UFC's Dana White: Vince McMahon is a 'killer,' has 'nothing but respect' for him

The UFC head was asked about his thoughts on McMahon's exit from WWE.

The professional lives of UFC head Dana White and now former WWE head Vince McMahon crossed several times in the past with a recent example being both involved in then-U.S. President's Donald Trump's sports advisory group during the height of the pandemic.

White was asked about McMahon following Tuesday night's Contender Series event, given that McMahon stepped down from WWE last Friday.

White praised the 76-year-old, calling him "a killer" and putting over his business accomplishments.

"I got stories about Vince for days. What that guy built and what he’s done is incredible. He’s been doing it for 50+ years. I watched that stuff as a kid and then (for him) to still be here and doing it now is phenomenal. He’s a killer. He’s buried the hatchet in my back a few times, but that’s what you’re dealing with. You don’t deal with a killer and not expect them to try to kill you. Yeah, I have nothing but respect for Vince," he said.

White was asked about McMahon and his family attending UFC 276 recently while they were Las Vegas the same night for Money in the Bank. White joked the family's seats were better then when he flew down to New Orleans for WrestleMania to see Ronda Rousey compete, had to get his tickets at will-call and was up in the upper decks of the venue.
