Conor McGregor has interacted with WWE Superstars over the years on social media and Drew McIntyre has tipped the former UFC Featherweight and Lightweight Champion to join WWE "when the time is right" during a recent interview with Sky Sports.
"No, I wouldn't want to give him a hug but he wouldn't want to give me a hug considering I keep calling him McTapper on social media," McIntyre said. "He's such a huge star, he knows how to entertain and is an incredible fighter as well. When the time is right, he will show up in WWE and it's going to be exciting.
"I know I give him some cr*p but chances are we're probably not going to have a match because he's the size of my left calf! I will probably stick with [Tyson] Fury, he's a big guy and we're heavyweights, but it would be cool to have McGregor part of it. If he's feeling frisky, we'll have ourselves a little scrap, but he is such an entertainer. He gets it and he would fit in lovely in WWE."
If McGregor will make the jump to WWE ultimately remains to be seen, but other former UFC fighters like Ronda Rousey, Ken Shamrock, Cain Velasquez and Riddle have all made the jump to professional wrestling over the years with varying degrees of success.
