Dana White Meeting Gable Steveson This Weekend In Vegas

Olympic Gold Medalist Gable Steveson Meeting With Dana White for UFC Contract

Gable Steveson could be one step closer to signing with the UFC … ’cause Dana White tells TMZ Sports he’s planning to meet with the Olympic wrestling superstar this weekend in Vegas.

21-year-old Steveson was one of the breakout stars at the 2020 Olympics … and has expressed interest in everything from the NFL, to WWE, to the UFC.

So, we asked the UFC prez if he had interest in Steveson … and that’s when White revealed he planned to link up with the gold medalist.

“Gable will be in town this weekend, and I think we’re gonna hook up and talk.”

The Minnesota Golden Gopher sent MMA fans into a tizzy a few days after his last-gasp victory in the final of the men’s 125kg freestyle wrestling tournament by sending a wave-emoji tweet to White.

And that tweet has set up a meeting with White, who told TMZ: “[Gable] will be in town this weekend, and I think we’re gonna hook up and talk.

“Obviously, there’s a lot of work for him to do before he can make it to the UFC. But we’ll see what happens.”

White will have to move quickly to acquire the services of the in-demand Steveson as WWE chief Vince McMahon has already made overtures to lure him to the promotion.

Steveson told SunSport earlier this month: “I haven’t really thought about what’s next.

“I told everybody I was going to come home and sit down for a little bit and just relax myself and just pick what’s best for me and what’s next.
