If WWE RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch wanted to make the transition from the pro wrestling world to being a pro-MMA fighter then she would have a big supporter behind her.
Lynch has trained in the past with Conor McGregor’s coach John Kavanagh when she has time off from the brutal WWE schedule and travels home to Ireland.
The coach of the former UFC Lightweight and Featherweight Champion believes that if Lynch did get into the MMA game then she has the potential to compete at a high level.
He elaborated on his mindset while doing a recent interview with ESPN’s Ariel Helwani on Monday afternoon while talking about a wide range of topics.
While Kavanagh doesn’t think that she would leave WWE to fight, he thinks if “she were to say to me tomorrow, ‘You know what, I want to give MMA a go,’ give me a year and I’d have her fighting at a high level. No doubt. She has an engine and she’s tough as hell.”
He would later add that she can take the big hits because of her mental and physical toughness. ”She would do very well.”
