09:24 AM ET 03.17 | Talk about a clash of titans. Billionaire WWE CEO Vince McMahon challenged UFC president Dana White to a fight -- either in the UFC or at WWE Wrestlemania, White admitted to Canadian news outlet RDS (via MMA Mania) this weekend. White turned down the challenge, because he felt the 67-year-old McMahon was "too old." "Vince wanted to fight me -- swear to God," White said. "He called me up, said, "Let's do it. We can do it in the UFC, or let's do it at WrestleMania.' And I said, "You are crazy.'" The Wrestling Observer backed up White's claim, reporting that McMahon wanted a fight between himself and White as the co-headliner at Wrestlemania XXVII in 2011. It's unclear if McMahon was hoping for an actual mixed martial arts fight, like the ones in White's UFC, or a WWE-like scripted match. "I've always said it and I'll say it again, I respect Vince very much," White said. "But Vince is too old to be fighting anybody."

Vince could start off with some Chief Jay Strongbow chops, give him the Hogan Leg Drop and finish him off with the Figure Four...

How many 67 years olds do you know that can take the F5 from Brock Lasner and live to talk about????? (Forget that he used it as an excuse to over for hip surgey because he was back in the ring three weeks later fighting Pauk Heyman) Vince is insane, watch any match he does and the hugh number of bumps he takes. As the owner of the company he wouldn't have to do that but does to get his opponent (employees) over!!!

I think in a real fight he'd kill Dana White.....
