While speaking after Saturday's UFC Fight Night event, Dana White was asked about the possibility of UFC fighters stepping into a WWE ring with White noting he doesn't have an issue with it, especially now that Vince McMahon isn't around to 'keep fucking him'.

"Well, I didn't know that, but yeah, I would do anything for Derrick Lewis. I really like Derrick Lewis a lot, so. Listen some of the 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 fucking me for no reason and now that that's not the case anymore I obviously would absolutely do it."

Dana was then asked if he would ever consider appearing as a special guest referee in WWE, with White stating that would "never happen". Former UFC fighter turned professional wrestler Tom Lawlor reacted to White's comments, finding them quite amusing.

White also alluded to the possibility of WWE Premium Live Events returning to Sunday night's during the press conference. You can read more about that here.
