During a recent media call to promote his upcoming UFC 202 bout against Nate Diaz on August 20th, UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor went off on the WWE when asked if he would consider a future career in the industry:
“For the most part, those WWE guys are pussies. They’re messed up pussies if you ask me.”
Former WWE stars are slowly building a tendency to jump into the Octagon, as former WWE Champions Brock Lesnar and CM Punk now actively compete for the mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion. In regards to Lesnar, McGregor stated, “at the end of the day he’s juiced up to the eyeballs…so how can I respect that?”
McGregor did, however, say that he is not too sure about Punk who has not yet made his Octagon debut:
“The other guy, he hasn’t fought yet so I don’t know about him.”
McGregor did note, however, that he does not have issues with the the McMahons, Triple H or The Rock.
