Conor McGregor has hinted at swapping the octagon for the squared circle – and he’s got Vince McMahon in his sights.

The retired UFC icon may be done with the world mixed martial arts after claiming there weren’t any ‘excited’ fights left for him at lightweight or welterweight, but now he seems to be plotting a switch to WWE.

Notorious himself is a former two-time world champion, but he’s not one to turn down the chance at more gold.

His personal company The MacLife dropped a bit hint and got people talking this week as they shared a photodropped photo on Instagram showing McGregor holding both the WWE and UFC championship belts.

Conor shared the photo on his own story, tagging Vince’s daughter Stephanie McMahon and simply writing: ‘McGregor vs McMahon CEO Flashmatch’

It didn’t taken long for WWE Champion Drew McIntyre to weigh in, and he had some strong words for the fighter.

He tweeted: ‘Big man @TheNotoriousMMA picking a fight with ANOTHER 70 year old, you couldn’t drop a guy in a pub, you have no chance against Vince.

‘You’re just the latest guy thinking he can have his PR team stick my title on his shoulder & walk into our world. Stick to whiskey McTapper’

It’s not the first time Conor’s comments have caught the attention of WWE stars.

Back in 2016, he made waves as he slated seemingly all of the professional wrestling industry.

As well as calling all WWE superstars ‘dweebs’, he also described John Cena as a ‘a big fat, 40-year-old failed Mr. Olympia motherf*****’.

Last year, Roman Reigns fired back and said: ‘We got the best spot on 205 Live.

‘He is a cruiserweight, no doubt, and we’ll let him go in there and flip with all those guys.’
