Dolph Ziggler has laid out a challenge to Conor McGregor, setting up a possible clash at WrestleMania 40.

After the sale of WWE to Endeavour, the parent company of UFC, the prospect of MMA fighters and WWE Superstars colliding has risen.

Fans and media have been speculating on dream matches, further fueled by Conor McGregor tweeting a photo of himself holding WWE Championships. Dolph Ziggler followed up and challenged the Notorious UFC fighter to a match.

The Two-Time WWE Heavyweight Champion responded to McGregor’s tweet, showcasing his desire to step in the ring with a man who has held UFC Championship in two weight levels.


PS: If I can drop 45 more pounds, I can drop anyone talking trash! seems even easier to get the deal done now, right @TheNotoriousMMA (Conor McGregor)”

Zigglar spoke to TMZ Sports about the prospect of fighting McGregor, explaining how he wants the chance to compete in a best of three, seeing the pair collide across multiple sports.

“Why not make it a best of 3? Octagon. Boxing match. Wrestling. Fighting. WWE. And then set it all up for the best out of seven at WrestleMania.”

“That’s just where the money is, but not everybody can go and back it up. But some of us can.”

Conor McGregor is the first fighter to hold UFC Championships in two weight classes simultaneously, after lifting the featherweight and lightweight Championships.

The Irish-born MMA star has already competed with a WrestleMania performer, when he took on boxing legend Floyd Mayweather in 2017.

Mayweather stepped into a WWE ring at WrestleMania 24 to face off with Big Show (Paul Wight). McGregor is one of UFC’s biggest draws, and after seeing Ronda Rousey’s success since joining WWE, it appears that he is ready to follow suit.

Should Ziggler get his way and WWE secure McGregor to a fight at WrestleMania 40, it would create a media frenzy and be a headline match as the Show of the Immortals heads to Philadelphia.

Ziggler meanwhile, has been looking back on an exceptional career, which includes one of the most memorable Money In The Bank cash-ins.

Appearing on Insight with Chris Van Vilet, the Six-Time Intercontinental Champion discussed his pride at the longevity of his WWE career.
