There are reports circling in Conor McGregor's hometown of Dublin, Ireland, that the current UFC Lightweight Champion is set for a stint with the WWE. 

The Irish Sun is reporting, McGregor a lifelong WWE fan, is in the final stages of signing a deal that will see the UFC megastar compete in a wrestling match at Wrestlemania 34 in New Orleans next year. 

A source close to McGregor told the Sun, a deal is on the cards with the current time period seen as the perfect fit for the brash Irishman. 

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

"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."

In the past, McGregor has thrown some jabs at the WWE where he called some of the current crop of Superstars "a bunch of dweebs" and “messed up ­pu**ies" during an interview last year.
