Undertaker Urges Conor McGregor to Join WWE: Claims the Irishman Would Be ‘Ultimate Heel’

WWE legend The Undertaker has expressed his desire to see Conor McGregor make the transition from the UFC to professional wrestling, believing that the Irishman has all the qualities to become one of the biggest stars in the WWE.

McGregor, who will return to the UFC later this year following a two-year absence due to a leg injury, continues to be one of the most recognizable names in combat sports. However, as his possible return approaches, speculation arises regarding the future of his career and the possibility of him pursuing other opportunities.

Speaking to The Independent, The Undertaker praised McGregor’s charisma and ability, stating, “He has WWE written all over him. He would be the ultimate heel, and that would be kind of fun.”

The recent acquisition of a majority stake in WWE by Endeavour Group Holdings, who also owns the UFC, has sparked rumours of possible crossovers between the two organisations. McGregor’s entry into the WWE would unquestionably be a major attraction for both professional wrestling and mixed martial arts fans.

While several MMA fighters, including Ronda Rousey and Brock Lesnar, have successfully transitioned to WWE in the past, McGregor’s star power and popularity would elevate it to a new level. McGregor’s larger-than-life persona and ability to captivate audiences would be a tremendous asset to WWE and could conceivably propel the organisation to new heights.

Uncertain is whether McGregor will make the transition from the Octagon to the wrestling arena. Nonetheless, the prospect of such a crossover has piqued the interest of both fans and industry professionals. Whether McGregor pursues a career in WWE or continues his journey in the UFC, his impact on combat sports is undeniable, and his legion of worldwide fans anxiously await his future endeavors.

Conor McGregor accepts boxing match against UFC legend Mark Coleman

Conor McGregor has welcomed a celebrity boxing match against Mark Coleman, the 58-year-old UFC legend. In 1997, Coleman became the inaugural UFC heavyweight champion by tapping out fellow legend Dan Severn. Coleman was one of the first wrestlers to attain success in the cage, earning him the nickname ‘The Godfather of Ground and Pound’ in mixed martial arts history.

The 58-year-old is now scheduled to return to the ring in October after signing a contract with Celebrity Boxing. McGregor’s now-deleted tweet in response to the news stated, “Challenge accepted!” McGregor, a former UFC champion at two weight classes, appeared to welcome the notion of facing Coleman in a boxing match.

Coleman saw McGregor’s tweet before it was purged, as evidenced by an Instagram video in which he said:

“Hey Conor McGregor I’m a big fan. Thank you for calling me out! It has to be in boxing because I would smash you in MMA you know that. Boxing you are probably going to lose a decision, but I want a red panty night.”

McGregor, having recently coached against his UFC adversary on The Ultimate Fighter, is getting ready for a battle of his own against Michael Chandler later this year. The fight has not yet been officially scheduled, but it will most likely occur at either UFC 295 in November or UFC 296 in December.
