There has been a lot of talk, most of it actually first reported right here at Fightful, about Ronda Rousey leaving MMA to train in professional wrestling in order to eventually sign with WWE. And now that the 'Money Fight' turned out to be such a rousing success, there's a certain loquacious little Irishman that some think could be the next MMA fighter on the WWE's radar.
During an interview with Sports Illustrated, Chris Jericho was asked about Conor McGregor's prospects for a career in WWE, and he had this to say:
"Will Conor McGregor end up in the WWE? I think it's a no-brainer. It might not be this year or the year after that because there's a lot of money that you got to spend to get him in there," Jericho said. "But a guy that yappy, who knows the concept of cutting a wrestling promo... I think Conor will definitely end up there, it's just a matter of when he wants to."
And oh by the way, Jericho hasn't forgotten about the former UFC Women's Bantamweight champion either.
"I also think Ronda Rousey will eventually end up (in WWE), one way or another as well."
