Former UFC Featherweight and Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor made some interesting comments while at a recent press conference in Ukraine.
This is where he was asked about his future after he is finished fighting in the UFC. McGregor responded by teasing a potential jump to WWE once he’s done being a pro-MMA fighter.
ESPN reporter Marc Raimondi tweeted out the following:
“Conor McGregor was asked at the press conference today in Ukraine about his future after the UFC. He mentioned Hollywood and “maybe the WWE.” McGregor: “I’ve had a bit of beef with those guys over the years.”
McGregor is claiming that he’ll fight again in January in Las Vegas, Nevada but doesn’t have an opponent lined up yet.
McGregor hasn’t appeared on WWE programming in the past but his name has been connected to the sports entertainment 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.
