens to find your site – maybe at the top of the search results (nice job BTW) or just through a random link, how do you know?

    More importantly, how do you make a connection with that person?

    Studies show that 7 out of 10 visitors don’t stick around – they’re there one second and then gone with the wind.

    Here’s a way to create INSTANT engagement that you may not have known about…

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know INSTANTLY that they’re interested – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re literally checking out currentmma.com.

    CLICK HERE http://talkwithcustomer.com to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

    It could be a game-changer for your business – and it gets even better… once you’ve captured their phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature, you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation – immediately (and there’s literally a 100X difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes.)

    Plus then, even if you don’t close a deal right away, you can connect later on with text messages for new offers, content links, even just follow up notes to build a relationship.

    Everything I’ve just described is simple, easy, and effective.

    CLICK HERE http://talkwithcustomer.com to discover what Talk With Web Visitor can do for your business.

    You could be converting up to 100X more leads today!

  2. Hey, my name’s Eric and for just a second, imagine this…

    – Someone does a search and winds up at currentmma.com.

    – They hang out for a minute to check it out. “I’m interested… but… maybe…”

    – And then they hit the back button and check out the other search results instead.

    – Bottom line – you got an eyeball, but nothing else to show for it.

    – There they go.

    This isn’t really your fault – it happens a LOT – studies show 7 out of 10 visitors to any site disappear without leaving a trace.

    But you CAN fix that.

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know right then and there – enabling you to call that lead while they’re literally looking over your site.

    CLICK HERE https://talkwithwebvisitors.com to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

    Time is money when it comes to connecting with leads – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes later can be huge – like 100 times better!

    Plus, now that you have their phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation… so even if you don’t close a deal then, you can follow up with text messages for new offers, content links, even just “how you doing?” notes to build a relationship.

    Strong stuff.
