UFC Rumors: Conor McGregor Goes Off On WWE, Mocks Brock Lesnar
Ultimate Fighting Championship flyweight champion Conor McGregor does pretty much anything he wants, including criticizing people and groups. The WWE was one of the companies he recently tackled during a conference call to promote his upcoming UFC 202 rematch with Nate Diaz.Advertisement
McGregor was someone previously linked to the WWE and many were under the impression that “The Notorious” could be making an appearance soon. The best bet is WrestleMania 33, which could make him the next UFC star to appear in the annual extravaganza — next to Ronda Rousey, who had an interesting role at WrestleMania 31.
But if his take at the UFC 202 conference call is to be considered, it doesn’t look like the Irishman is interested in appearing at any WWE event for now. He took exception by calling the WWE stars messed up ‘expletive’ and admitted he hasn’t given it any thought for now.
Mocking Brock Lesnar
McGregor is fearless and that means he goes off on anyone. But he could regret going off on Brock Lesnar at some point, which all the more derails a possible WWE stint.
McGregor takes an indirect swipe on the “Beast Incarnate” with the ‘juice’ reference. Everyone knows that this had something to do with the celebrated Lesnar’s failed drug test at UFC 200.
Knowing McGregor, he is likely to get in his views at some point. Curiously, the juice issue does not spare him, especially when he appeared ‘bigger’ for UFC 196 but still lost to Diaz.

Will Conor McGregor vs Brock Lesnar Happen?
In UFC, there is no way — at least for now — that Dana White would pit Lesnar against McGregor. That is unless he manages to do something to move to the heavyweight division, which is quite impossible at this point.
Until then, McGregor best concentrates on his rematch with Diaz at UFC 202. He needs to convince fans that the previous defeat was no fluke meaning winning solely by decision will not be enough.
