As it’s grown in popularity, the UFC has attracted a bevy mainstream stars to their shows, including a number of major sports stars.
One such star is basketball standout Shaquille O’Neal, who has long been a fan of MMA and even harbored a desire to step into the cage himself. Though he thought better of it and kept within his wheelhouse, O’Neal is still interested in becoming involved with the sport and the UFC specifically. Following this weekend’s UFC 133 fight card, UFC president Dana White revealed that their may be a place in the business for the recently retired pro baller.

“Shaq is one of my good friends, and he’s been very good to us and the sport of mixed martial arts,” White said. “Shaq does want to get involved, but Shaq’s not fighting. Shaq wants to get involved in the business side of this thing. He’s a guy we have a lot of respect for, so we’ll see what happens.”
