Last month, WWE and UFC combined under one umbrella. Both entities merged to form TKO Group Holdings.
After the merger was completed, Dana White became the Chief Executive Officer of UFC and Vince McMahon became the Executive Chairman of TKO.
White and McMahon have not been on good terms with each other in the past. In an interview with Sports Illustrated’s Justin Barrasso, CEO of UFC Dana White discussed his relationship with McMahon over the years. White said McMahon has been a better partner than anyone else.
“My history with Vince isn’t a good one, He tried to f— me so many times for no reason whatsoever except just to f— me. But that’s in the past. Now that Vince and I are allies, no one’s been a better partner than Vince.”
“Since day one of the deal, it’s like I’m dealing with a different guy, it goes to show that when you oppose him, or he thinks you are opposing him, the guy comes after you blindly. Once you are aligned, Vince is an incredible partner.”
“Vince McMahon, man, he’s an absolute savage, Even with the stuff that went down with us in the past, I respect it. I love killers. He’s definitely a killer. He’s the Michael Jordan of the business world.”Dana White
Dana White also stated in the interview that he and McMahon had telephone conversations 20 times since the merger was completed. White added that it’s a pleasure to work with Paul “Triple H” Levesque and Stephanie McMahon.
