A change of heart. While speaking at the post-show press conference following the most recent UFC Fight Night event in St. Louis, UFC President Dana White said that he is open to the idea of his fighters participating in WWE. This is due to Vince McMahon leaving the company and a new regime being in place.

Below are White’s comments:

“Well, I didn’t know that [Lewis-WWE talks], but yeah, I would do anything for Derrick Lewis. I really like Derrick Lewis a lot. Listen, some of the fighters who fight here have always dreamed about doing a WWE match or whatever it is. I don’t have a problem with that. I mean, I didn’t have a problem with that when Vince was consistently f*****g me for no reason, and now that that’s not the case anymore, I obviously would absolutely do it.”

It has been reported that Derrick Lewis has been in talks with WWE recently.


Editor’s Opinion:

I had no idea that White felt this way about McMahon. That being said, while it didn’t work out for Cain Velasquez, it did work out for Lesnar and Ronda Rousey. And if you think about someone like Conor McGregor, he would be a perfect fit for WWE. I’d love to see something like this happening in the future!
