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).

"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."
