SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch and UFC star Conor McGregor’s interactions on Twitter have taken an interesting turn.

Earlier this week, The Man commented on an article comparing her to the former 2-division UFC Champion. Lynch refuted the notion that she has been “channeling” McGregor as of late. She acknowledged that they have a bond as premiere Irish athletes, but stated that she’d break that bond (and his arm) if they ever got within 2 miles of each other.

McGregor, one of the biggest trash talkers in all of sports, responded with a show of respect. Instead of firing back with tough talk of his own, McGregor told her to call him if she ever needs backup.

Anybody else hear a cash register sound just now? Upping the ante once again, Becky Lynch told Conor McGregor that New York is nice in the spring time, a not-so-subtle reference to WrestleMania 35.

Lynch has trained with Conor McGregor’s team in Ireland before. WWE.com followed Becky around as she trained with the famed-coach John Kavanagh, during a WWE trip to Dublin in 2017.

“(Conor) would absolutely be a success. He is WWE,” Lynch told Newshub earlier this year. “A lot of his influence, a lot of his popularity and success is from taking elements of pro-wrestling and putting them into his UFC character and persona you see.”
