12:22 PM ET 04.10 | UFC president Dana White says his organization is joining the fight to return wrestling as an Olympic sport. "Not just Olympic wrestling. Colleges are dropping wrestling right now. High schools have been dropping wrestling for a long time. Myself, I have personally funded tons of wrestling programs and the UFC has funded tons of wrestling programs for high school kids. I can't be the guy to try and run out and save wrestling," said White, who admitted he met with top wrestling officials last week.
