According to my top secret inside sources, Shane McMahon recently had a meeting with UFC owner Dana White. McMahon recently resigned from his father's company, World Wrestling Entertainment, and rumors have circulated in recent years that Shane is interested in starting or working with a mixed martial arts promotion. Could it be that he aspires to carve out a niche in the world of sports and entertainment that deviates from his father's vision? He would actually be following more closely in his father's footsteps, as Vince McMahon Jr. transformed his own father's more traditional wrestling promotion into the glamorous sports entertainment product of today. Dana White declined to comment publicly about the meeting.
In other news from the mixed martial arts world, former WWE champion and current UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar was recently hospitalized and is suffering from the disease diverticulitis. The disease forms small pouches in the digestive system and will require surgery. Dana White reportedly stated that Lesnar may never fight again. Brock's jiu jitsu trainer, Rodrigo Medeiros, had a much more optimistic outlook, predicting that the champ will be back in fighting shape within six months. Medeiros said "the heavyweights can stop laughing and get ready to start crying because the champion will be back soon".
