"He's still staying active, he's a lad who's won belts, he's done a lot, so I think he's that type of person who's always trying to try his hand at something different.

"I think WWE would suit him down to the ground. You know, we've had a lot of people come in and out, [Floyd] Mayweather came in, a lot of celebrities have come in, a lot of sports people.

"So I don't think anyone would raise eyebrows if he came in to WWE. I don't think it's if, I think it's a matter of when to be honest."

Former WWE champion Sheamus continued: "If he wants to come in there with me, that's grand. He might get the fight of his life there, he might get couple of slaps he's not used to.

"But that's what it's all about, getting in there and seeing a different type of environment."

McGregor spoke humbly following his loss to Poirier on Saturday night and is eager to mix it up with 'The Diamond' again.

"His leg kicks were good, my leg was dead and I wasn't as comfortable as I needed to be," McGregor said after a third loss in the UFC.

"I have to dust it off and come back and that's what I'll do.

"I'm gutted, it's a tough one to swallow, I just want to go back to the hotel and chill with my kids and regroup."
