Maybe this is McGregor's way of issuing a challenge, of sorts, to Floyd Mayweather after months of rumors surrounding a potential bout between the two fighters. However, UFC president Dana White made it clear back in May that there was "no way in hell" McGregor and Mayweather would square off unless "kicks, punches, and elbows" were brought into the negotiations.
Last month, McGregor defeated Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205, becoming the first fighter in UFC history to hold two title belts at the same time. After successfully climbing the mountaintop of the featherweight and lightweight division, The Notorious said that he has "a million others hurdles [to get past]," and wouldn't consider another fight in the UFC until he got a stake in the company.
Does that mean that Conor wants to join the WWE? If so, Triple H has made it clear that he would be welcomed with open arms. "He could come over, he’s got it all, man," Triple H said. "He’s got the personality, the skills, the talk. He’s an entertainer, for sure." There's also the lingering possibility that McGregor would step into the ring, which would explain his decision to apply for a boxing license in the state of California.
As of right now, no one knows what's next for McGregor. And Conor may not have the answer either.
