Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez talked with BT Sport about a wide range of topics.
During the interview, while talking about how his transition from MMA to WWE has gone, Conor McGregor was brought up.
“I think he’d be well suited because of his promos,” Velasquez said. “That’s probably the hardest part and he nails that. And he’s just a great athlete so he can definitely do it, yeah!”
McGregor hasn’t appeared on WWE programming in the past but his name has been connected to the company as he has previously teased making the move.
Stephanie McMahon has publicly stated that the company would welcome McGregor should he wanted to do business with them.
The former UFC Featherweight and Lightweight Champion just beat Donald Cerrone at UFC 246 this past Saturday night. He has stated in interviews that he plans to fight two more times in 2020.
