Love it or hate it, Conor McGregor is the biggest draw in the world of combat sports today. He is a walking talking paycheck. He's the main event, he's the draw, he's the living breathing embodiment of the UFC today.

After becoming the first man in UFC history to hold the Featherweight & Lightweight Championships simultaneously, what's next for the Notorious One? He's conquered everything set before him in the octagon, and now it's time for him to prove himself in the squared circle.  

With Rousey making an appearance at Wrestlemania 32 and Lesnar fighting at UFC 200. What's there to stop McGregor becoming a part of WWE history? If the Irishman were ever to grace us with his profitable presence, here's five opponents I feel would be perfect for the 28-year old to face at Wrestlemania 33.


#5 Roman Reigns:

Picture this. The next golden boy of WWE versus the most popular athlete on the planet. Picture Reigns & McGregor squaring up in front of a sold out crowd at Wrestlemania in Florida.

Of course, Reigns would get that boisterous heel treatment and McGregor would be incredibly over, but at least we know that the 70,000 + in attendance would be deeply interested in the match. Just imagine that atmosphere, it'd be special.

A technical hard hitting athlete versus a resilient powerhouse. When McGregor claimed on Twitter that he would slap everyone on the WWE roster, Reigns responded in typically bullish fashion. Making reference to McGregor's featherweight size. It's clear that Reigns doesn't respect the Irishman in the slightest.

This match would not only raise the roof at Wrestlemania but would finally cement Reigns' status as the crossover star that the WWE want him to be.
