Conor McGregor (15-2) Is Looking To Take The UFC By Storm

During an interview with Robert Hynes of the Irish Mirror, Sheamus was asked if he would fight Conor McGregor in an MMA fight. Sheamus pointed out that that he weighs more than McGregor. Sheamus weighs 267 while McGregor weighs 145.

“He was having a go at WWE in these interviews he was doing. The first couple of times I let it go but then I decided to have a bit of craic and banter with him. If someone’s going to have a crack, that’s fine. Would I take Conor McGregor? No, he’s a lot shorter than me. I don’t think we’d be allowed fight—a heavyweight and a lightweight. Would I take him (if I had to)? Absolutely. Course I would. No one could take me. No one’s better than me. I could walk over anyone.”

For those not aware, Sheamus and McGregor do not get along on social media. McGregor once told Sheamus on Twitter that “you will wake up with no teeth and your nose on my mantle,” if they ever fought each other.

Their Twitter War went as follows:

Sheamus competed last night at WWE Hell in a Cell on the losing team of himself, Rusev and King Barrett. He is the current holder of the Money in the Bank contract that guarantees him an opportunity to cash in at any time, date or place to have a match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. He almost cashed in at the main event of the WWE Night of Champions Pay-Per-View but his plans were thwarted by a returning Demon Kane.

Conor is slated to take on Jose Aldo for the undisputed UFC Featherweight Championship at UFC 194 in December.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
