Dana White Talks UFC vs. WWE Competition

0

UFC president Dana White and co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta appeared on “Your World with Neil Cavuto” on the FOX News Channel yesterday. A common theme during the show seemed to be questions about UFC being in competition against WWE. White and Fertitta for the most-part no-sold the questions, but did end up addressing a couple of them.

White said UFC and WWE are two different things. He admitted WWE does better television ratings but mentioned that UFC was more successful on pay-per view. Feritta mentioned how UFC beat both WWE and professional boxing combined on PPV last year. They also talked about how WWE's audience skews younger.
