White’s comments suggest a willingness to explore opportunities that could see athletes from both domains crossing over for special events. This idea isn’t entirely new; we’ve seen Ronda Rousey and Brock Lesnar switch between the UFC and WWE in the past:

“Listen, if there’s something there, like Ronda [Rousey] going over there or Brock [Lesnar] coming over here, whether we were with them or not. If that was the case, we would do that stuff” White claimed.
