Vince McMahon is widely regarded as one of the most successful wrestling promoters around the world. He played a key role in transforming WWE into a billion-dollar entertainment company. However, McMahon’s current role in WWE is not as prominent as it was in the past, as he has sold the company to Endeavor.
Now that UFC and WWE are under the same parent company, rumors have circulated about a strained relationship between UFC President Dana White and WWE Executive Chairman Vince McMahon. McMahon himself recently denied these rumors during a public appearance.

The former CEO and Chairman of WWE, Vince McMahon, has recently denied rumors about his feud with UFC President Dana White. Mr. McMahon and The Undertaker were seen attending the fight of Francis Ngannou vs. Tyson Fury in Saudi Arabia as guests.
Both McMahon and White are highly successful promoters and businessmen who can be considered the best directing personalities in the combat sports entertainment industry with their respective promotions. However, now the best promoters have gotten an opportunity to work together, as Endeavor is currently the owner of both UFC and WWE.
There were several rumors of them not being on good terms, but Vince McMahon addressed these rumors. In an interview following Tyson Fury’s match, McMahon denied trying to force Dana White out of business and stated that he had a good relationship with the UFC president. He even referred to White as his business partner, as they are now working together under the TKO Group of Holdings.
“Please… I don’t do business that way. I don’t bust anybody’s chops unless they get in the way. Dana and I get along very well. He’s really a good guy. We’re good partners and good businessmen. If you’re a good businessman, you get along,” said Vince McMahon.
