Following his UFC 205 win against Eddie Alvarez, Conor McGregor announced during the post-fight press conference that he was going to become a father next year.
Over the weekend, Dana White confirmed that McGregor will not fight again before the birth of his and girlfriend Dee Devlin's child in May.
What will fill the interim for McGreogr is uncertain. If the WWE was to come calling with an offer, McGregor's camp would be will to listen to an offer.
McGregor's agent Audie Attar told ESPN's 5ive Rounds podcast that ultimately, it's all about business for him and his client.
I think it's all about business, man. If [WWE] is going to come with an offer, we are willing to entertain it. We are here. Have their people call his people - which is me. We can have a conversation.
Asked if McGregor would be willing to participate in an actualy wrestling bout, Attar said, unsurprisingly, that any decision would be made based on how much money was on offer.
Again, I think ultimately Conor will say, 'Let me talk to my friend Benjamin [Franklin] to see how many of his friends he's bringing with him before we talk about what the obligations are.
There have been no formal talks between McGregor and the WWE. However, Paul Levesque, aka Triple H - the WWE's Executive Vice President of Talent - spoke positively to The Telegraph about McGregor at UFC 205.
He could come over, he's got it all, man - he's got the personality, the skills, the talk. He's an entertainer, for sure.
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.
McGregor's relationwhip with the WWE and its stars has mostly been a combative one. During a UFC 202 press conference, McGregor said that Brock Lesnar was 'juiced up to his fucking eyeballs'.
I didn't mean no disrespect to the @wwe fans. What I meant to say was that I'd slap the head off your entire roster. And twice on Sunday's.

During that same press conference he did offer some words of respect for Vince McMahon and family as well as Triple H and The Rock. Everyone else he described as 'fucking pussies'.
Attar says that McGregor does have a measure of respect for those who work with the WWE.
It's ultimately like, look - I think Conor had his say via social media at times, but he also is someone that appreciates people that sacrifice and train and are dedicated to their craft, whatever it may be.
