Former WWE Executives Shane McMahon And Carl DeMarco Meet With UFC

According to a report on, WWE Executive Vice President of Global Media Shane McMahon and former WWE Canada President Carl DeMarco recently met with the UFC.

McMahon, son of WWE CEO Vince McMahon, gave his notice to WWE last month and will be leaving the organization effective January 1, 2010. Shane McMahon is a big MMA fan, and at one point in time had talks with PRIDE about purchasing the company before PRIDE sold to Zuffa.

The F4W Newsletter is reporting that the meeting was an exploratory meeting, and nothing has been signed as of yet. The newsletter noted that many officials in WWE believe that Shane will eventually end up with the UFC, and may help the UFC expand internationally.

Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter asked UFC President Dana White about the meeting last weekend, and White offered no comment.
