On November 12th Conor McGregor may have won the biggest fight of his career to date. Being the first champion ever to hold simultaneous belts in two different divisions has secured him a place in MMA history. The win may have also come with new business opportunities for the Irish businessman. An alternative option to fighting rises in the horizon.
Among the thousands of people at the Madison Square Garden for UFC 205 was Paul “Triple H” Levesque. Triple H is a former WWE champion who is currently one of the executives in the company. And after the event he spoke to The Telegraph about the possibility of bringing McGregor to the WWE.
“He could come over, he’s got it all, man – he’s got the personality, the skills, the talk. He’s an entertainer, for sure.”
It seems like Conor McGregor might be considering the option for the future. It would explain why he stated he would “slap the head off” the entire WWE roster back in August.
The WWE and the UFC have collaborated in the past. Ronda Rousey appeared at Wrestlemania and Brock Lesnar fought at UFC 200. Furthermore, the WWE has a long history of inviting celebrities for casual appearances and matches. Even President-Elect Donald Trump has kicked ass in the show.
McGregor wouldn’t even have to be a competing athlete. He could appear just a celebrity guest and make for good TV.
