There aren't many bigger sports stars in the world right now than Conor McGregor.

Coming off the biggest payday of his life against Floyd Mayweather, the world is seemingly his oyster.

As the UFC lightweight champion, the Notorious One will need to step back in the cage before long to either defend his title - likely against now interim champion Tony Ferguson - or in another money-spinning bout against Nate Diaz.

However, what about the WWE?

According to The Sun, the wrestling company have opened discussions with the Irishman recently and have a plan for how they want to use him.

As previously mentioned, McGregor is likely to step inside the octagon again before 2017 finishes with UFC 219 in Las Vegas on December 30 looking likely.

The WWE are believed to be pitching a WrestleMania match to McGregor where he would face a 'top star' in the company.

Given McGregor is just shy of 5'8" in height, it would be interesting to see who they would pit Mystic Mac against.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. v Conor McGregor

WrestleMania 34 is in New Orleans on April 8, 2018. That's plenty of time for McGregor recuperate from UFC 219 and train for whatever the WWE has in store for him.

A source said: “Conor is a huge wrestling fan. His entire persona on stage he has developed from watching performers like Ric Flair and The Rock.

“These are the top dogs at self-promotion and trash talk. He watched these guys when he was younger. This is something he’s always wanted to do.

“The WWE guys have asked him to do shows before with them but the timing was never really right. But this time it looks like a deal is going to be locked into place.

"He has some things to tie up in the UFC before he can do anything else but this is a big money deal so I can’t see him turning it down.”

McGregor has remained opened to a run in the company, similar to what Mayweather did back in 2008.

During a live interview in Manchester earlier this year, McGregor said: “Never say never. I’d love to go into that WWE and have a real knock.

“Let one of them have a real knock and see what’s what.

“But we’ll see. There’s conversations ongoing. I’ve turned down some things, the conversation’s still ongoing.”
