Dana White Compares Vince McMahon To Michael Jordan, Talks About HHH/Stephanie

UFC President Dana White recently spoke with Sports Illustrated for an in-depth interview.

During the discussion, the boss man of the Ultimate Fighting Championship spoke about the UFC merging with WWE to form TKO under the Endeavor banner.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On his history with Vince McMahon and WWE: “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.”

On the new merger between WWE and UFC to launch TKO: “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. We’ve probably spoken on the phone 20 times since the deal. It’s all added-value conversation–with Vince doing work and raising the bar for both companies.”

On Vince McMahon being the Michael Jordan of the business world and his relationship with Stephanie McMahon & Paul “Triple H” Levesque: “Triple H and Stephanie have always been great to work with. I’ve always had a great relationship with them, always, even when we weren’t aligned back in the day. But the most amazing story is the relationship with Vince McMahon. 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.”
