WWE Chairman Vince McMahon Wanted to Fight UFC President Dana White at WrestleMania in 2011

It might not look like it, but WWE chairman Vince McMahon is 67 years old right now. Two years ago, though, when he was "only" 65, McMahon decided that he wanted to fight UFC president Dana White. We don't suspect that there was any bad blood between the two. But, with UFC on the rise and McMahon in search of a fight to headline WrestleMania, he probably figured that a McMahon/White match would be good for business. So, according to White, McMahon reached out to him and asked him for a fight—real or staged—at WrestleMania 27.

"Vince wanted to fight me," White said during a recent interview with Canada's RDS. "Swear to God, he called me up and said, 'Let's do it. We can either do it in the UFC or let's do it at Wrestlemania.' And I said, 'You are crazy.' I always said I respect Vince and I'll say it again. I respect Vince very much, but Vince is too old to be fighting."

Uh, ya think?!? Fortunately, the world wasn't subjected to that fight. But, if UFC ever needs a quick publicity stunt to get them in the news, at least they know where to go.
