UFC News: Conor McGregor says he wasn’t invited by WWE because he was ‘feared’

Conor McGregor claims he wasn’t invited to WrestleMania 38 because he’s feared in WWE. ‘The Notorious’ recently tweeted:

“Why wasn’t I at Wrestlemania? They all fear me, that’s why.”

Why wasn’t I at Wrestlemania? They all fear me, that’s why.

A possible WrestleMania appearance from McGregor was always expected, and the bookies even gave out decent odds in 2018. However, the Irishman was absent from New Orleans and now from the recently concluded event at AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas.

McGregor’s latest tweet drew a flurry of reactions from WWE Superstars. Becky Lynch, who lost the RAW Women’s Championship to Bianca Belair, believes the Irishman could have helped her.

@TheNotoriousMMA Hey man. I could have used you Bianca brought an army with her. Next year?

But other stars like Dolph Ziggler, Sheamus and Drew McIntyre immediately hit McGregor back.


Conor McGregor believes he will develop a unique style on UFC return

Conor McGregor is currently rehabilitating the broken leg he sustained in his third encounter with Dustin Poirier. While the Irishman has lost his last three lightweight bouts, he hasn’t been shy about claiming a title shot on his return. Both UFC honcho Dana White and lightweight champion Charles Oliveira appeared open to the idea.

But McGregor has since shifted his focus, asking Kamaru Usman for a welterweight title shot. Regardless of who he fights, it’s safe to assume that Notorious will return later this year if things go well. The former two-division champion recently announced he has been given the green light to spar from April.

McGregor also believes he will develop a very different style before returning to the octagon. The 33-year-old said that in a recent interview Heavy MMA:

“April, they said I can spar again and I can basically box again. So I just take it day by day. Hopefully now that I’m back to sparring I know the weight, I know the feeling, I know my own style, you know what I mean? I’m going to develop a different style I might imagine, so I’ve been shadow boxing a bit lately and I feel like I’m just finding my feet. But i feel good. I’m on my feet, I can stop and start and take off. It’s just the little twists or torques that I have to be careful with.”
