According to a report by MMAFighting.com, current UFC Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor went off on the idea of ever being involved with pro wrestling or the world of sports entertainment when asked by a reporter during a conference call for UFC 202.
“For the most part, those WWE guys are p*ssies, to be honest. They’re messed up p*ssies, if you ask me. Fair play to Brock (Lesnar), he got in and fought, but at the end of the day he was juiced up to the f*cking eye balls, so how can I respect that? And then what’s the other guy? The other guy (CM Punk) hasn’t fought yet, so I don’t know about him yet.”
McGregor, who will face Nate Diaz at UFC 202 in a rematch, wasn’t all together critical of WWE and gave some credit to the McMahon family and others.
“There’s some dons in that wrestling game. The McMahons, they’re dons. Triple H is a don. The Rock is a don. But the rest of them are p*ssies. I haven’t really thought of that to be honest. Again, that’s a little more show business. This is the fight business.”
