McGregor announced his impending fatherhood after the match and hinted that he wouldn’t fight in the UFC again until UFC management offered him a stake in the company. Soon after UFC 205, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer revealed on Sunday’s edition of Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE are really interested in signing Conor McGregor, although he didn’t have any further details.  

We revealed earlier in the year how WWE were interested in signing a couple of UFC stars for Wrestlemania 33 and their interest has only grown since then, especially in the case of Conor McGregor who is probably the most famous MMA fighter in the planet right now. McGregor took shots at WWE on Twitter in August and a lot of fans and pundits speculated that it was a work building towards an angle in the future. If Conor doesn’t have his next fight scheduled till after Wrestlemania 33, there could be a good chance of WWE signing him up for the ‘grand daddy of them all’.
