After yesterday's UFC On FOX pre-fight press conference, UFC President Dana White was asked by MMA Fighting about Vince McMahon recently calling the UFC's ratings "abysmal." White, who had met with McMahon last year, said that he didn't know where the heat was coming from.

"Vince keeps talking sh-t about us, I don't know why," White said with a smile. "There's a lot of things that I could say about the WWE, but I would never... I don't know why he's trying to kick us in the balls.

"I like Vince. I have a good relationship with Vince... I think it's in his nature as a competitor and as a human being, it's the way that Vince is built."

When asked if the comment was made because McMahon feels threatened by the UFC, White replied, "I don't know, I don't think that there's anything for him to be threatened by, we're two completely different businesses... I know he pulls killer ratings on TV... we're just two totally different businesses."

You can check out the interview below, White's comments about McMahon begin at the 3:43 mark:
