Vince McMahon could have slowed down MMA's growth.

UFC and MMA may never have gained the coveted 18-24 demo from the WWE had Vince McMahon listened to the advice of former ECW brain and WWE employee Paul Heyman (aka Paul E. Dangerously).

Paul Heyman: "I was there in the room when we decided whether to let The Ultimate Fighter come on after Monday Night Raw," Heyman told Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour. "They had the right to approve or decline any programming that followed them.  I told [the WWE], they better not let [the UFC] on ... Yeah, I'm the a--hole that almost turned it down."
