For decades, WWE and UFC were seen as enemies. Both could be considered sports and entertainment, but neither company ever worked together. Then, everything changed real fast. Both companies were purchased by the same individuals, who combined WWE and UFC to be called TKO Group Holdings. MMA and pro wrestling continue to produce their owns shows, although they work as one now.

So far, we have not seen much happen. It could be because the deal is still somewhat new or the fact that Vince McMahon caused so many problems. He has been accused of sexual assault, sexual harassment and human trafficking. Vince re-signed from WWE over the summer in disgrace and will never be back. He has seemingly been blacklisted from anything to do with pro wrestling. Truly, what a horrible person who deserves to be in prison. It does leave room for UFC’s Dana White to become even more powerful.

I didn’t have a problem with that when Vince was consistently f—ing me for no reason and now that that’s not the case anymore, I, obviously, would absolutely do it.”

We have seen some UFC fighters come to WWE and make a huge impact. Those include Ken Shamrock, Brock Lesnar and Ronda Rousey. There are some failures, like Dan Severn and Matt Riddle. WWE wrestlers going to UFC has not gone great. Brock Lesnar did return to UFC for one fight, but the only other big name would be CM Punk. His two UFC fights, which he lost, were very embarrassing. So, what UFC fighters would you like to see make the jump to WWE?
