Conor McGregor Reportedly in Talks to Appear at WrestleMania 34

Afterwards, UFC president Dana White said unifying the titles with a fight between McGregor and Ferguson was the only matchup that made sense.

The new champion now wants a title unification fight with UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor and he's willing to haunt the Irish fighter's dreams until he gets one.

The $100 million dollar man will be heading back to the Octagon after his dance with Floyd Mayweather but there's been ongoing speculation as to who McGregor will fight next.

"I think he was just saying it to keep people on their toes". "I just think it's a more exciting fight for everybody". Go back to the 1990s and observe that Ken Shamrock and Dan Severn, the two biggest UFC stars of that era, crossed into professional wrestling and had success. "It's about the pride fight, and this dude's going to be sitting on the sidelines if he doesn't want to fight".

McGregor does want to return to the UFC before the end of 2017, having yet to defend the lightweight strap he won from Eddie Alvarez last November.

Conor McGregor's striking coach Owen Roddy has weighed up two of the Irishman's options for a potential opponent in his UFC return fight. He's an exciting fighter so it will be an exciting fight, so either or. That's all you've got to do: "just set it down and you won't get ass kicked, I swear, by another Mexican".

"He has some things to tie up in the UFC before he can do anything else but this is a big money deal so I can't see him turning it down".

"His style is, you know, it's not traditional, it's a bit unorthodox and stuff, but I just honestly think that Conor's going to be way too clean for Ferguson", Roddy told Submission Radio. He goes in. He looks to finish fights. We saw that against Mayweather and if Kevin Lee connected with [Ferguson], sure as hell Conor will connect as well.

Espinoza continued - "Boxing fans are harder on their sport than any other sport and in some ways deservedly so.

And I think the Ferguson fight will be exciting, whether it comes earlier next year or whenever, but I think it will be an exciting fight". But Roddy leans towards a third fight with Diaz should be McGregor's next challenge.

"This is a tough fight for him". It's when you're fighting, when you're training out of camp is when you improve, when you work on new techniques and you develop new areas of the game.
