McGregor is now free to compete in the UFC again after the suspension he was handed for his part in the melee which followed his October fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov expired.

Last week he opened the door for a return to the sport having previously claimed he had set aside his gloves for good to enjoy life outside the Octagon.

Speculation has since been rife that Conor McGregor could face a whole host of potential opponents if he makes comeback in Dana White’s UFC promotion.

However, he has opened the door to join Lynch in the WWE universe having seen the Irish Lass Kicker secure WrestleMania glory on Sunday night.

Lynch emerged victorious from an historic three-way scrap with Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair to become the simultaneous RAW and SmackDown Women’s Champion.

And her performance prompted McGregor to drop a hint he will be leaving UFC behind in order to try his hand at cracking WWE.

“Congrats to Irelands Becky Lynch, the WWE’s first Champ Champ. Wow!” McGregor wrote on Twitter.

“What a match these ladies put on! Ronda Rousey is something special in that ring, as is Charlotte Flair of the Flair dynasty!

“Stephanie McMahon you are right, I could not do what these athletes do. Or could I…”

McGregor’s comments came after Lynch, Rousey and Flair’s match became the first all-women’s fight to headline WrestleMania.

McGregor is not averse to stepping away from the UFC if a money-making opportunity comes his way.

In 2017, the 30-year-old fought Floyd Mayweather in a hugely lucrative boxing match in Las Vegas.

And, earlier this month, WWE chief Stephanie McMahon revealed she’s eager to welcome McGregor and recently retired NFL star Rob Gronkowski to her championship.

“Anybody who has a real big personality. I’d love to have Gronk in the ring. Conor McGregor, huge personality,” McMahon said.

“It’s really about bringing in the biggest personalities with the best athletic ability.”

When asked if there had been talks with that duo, McMahon said: “We are always having conversations.”
