The Sun is reporting that WWE recently had reached out to UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor and presented him a "hefty" offer, which the Irish Superstar declined.
"WWE has made no secret of its desire to do something with Conor McGregor and there were talks between the two parties about this year," a source told The Sun. "Because he's taking time off from the UFC, there was a talk about doing something at this year's Wrestlemania in April, but it wasn't to be despite a hefty offer."
Triple H did admit in public he'd love to have McGregor make some WWE appearances when he had attended UFC 205 last November at Madison Square Garden.
"He [McGregor] could come over, he's got it all, man - he's got the personality, the skills, the talk. He's an entertainer, for sure," Triple H told The Telegraph. "What does he walk around at? 180lbs? I have smaller guys now in the WWE. We have 200lb guys who are stars. You don't need to be 300lbs any more.
He could do just as well as Floyd Mayweather when he fought the Big Show. That really worked. Conor could do it for sure."
