Throughout the long history of WWE, there have been several times when athletes from other major sports have stepped foot in the squared-circle - notable athletes such as Dennis Rodman, Lawrence Taylor, and Mike Tysonhave all gotten in the ring with some of the biggest names in professional Wrestling.

These days, most pro wrestling fans aren't too interested in seeing athletes from non-combat sports step inside a WWE ring. They are, however, interested in seeing some of the UFC'sbiggest stars, like Conor McGregor for example, make the move to WWE.

WWE teasing Roman Reigns vs. Conor McGregor

On Saturday, WWE.com published an article which teased a match between Roman Reigns - who is the current United States champion - and Conor McGregor - who has a chance to become the UFC'sfirst ever double champion at next month's UFC 205show.

Aside from Ronda Rousey, who will be making her return to the UFCin December, Conor McGregor is the fighter that WWEfans want to see step inside the ring the most. There's also a ton of possible opponents for the UFCmegastar, as he has major heat with a lot of people in WWE.

McGregor slams WWE; Roman responds

Over the summer, McGregor said a lot of unkind things about the WWE locker room leading up to his fight with Nate Diaz. His comments, which can be seen below, didn't go unnoticed by the WWEsuperstars, as most of them publicly responded to the UFC champ.

Roman Reigns was one of the many pro wrestlerswho responded to McGregor.

Other notable WWE stars who responded to McGregor include AJ Styles, Ric Flair, Chris Jericho, and Kurt Angle, all of which - with the exception of the retired Ric Flair, are potential opponents for the UFC star if he makes his way to WWE.

Could a Roman Reigns vs. Conor McGregor match happen in WWE? Well, that depends on if WWEand the UFCare able to work out a deal. As of right now, they have a pretty good working relationship, so the UFCmay not have an issue with loaning Conor McGregorto WWEfor one match.

If it does happen, expect it to happen at thebiggest show of the year; WrestleMania.
