While in New York this week supporting a local charity, UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor fielded questions from reporters while signing autographs. McGregor was asked about fellow MMA Superstar Ronda Rousey’s recent signing and debut at the Royal Rumble with WWE.
McGregor was very supportive and seemed genuinely happy for Rousey. McGregor said:
“I’m delighted for her. Absolutely over the moon for her. She looked like she really enjoyed herself at the event, and I was very, very happy to see her. She’s a pioneer for the game and she’s came through it all and faced big wins and big, big losses. It’s great to see her represent herself and MMA, and have fun in WWE. I know she’s been a big fan all her life, so it’s great to see that.”
It was confirmed yesterday that Ronda Rousey will be appearing at WrestleMania 34 on April 8th, 2018 in New Orleans. Vince McMahon tweet Rousey wishing her a happy birthday, and added that he would “see her @WrestleMania”.
