Conor McGregor & WWE "Close" On Deal For WrestleMania Appearance

Share

According to SunSport, the UFC star is in talks with WWE about making a cameo at WrestleMania 34 next year in New Orleans.

On Saturday night UFC president Dana White earmarked the Irishman's next opponent as interim lightweight champion, Tony Fegurson.

It is understood McGregor is a huge wrestling fan himself, having already adopted Vince McMahon's trademark "billionaire strut" around the Octagon.

'The WWE guys have asked him to do shows before with them but the timing was never really right.

The chances of Conor McGregor eventually working with WWE appear to be growing, that is, if you believe a recent report by the Sun Sport out of the United Kingdom.

Well, McGregor's head striking coach Owen Roddy disagrees and says that a third fight against Nate Diaz is still the matchup that fans would rather see after they engaged in two epic battles in 2016. He goes in. He looks to finish fights. That's my opinion. But yeah, it will be an interesting one, and it will be an exciting fight as well because Ferguson does come to fight, and he's aggressive.

The two-division "champ, champ" has been critical of WWE's current crop of stars, calling them "dweebs" previous year, which prompted a backlash from some of WWE's biggest names. The company did something similar almost ten years ago as Floyd Mayweather agreed to wrestle The Big Show back at WrestleMania 24.

At a live interview in Manchester McGregor revealed he was keen to give WWE a "real knock" and said conversations had started.

"His style is, you know, it's not traditional, it's a bit unorthodox and stuff, but I just honestly think that Conor's going to be way too clean for Ferguson", he said.

"But we'll see. There's conversations ongoing".

Since his 10th-round knockout loss to Mayweather, McGregor has been holidaying with his wife and newborn son, with no date set on his return to the UFC. You know, who wouldn't want to see the third fight? I think he was just saying it to keep people on their toes. He didn't say sh*t on Twitter. I just can't wait for that first to go again. Roddy isn't so sure Ferguson could absorb that kind of damage without going down and out for good. That's all you've got to do: "just set it down and you won't get ass kicked, I swear, by another Mexican".
