CONOR McGregor dropped another hint he could one day find himself in WWE after congratulating fellow Irish star Becky Lynch for her WrestleMania 35 win.
Last night Lynch beat Charlotte Flair and McGregor’s ex-UFC colleague Ronda Rousey to claim the Raw and SmackDown Women’s Championships.
The match itself marked the first time a women’s contest headlined WrestleMania – and the ex-two weight UFC king congratulated Lynch on her historic win while hinting at a WWE move.
McGregor said: “Congrats to Irelands Becky Lynch, the WWE’s first Champ Champ.
“What a match these ladies put on! Ronda Rousey is something special in that ring, as is Charlotte Flair of the Flair dynasty!
“Stephanie McMahon you are right, I could not do what these athletes do.
“Or could I…”
McGregor’s UFC future still remains unclear after he announced a shock retirement from MMA two weeks ago – though he seemed to have reversed that decision just four days later.
The Irish star sees his six month octagon suspension expire in two weeks – after he and rival Khabib Nurmagomedov were penalised for a post-fight brawl at UFC 229.

Nurmagomedov, 30, retained his lightweight title after submitting The Notorious via neck crank – but then the duo began to brawl with their opposition’s entourages.
The rivals have continued their feud online since the October fight, with both fighters sinking to new lows with their goading which led to UFC president Dana White publicly condemning their actions.
McGregor recently told his fans “see you in the Octagon” – as he all but confirmed his plans for a return to the UFC.
