("Notorious" Conor McGregor)

CONOR McGREGOR is in talks to make a one-off special appearance on the WWE, SunSport can exclusively reveal.

The UFC lightweight champion is taking time off after losing his moneyspinning debut pro boxing bout to Floyd Mayweather in August.

However, the Irish Sun has learned the Dublin bruiser is in talks to get back into the ring for a megabucks wrestling match against one of World Wrestling Entertainment’s biggest stars.

Crumlin fighter Conor, 29, is a long-time fan of wrestling and has even adopted WWE promoter Vince McMahon’s infamous ­‘billionaire strut’ when he enters the UFC Octagon.

SunSport understands that a deal is close with WWE top brass but the match is likely to be delayed until next year — with a possibility of him appearing in April’s Wrestlemania event.

A source said: “Conor is a huge wrestling fan. His entire persona on stage he has developed from watching performers like Ric Flair and The Rock.

“These are the top dogs at self-promotion and trash talk. He watched these guys when he was younger.

“This is something he’s always wanted to do.

“The WWE guys have asked him to do shows before with them but the timing was never really right.

“But this time it looks like a deal is going to be locked into place.

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.
