Now, there are rumors of Conor McGregor joining the WWE soon. McGregor as an entertainer is top-notch and he can perfectly fit Vince McMahon’s vision for the sports-entertainment outfit.

McGregor, nicknamed “The Notorious” is still UFC’s lightweight champion.

Audi Attar, McGregor’s agent stated to ESPN recently that if there is a serious WWE offer then that is an option for the Irish superstar.
“I think it’s all about business, man. If [WWE] is going to come with an offer, we are willing to entertain it. We are here. Have their people call his people — which is me. We can have a conversation,” Attar stated.
McGregor is the best in the MMA and the fight sport for now. But there are rumors of a possible crossover match with boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather Jr. The undefeated American boxer is currently retired but there is big money to be made if he gets a bout against McGregor.
