UFC President Dana White told ESPN back in June:
"Actually, a week before he retired, Shaq called me and [said] he wants to be involved in the UFC somehow. He's always been a good friend to us and I'm sure you're going to see Shaq around the UFC a lot. He said, ‘Listen, I'm gonna have a lot of free time on my hands. I love this sport, I want to get involved. I want to be a part of it.' He's not just coming in [at the last-minute], he's been a part of it for a long time. Shaq helped us launch the first season of ‘The Ultimate Fighter.' He's always supported us and has always been a good friend. So now that he wants to be involved, I'm more than happy to get him."
