0826_dana_white_vince-mcmahon_tmz-getty"He's a f***ing maniac, he's an animal, he's a competitor, he wants to win. That's his nature and I respect it." -- Dana White on Vince McMahon

The UFC honcho opened up about his working relationship with the WWE tycoon on Ric Flair's podcast this week ... and while he says it hasn't always been smooth sailing, it's obvious he respects the guy.

"Vince has been very difficult in the past but the past several years he's been much better," White said. 

White says working with the WWE on the recent deal that allowed Brock Lesnar to fight at UFC 200 -- along with a deal to get Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania 31 -- were "probably the best experiences."

"If you look at what Vince McMahon has accomplished in all of his years and to still be on top and still be doing it ... The guy's got enough money, he's in it because he loves it, he's in it because he's still passionate about it." White said.

WWE Hall of Famer Tammy Sytch -- aka Sunny -- just caught a HUUUUGGGE break in her triple DUI case ... avoiding serious jail time thanks to her 97 days in rehab.

In addition, she got 5 years parole with bi-weekly alcohol testing, 125 hours of community service and will have to pay roughly $2,100 in fines. 

We're told the judge also made it clear ... Tammy's in a zero-tolerance situation -- one slip-up and it's the pokey for her. 

Tammy tells us ... she's 152 days sober, feels great and dedicated to staying on track.
