Controversial UFC lightweight champion, Conor McGregor, is happy for Ronda Rousey now that she is in WWE. Reporters caught up with the Irish superstar earlier this week and got his comments.
“I’m delighted for her. Absolutely over the moon for her. She looked like she really enjoyed herself at the event and I was very, very happy to see her. She’s a pioneer for the game and she came through it all and faced big wins and big, big losses and she came through it.”
McGregor continued, “It’s great to see her represent herself and mixed martial arts and have fun in the WWE. I know she’s been a big fan all her life. It’s great to see that.”

Conor McGregor has been linked to WWE in the past as well. In August of 2016, Conor caused a stir when he posted a tweet saying he’d “slap all the heads off” the WWE roster.
A few months later, Triple H attended a Conor fight live in person and told reporters that the 29-year-old fighter “has it all”. Triple H also mentioned he thought Conor could perform in a WrestleMania match similar to Floyd Mayweather vs. the Big Show.
