Over the past couple of years, many top fighters in UFC have been linked with a possible jump to perform in the WWE.
The two fighters that have been linked the heaviest with a move to sports entertainment are Conor McGregor and Ronda Rousey. Both fighters have talked about the WWE in the past, but in different ways.
While McGregor certainly has the mouthpiece for WWE, he has been very critical of the company and its superstars. While he has praised Vince McMahon and legends like Ric Flair and Stone Cold, he has scrutinized John Cena and other superstars on today's WWE roster.
Rousey, on the other hand, has a much more loving relationship with the WWE, as she loves the business. She was shown throughout WWE's Mae Young Classic tournament and is reportedly training at the WWE Performance Center for her first-ever match with the company.
Another UFC fighter that has been linked with a move to the WWE is Michael Bisping. The British fighter demonstrated throughout the build-up to his UFC 217 fight with Georges St-Pierre that like McGregor, he also has a great mouthpiece that would fit perfectly in the WWE.
During a recent interview with Stephie Haynes of the Bloody Elbow before his loss to GSP at UFC 217, the former UFC Middleweight Champion revealed if he would ever consider making the jump to the WWE if the money was right.
The Count said: "Probably not. Well, you never know. Never say never. Who knows, if I’m broke one day, sure. But that’s not the plan, that’s not what I’m looking to do. I’m hoping to take off in Hollywood."
Following his UFC 217 loss to St-Pierre on Saturday night, Bisping said he would like to have one more fight at a UFC event in the United Kingdom before calling it a day, most likely at UFC Fight Night 127 which will take place on March 17, 2018.
After this, who knows, maybe the money available for him to compete in the WWE is too good to turn down and he does decide to make the jump. He isn't the biggest UFC star WWE could sign but, as we have seen from the build-up to his UFC 217 fight, he has the mouthpiece to fit right in.
