Owen Roddy Says McGregor Will Make Short Work of Ferguson

The UFC's new interim lightweight champ is willing to let Conor McGregor avoid a confrontation by vacating share of the title, but he'd rather deliver an ass-whooping to entertain the masses.

McGregor, who is still yet to book his next fight after losing to Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match, could be set for a one-off WWE appearance.

We have learned via the Irish Sun that the long-standing rumours of Conor McGregor making his way to the WWE may become fact.

"This is something he's always wanted to do".

"But this time it looks like a deal is going to be locked into place".

"

"If he wants to go in 2017, I'm down."

McMahon's husband, wrestling royalty and current company COO Paul "Triple H" Levesque, has also previously welcomed the idea of a possible WWE appearance for McGregor, telling The Telegraph that the brash Dubliner possesses "the personality, the skills and the talk". In February of a year ago, he seemed to take a shot at them, calling WWE superstars "messed up pussies". 180lbs? I have smaller guys now in the WWE.

Afterwards some WWE stars including Ric Flair called McGregor out on social media for his remarks.

We don't doubt him. The company did something similar almost ten years ago as Floyd Mayweather agreed to wrestle The Big Show back at WrestleMania 24.

"I honestly think that people would rather, like, I think people would rather see Conor vs. Diaz", Roddy told Submission Radio this week. "So yeah, no, for us, I'd just like to see him back training in like the next week or two or whatever and then training through the Christmas or whatever, enjoy his training and then go into camp after the Christmas and fighting whatever, the first quarter of next year". "I've turned down some things, the conversation's still ongoing".

McGregor's striking coach, Owen Roddy, agrees that interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson and the only fighter to give McGregor a loss inside the octagon, Nate Diaz, are both intriguing options.

"His style is, you know, it's not traditional, it's a bit unorthodox and stuff, but I just honestly think that Conor's going to be way too clean for Ferguson", he said.

"The UFC is pretty good with that, right?" Conor, love him or hate him, the guy can fight and he can strike and he can box. This dude didn't say s--. He didn't say sh*t on Twitter. The boy is scared. I just can't wait for that first to go again or, you know?
