Conor McGregor Calls Out WWE CEO Vince McMahon
Conor McGregor might have retired from UFC again but the Notorious is still eyeing up his next fight, and it could be against WWE chairman Vince McMahon.
The Irishman quit UFC for the third time recently, although most would expect him to be back in the octagon at some point, leaving a gap in his diary.
Previously McGregor changed sports to face Floyd Mayweather in a boxing ring and he could change disciplines again but this time move to professional wrestling.
Reposting something on his Instagram story, McGregor called out WWE boss Mr Mcmahon, who he shares the billionaire strut with.
McGregor's call out included a tag for Vince's daughter Stephanie, who is WWE's chief brand officer, just to make sure someone in the company was watching.
There has been talk of the Notorious making a move to professional wrestling in the past, with his big talking suited perfectly for WWE, or other promotions.
The 31-year-old even called out members of the WWE's locker room when he called them 'dweebs' in 2016 and said John Cena was a 'a big fat, 40-year-old failed Mr. Olympia motherf**ker.'

Fighting McGregor wouldn't be the first time 74-year-old McMahon has got in the ring, and he is even a former WWE champion and Royal Rumble winner, but it's been sometime since he fought.
The 'Mr Mcmahon' character was a regular in feuds in which he fought throughout the 'Attitude Era' of the late 90s and early 00s but he hasn't been involved in a fight since WrestleMania XXVI in 2010.
There he took on Bret Hart, the man he screwed at Survivor Series 1997, losing a No Holds Barred Match and bringing his characters story full circle.
Before the event in 97', known as the Montreal Screwjob, the company's CEO had only been on screen as a commentator but that night, and the following night in his infamous 'Bret screwed Bret' promo, the 'Mr Mcmahon' heel character was born.
McGregor certainly has the right attributes to make it in WWE, whether he ever gets to fight McMahon or not, but the bigger question is whether he's really done with UFC.
He took a dig at former opponent Dustin Poirier following the Diamond's win at the weekend against Dan Hooker and rematches with Khabib Nurmagomedov and Nate Diaz could also persuade him back.
