Two-division UFC world champion Conor McGregor is apparently considering to make a WWE stint next.

In August, "The Notorious" riled up the professional wrestling realm by making disparaging comments against the entire WWE roster. His statements had drawn the ire of legends such as Ric Flair, and some of the current superstars.

"For the most part, I think these guys are pussies, to be honest," McGregor said during an August conference call (via Rolling Stone). "They're messed up pussies if you ask me. Fair play to Brock [Lesnar]; he got in and fought, but at the end of the day, he was juiced up to the fucking eyeballs. How can I respect that?"

McGregor's views on professional wrestling may have changed after his monumental win at UFC 205 against Eddie Alvarez last November 12 in New York City. In an interview with ESPN's 5ive Rounds Podcast (via Bloody Elbow), the fighter's agent Audie Attar revealed that McGregor would be open to the idea, as long as the right deal would be in place. Attar even opened up an offer to the WWE, if they would want a partnership.

"I think it's all about business, man," Attar said. "If [WWE] is going to come with an offer, we are willing to entertain it. We are here. Have their people call his people. Which is me. We can have a conversation."

McGregor has established himself as a "money man", since breaking into mainstream superstardom in 2013. Most recently, he was involved in talks about a possible super fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr. For that fight alone, which is expected to rake in a huge revenue, McGregor already named his price.

"I want a $100 million cash to fight him under boxing rules because he's afraid of a real fight," McGregor said at his UFC 205 post-fight after party.
