SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch is often hailed as the Conor McGregor of WWE – both are thorough Irish, and Lynch’s in-ring aggression and trash/smack talk is quite similar to that of McGregor’s.
Besides, both these Irish athletes have a fiery temper and the sheer ability to constantly push through the naysayers. “The Man” and “The Notorious” do not take any guff from anyone and are always out there to prove their haters wrong.
In response to a recent article, Lynch tweeted that she was channeling her inner McGregor. Despite proudly holding up their Irish bond, the Irish Lasskicker also boldly stated that she would lock the devastating Dis-arm-her on the UFC megastar if the opportunity pops up.
The Man channels no one. @TheNotoriousMMA & me are bonded as Irish brother & sister. But if I ever got within 2 miles of him I’d break that bond, and his arm, in three short seconds. ? I’d be too tempting; he’d completely understand too. Proper12 after.

McGregor came across this verified tweet and politely responded:
Call me when you need Proper back up.

Last week, Lynch suffered a broken face at the hands of “Facebreaker” Nia Jax and is currently sidelined with a concussion. The Irish Lasskicker was pulled from Survivor Series and replaced with Charlotte Flair in the extremely physical match with RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey. Although there’s still no return date set for Becky, fans expect her to be (definitely) medically cleared by WrestleMania 35.
McGregor, the biggest pay-per-view draw in MMA history, suffered his fourth loss at the hands of Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 last month. The Notorious deeply respects Vince McMahon although he does bury WWE Superstars with his trash talk.
Since the tweet, the IWC has been actively speculating whether Conor will soon be pursuing a career in WWE. Ronda Rousey, former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion moved to WWE this past January and has been on an incredible babyface run so far.
Recently, Paul Heyman expressed his interest to manage McGregor in WWE. The former UFC Lightweight Champion has expressed to provide “backup” on Lynch’s call and that could only be possible if he steps foot in WWE.
Could a McGregor-WWE deal be on the horizon?
