Once former UFC Lightweight and Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor announced his retirement from MMA competition, there’s been some speculation as to what his motives were behind the decision.
Some think that it all comes down to a negotiation tactic in order to get more money for his next fight under the UFC banner. What his future holds remains to be seen.
One landing spot for McGregor should he choose it would be the WWE. This is something that Roman Reigns was asked about when he recently made an appearance on ESPN Deportes.
The former WWE Universal Champion thinks McGregor would fit well on the WWE 205 Live brand as he has fought between 145 and 170 pounds during his MMA career.
“We got the best spot on 205 Live, Reigns said. “He is a cruiserweight, no doubt, and we’ll let him go in there and flip with all those guys.”
If a deal was worked out between WWE and McGregor, the chances of him appearing on 205 Live are not likely. Instead, he would appear on their flagship show, Monday Night RAW.
