Conor McGregor isn’t short of an opinion when it comes to most subjects and his opinion on the WWE may just upset some of the cross-promotion fans. In the wake of Brock Lesnar appearing on UFC 200 and subsequently failing two drugs tests, the ‘Notorious’ was asked his opinion on the cross promotion.
McGregor didn’t hold back calling the wrestling superstars “messed up pussies”. He acknowledged that there are some “Dons!” in the WWE, giving credit to the McMahons, Triple H and the Rock but it appears as though the Featherweight Champion doesn’t have the highest opinion of the rest of the roster.
McGregor did pay respect to Brock Lesnar if only momentarily for stepping up and fighting in the octagon before cutting him straight back down, by saying he was:
“Juiced up to the fucking eyeballs!”
McGregor did mention CM Punk also but referred to him as “the other guy”. CM Punk is scheduled to make his UFC debut at UFC 203 against 2-0 Micky Gall. Punk’s promotional debut has been over 18 months in the making and has come in for much criticism.
McGregor fights Nate Diaz on August 20th in the T-Mobile Arena, as the pair headline UFC 202. The fight is set to be one of the biggest fights in the promotions history.
The marketability of the ‘Notorious’ being as strong as it is, don’t be surprised if you see McGregor make an appearance on the WWE soon. We all know the WWE love a villain.
