'The Notorious One' could follow in the footsteps of former champ Ronda Rousey.
Conor McGregor announced his retirement from MMA this morning and bookies have him odds-on to appear in the WWE for his next career move.
Two former UFC stars are currently holding gold in the company, with Brock Lesnar the Universal Champion and Ronda Rousey the Raw Women’s Champion.
McGregor could be next in line, and one bookie has him at just 1/3 to appear on any WWE PPV between now and Wrestlemania 36 in April 2020.
Wrestlemania is the biggest show of the year for the WWE, and its latest incarnation will occur on Sunday 7th April, in front of 80,000 people in New Jersey.
He's just evens to appear in 12 days time, in a move that would surely pique the interest of both WWE and UFC fans alike.
Should ‘The Notrious One’ make the step into the squared circle, he’ll be in familiar company. Fellow Irish star Becky Lynch will be competing in the main event next Sunday, with close friend (and County Wicklow-based) Finn Balor also in action.
For something slightly bigger price, look no further to the 20/1 on offer that McGgregor teams up in a televised match with Lynch before Wrestlemania 36.
If you think that WWE will go ‘all in’ on the Crumlin-born brawler, you can get 150/1 on McGregor winning the Royal Rumble 2020.
Oddschecker spokesperson George Elek: “Conor McGregor's 'retirement' surely has to be taken with a dollop of salt.
Nothing that man does comes without fanfare and ceremony, so it seems very unlikely that we have seen the last of him, whether in an octagon or a WWE ring.”
