Conor McGregor in talks to make WWE Wrestlemania Extravaganza debut next year
Can you fooking believe it!
The UFC lightweight champion is gonna try his luck in next years Wrestlemania Extravaganza against one of World Wrestling Entertainment's biggest stars.
The Irish UFC fighter is a long-time WWE fan, so much so that he has even taken on the infamous Vince McMohan's 'billionaire strut' when he enters the UFC arena.
SunSport understands that a deal is close with WWE top brass but the match is likely to be delayed until next year — with a possibility of him appearing in April’s Wrestlemania event.
A source said: “Conor is a huge wrestling fan. His entire persona on stage he has developed from watching performers like Ric Flair and The Rock.
“These are the top dogs at self-promotion and trash talk. He watched these guys when he was younger.
"This is something he’s always wanted to do.
“The WWE guys have asked him to do shows before with them but the timing was never really right.
“But this time it looks like a deal is going to be locked into place.
This man does not stop.
