We’ve been covering the story that Shane McMahon recently met with UFC officials. At the UFC 106 posts-fight press conference, UFC president Dana White confirmed that he met with McMahon, but would not give further details regarding the nature of the meeting.
We’ve now learned that Shane McMahon is interested in purchasing a financial interest in UFC.
McMahon, who currently servces as WWE‘s Vice President of Global Media, will officially leave that post on January 1, 2010 and be free to work elsewhere.
With his extensive knowledge of marketing and expanding a sports brand into new markets, McMahon could be a big asset to the UFC as they continue their international expansion.
