Current UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor is reportedly in talks with WWE for a one-off appearance at WrestleMania 34, according to a report by SunSport in the U.K. The report noted that “a deal is close” with WWE. In the past, it was reported that in January WWE presented McGregor with “a hefty offer,” which he declined.

“Conor is a huge wrestling fan. His entire persona on stage he has developed from watching performers like Ric Flair and The Rock,” a source told SunSport. “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.”

Last week, Stephanie McMahon discussed the possibility of McGregor making an appearance for WWE at a “Leaders in Sports” convention at Stamford Bridge.

“I think Conor would be a perfect fit with WWE,” McMahon said. “He certainly has the personality and the athletic ability, the appeal. He speaks his mind, he’s very genuine and authentic, and he has a hell of a Vince McMahon swagger.”
