McGregor started the “No more Mr. Nice Guy” gimmick after his recent loss to Dustin Poirier, as he wants to go back to being the trash-talking superstar who got in the heads of his opponents during the build-up to their fight.
Thanks for the support everyone! Was not my night/morning in there but a great contest to improve on. I’m excited at the blockbuster trilogy I now have on my hands. Dustin is a hell of a competitor and I look forward to going again. God bless us all, happy Sunday ❤️

McGregor working with WWE has been rumored for years, with reports in the past suggesting that WWE wants to use McGregor at a WrestleMania event (similar to what they did with Floyd Mayweather at WrestleMania 24 in 2008).
