Everyone is waiting for UFC Champion Conor McGregor's next move. Apart from everything else, there might be a possibility of him joining WWE pro wrestling after spending many years on Mixed Martial Arts fighting.

Conor McGregor is currently on a break as he is on his way to becoming a father. He is waiting for the birth of his first child with partner Dee Delvin.

There are doubts some doubts over his future in UFC and rumor of him joining WWE has been spreading since a long time. As written in Daily Mail, on-screen manager of Brock Lesnar, Paul Heyman believes that Conor would fit in in the WWE and he also offered McGregor to represent him. 

Heyman told the WWE Network "It'd be great if he was. He's a main line box office attraction. He's a headline news grabber. I think it'd be great for WWE and I think it would be even better for Conor McGregor."

Conor McGregor previously said that he would join WWE and has claimed that he would slap the head off their entire roster. Many WWE wrestlers did not like that and responded angrily. But according to Heyman, it was a part of Conor's strategy to make them angry.

Heyman said that there are people who mention him by name here using our platforms to promote him. He is not mentioning anybody by name here because he has a platform all of his own. He outsmarted everybody except me and Brock Lesnar.

He believes that this makes him a huge box office attraction by being promoted by others who spend their equity talking about him. As written in Champions, Heyman said that it would be best for business if Conor McGregor joins WWE.

WWE CEO Triple H has also suggested that he would be interested in signing UFC Lightweight Champion. WWE organization have also been linked with a move for another UFC player Ronda Rousey. She is expected to retire from there after her loss to Amanda Nunes recently.
