Conor McGregor worked you. All of you. You all bought it. Even his immediate family bought it.
Okay, maybe I'm going too far. Maybe not. Either way, Conor McGregor is no stranger to headlines in the worlds of MMA and pro wrestling. His interesting comments regarding WWE wrestlers being 'messed up pussies' created interview fodder for weeks leading up to the weekend of Summerslam and UFC 196. It's interesting to note that during all of his colorful wrestling-related comments, he made sure to not trash WWE Chairman Vince McMahon.
"There's some Dons in that wrestling game. The McMahons are Dons. Triple H is a Don. The wrestlers are pussies, man. That's a little more show business. This is the fight business," McGregor said
At UFC 196, McGregor took to the cage and unleashed a familiar trot -- the Vince McMahon strut. A fan on Twitter was quick to cleverly add McMahon's "No Chance In Hell" theme.

Well, look at that.
It's not the first time McGregor has paid homage to McMahon, as he did the same swagtastic in a video released in 2015. He went a step further, even singing the lyrics of Vince's infamous jam. You can check that out above.
What does all this mean for McGregor's potential WWE aspirations? Not a thing. But McGregor is incredibly self aware. If he tells us he has balls the size of grapefruits, then we'll talk.
