Conor McGregor wants to be in WWE star Becky Lynch’s corner

Conor McGregor and Becky Lynch joining forces? We’re here for it.

The past few weeks have shown that Becky Lynch is an absolute star.

While she was doing the best work of her life in the WWE, she suffered a nasty concussion days before a massive fight against Ronda Rousey.

The WWE then released a touching video of her reaction to this news, which only furthered the love that fans has for her at the moment.

And now, The Notorious Conor McGregor has spoken to show his support to his fellow Irish warrior.

Quoting an article written by Apple News, Becky Lynch went out of her way to make sure that she was not “channeling her inner Conor McGregor”, as the article said.

She said that if he got within two miles of him, she’d break his arm in three short seconds. Purely because it’d be “too tempting”. She did clarify that they would share a glass of Proper 12 afterwards though…

(Proper 12 is Conor’s own brand of Whiskey, FYI).

McGregor clearly respected the angle Lynch took, replying: “Call me when you need Proper back up.”

What do we think? A McGregor/Lynch stable titled “The Proper Team”? We reckon it would be a hit.

Even Ariel Helwani, the leading MMA journalist, has been singing Lynch’s praises.

On his weekly podcast, Helwani said:

“Can I tell you what my favourite combat sports story of the week is? There is one that is so much more in tune than anything else going on.

“Number one by far, massive gap between number one and two. Can’t get enough, all in. All my chips in. Intoxicated by it!

“Any guesses? Two words: The Man. Becky Lynch. There was one fighter, and I’ll call her a fighter, and one fighter only, who could have tapped in to Ronda’s MMA career. And she has done it perfectly. And become a star. And the way she’s done it! I am all in.

“There was one opportunity to do it right. She nailed it.”
