Tell 'em how you really feel, Conor McGregor. During a conference call to promote his upcoming rematch against Nate Diaz at UFC 202, McGregor was asked about the possibility of joining the WWE in the future, citing Brock Lesnar's return to the Octagon one month ago. "I haven’t really thought about it. For the most part, those WWE guys are pussies," he said, perTMZ Sports. "They’re messed up pussies if you ask me."
Then, McGregor switched his focus to Lesnar, saying, "I mean, fair play to Brock. He got in and fought, but at the end of the day, he's juiced up to the eyeballs. So how can I respect that?" While Conor did make his fair share of enemies with these remarks, he didn't completely rule out a stint in the WWE down the road. Sure, he ensured himself a role as the heel if he ever does cross over, but we're sure the former UFC featherweight champion wouldn't have it any other way.
In addition to these comments, McGregor has already predicted how his fight with Diaz will go down, in addition to ripping his opponent and his "stupid black T-shirt." With UFC 202 just two weeks away, it's clear that he's settling right back into his old self—at least from a trash-talking perspective. As for the fighter who shows up on Aug. 20, well, that still remains to be seen. Either way, this rematch is definitely going to be quite the draw for McGregor fans and haters alike.
