Conor McGregor has no plans for WWE, harsh words for wrestlers
Friday August 5th, 2016

Conor McGregor has no plans to enter WWE.

“For the most part, those WWE guys are p------,” said McGregor. “They’re messed up p------, if you ask me.”

McGregor was asked by Sports Illustrated during Friday’s UFC 202 media conference call if he would consider continuing the cross-promotion between UFC and WWE following Brock Lesnar’s highly-publicized victory over Mark Hunt at UFC 200.

“Fair play to Brock, he got in and fought but, at the end of the day, he’s juiced up to the f------ eyeballs,” said McGregor. “How can I respect that?

“The other guy [CM Punk] hasn’t fought yet, so I don’t know about him yet.”

Despite undoubtedly offending the entire WWE locker room, McGregor still left the door slightly ajar for a potential entrée into pro wrestling.

“I mean, there are some dons in that wrestling game,” said McGregor. “The McMahon’s? They’re dons. Triple H is a don, The Rock is a don, but the rest of them are f------ p------.

“I happen to enjoy it, but that’s a little more show business. This is the fight business.”

McGregor lost to Nate Diaz at UFC 196 in March, but vowed revenge in the rematch on Saturday, August 20 at UFC 202.

“I feel very confident I’ll go in, get this win, and put this man away,” said McGregor. “I will repay the favor and KO him in the second round.”
