Lakers_Dwight_Howard_2013 [1]Dwight Howard may be making a quick venue change: From the basketball court to the UFC Octagon. During a backstage visit at a UFC fight in Houston, the Rockets’ big man told UFC president Dana White recently that he’d be willing to go into the cage … for $10 million.

“I would get up there and fight. If I get knocked out, I get knocked out,” Howard said. “I’ll get back up one day.”

White immediately interjected. “I want to do that pay-per-view when you’re ready, man,” he said.

Howard’s Rockets’ teammate Chandler Parsons said he’d do the fight for $10 million but didn’t think it would go that well.

“I would literally f— die,” he said.
