Shane McMahon, UFC To Work Together?

I never thought I would see the day when professional wrestling at the corporate level would enter the MMA world, yet there is that possibility out there as WWE Executive Vice President of Global Media Shane McMahon had been rumored to have cashed out $50 million of his $80 million in WWE stock, which as it turned out was not the case. McMahon did indeed cash out some of his stock back in July, but has made no sales since.

Regardless of the amount of stock that McMahon may have sold, he and former WWE Canada President met with the UFC earlier this month; UFC president Dana White declined to go into any specifics, stating that McMahon was a “good friend” and “you never know.” As those of you out there may or may not know, McMahon is a huge MMA fan and nearly had the chance to buy PRIDE before the organization was sold to Zuffa (UFC’s parent company).

Should McMahon be involved with UFC, it would be more along the lines of an employee, perhaps in the role of expanding the UFC brand internationally. Stay tuned to Octagon Buzz as more developments become available.
