Conor McGregor's Agent Says McGregor Is Open To WWE Deal

UFC Superstar Conor McGregor's agent, Audie Attar, appeared on ESPN's 5ive Rounds podcast this week. During the appearance, Attar said that McGregor was willing to entertain offers from WWE.

"I think it's all about business, man," Audie Attar said. "If [WWE] is going to come with an offer, we are willing to entertain it. We are here. Have their people call his people which is me. We can have a conversation."

As noted, Triple H attended UFC 205 last weekend at Madison Square Garden. In the evening's main event, UFC Featherweight Champion McGregor become the first person in UFC history to simultaneously hold titles in two divisions after defeating Eddie Alvarez for the UFC Lightweight Championship.

Triple H spoke to The Telegraph at the event and confirmed that WWE is interested in bringing McGregor in.

"He could come over, he's got it all, man - he's got the personality, the skills, the talk. He's an entertainer, for sure," Triple H said. "What does he walk around at? 180lbs? I have smaller guys now in the WWE. We have 200lb guys who are stars. You don't need to be 300lbs any more.

"He could do just as well as Floyd Mayweather when he fought the Big Show. That really worked. Conor could do it for sure."

Attar noted that "it's phenomenal that a guy like Triple H was at the fights," and addressed McGregor's recent shots at WWE talent.

"It's ultimately like, look -- I think Conor had his say via social media at times, but he also is someone that appreciates people that sacrifice and train and are dedicated to their craft, whatever it may be," Attar said. As for a potential match in WWE, Attar noted that "ultimately Conor will say, 'Let me talk to my friend Benjamin [Franklin] to see how many of his friends he's bringing with him before we talk about what the obligations are.'"
