Conor McGregor became the first fighter in UFC history to hold two belts simultaneously earlier this month, when he knocked out Eddie Alvarez in the second round of their UFC lightweight title bout at UFC 205 in Madison Square Garden. McGregor now holds both the UFC lightweight belt and featherweight, which he won last year when he knocked out longtime featherweight kingpin, Jose Aldo, in just 13 seconds.

McGregor wants shares in the UFC

After McGregor's victory at UFC 205, the Irishman announced at the post-fight press conference that he would be taking some time off from the sport to welcome his first child with longtime girlfriend Dee Devlin.

McGregor also made it clear that he wanted to have a "talk" with UFC president Dana White and the organization's new owners, who bought the company earlier this year for an estimated $4 billion, before he fought again. McGregor said that he knew what "his worth" was to the company and that he wanted to be fairly compensated, even claiming that he wanted "shares" in the company before moving forward.

McGregor to the WWE?

McGregor now holds the advantage from a negotiation standpoint with the UFC, as the Irishman holds two of the companies belts and is at this point undeniably the biggest draw in the short history of the sport. McGregor has made no secret of his financial incentives and his agent, Audie Attar, has revealed in a recent interview that the 28-year old McGregor may be considering a move to the WWE.

Attar has claimed that if the WWE were to come in with an offer for McGregor, that the Irishman and himself would be "willing to entertain it", stating that "we can have a conversation."

McGregor and his history with the WWE

McGregor has had a turbulent relationship with the WWE to date. During a press day for his rematch with Nate Diaz at UFC 202, McGregor took aim at the stars of WWE labeling them as "p**sies" and in particular WWE's John Cena, who he criticized for being "40-years of age" and wearing "luminous clothes." He also described Cena as a "big, fat, failed Mr.

Olympia."

However, McGregor's past indiscretions with WWE superstars will only fuel further speculation that the "Notorious" one could be set for at the very least an appearance at a future WWE event, especially with the Royal Rumble and Wrestlemania coming up. UFC superstar Ronda Rousey appeared as a one-off at Wrestlemania 31 alongside Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and WWE owner Vince McMahon allowed Brock Lesnar to compete at UFC 200 earlier this year, whilst still under contract with the WWE, which would suggest that another deal between the WWE and UFC could be made to allow McGregor to appear in the WWE in the near future.
