McGregor delighted for Ronda Rousey joining WWE
Ronda Rousey and Conor McGregor are definitely two biggest stars the UFC ever produced. They both also got opportunities to fight outside of the Octagon.
McGregor fought in a boxing spectacle with Floyd Mayweather that earned the UFC lightweight champion an estimated life-changing $100 million payday. He also had a documentary on his life released by Universal Pictures late last year.
Rousey, meanwhile, already has been featured in several films and TV shows, and now is about to embark on a new endeavor as a pro wrestler after signing with WWE.
“I’m delighted for her, absolutely over the moon for her,” McGregor told reporters Wednesday night in New York. “She looked like she really enjoyed herself at the event, and I was very, very happy to see her.”
“She’s a pioneer for the game, and she’s came through it all and faced big wins and big, big losses, and she came through it, and it’s great to see her represent herself and mixed martial arts and have fun in WWE. I know she’s been a big fan of it through all her life, and it’s great to see that.”
