UFC President Dana White had a recent conversation with two-time boxing champion Andre Berto about fighting in the UFC.

According to a report from Yahoo! Sports, Berto and White ran into each other about three weeks ago and discussed the boxer potentially coming to fight for the MMA organization.

“I talked to Dana White about this … the last time I [saw] him,” Berto said. “Don’t be surprised if I try to get in that thing and win a title. I’ll be the first fighter to win a boxing championship and a UFC mixed martial arts world championship.”

Berto added that he knows the basics of MMA and that “it might be” a reality that he one day competes in the UFC’s famous Octagon.

Berto isn’t the only one in his family with MMA aspirations. His brother, James Edson Berto, fights for Bellator and his father, Dieusel, fought at UFC 10 way back in 1996.

The boxer also said that his sister, Revelina, is trying out for Season 18 of The Ultimate Fighter. That season will be coached by Ronda Rousey and the Miesha Tate-Cat Zingano winner at the TUF 17 Finale.
