WWE.com is featuring an article confirming that former MMA stars Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir have officially reported to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando.
Duke and Shafir, who were collectively known as the Four Horsemen in the MMA world along with former UFC star Ronda Rousey and current NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler, now appear to be making a full-time transition to professional wrestling.
Duke (3-5 in MMA) last fought in 2016 for Invicta FC, while Shafir (1-2 in her pro MMA career) last fought in 2015 for Invicta FC as well. Duke was part of Team Rousey on The Ultimate Fighter reality series. Shafir is engaged to NXT star Roderick Strong.
WWE teased a confrontation between the Four Horsewomen and Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch and Bayley at the Mae Young Classic tapings last September, minus an appearance by Sasha Banks who was taking part in media overseas in Australia.
