Negotiations are advanced between Vince McMahon’s promotion and Ari Emanuel’s Endeavour Group.

A deal could be announced as soon as Monday, just one day after WrestleMania 39’s second and final night.

That means WWE and UFC will merge and form a new publicly traded company.

Endeavor will own 51 per cent, while WWE shareholders will get the other 49 per cent.
