Conor McGregor is the biggest star in the UFC, but he will continue looking for other ways to spend his time.

According to his agent, Audie Attar, McGregor will consider joining WWE if he receives an offer.

"I think it's all about business, man," Attar said on Tuesday's episode of the Five Rounds podcast, via Brian Campbell of ESPN.com. "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."

WWE executive and former world champion Paul "Triple H" Levesque recently noted McGregor could make the transition to WWE because he has "the personality, the skills, the talk" to make it work, per Gareth A. Davies of the Telegraph.

On the other hand, the UFC fighter has already made some enemies (warning: NSFW language) within the organization. He compounded his words with more discussion about his prowess in August:

If he doesn't start a career in WWE, McGregor could also continue trying to set up a fight against boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather Jr., who recently retired with a 49-0 career record. The Irish star recently said he would need "$100 million cash" before agreeing to a bout under boxing rules, per TMZ Sports

In the meantime, McGregor can focus on dominating in his current sport. The 28-year-old has a 21-3 career record and is currently the champion in both the featherweight and lightweight divisions. UFC.com lists him as the No. 2 pound-for-pound fighter in the world, behind only Demetrious Johnson.

After McGregor's win at UFC 205, UFC President Dana White noted he will not return to the Octagon until May, according to ESPN.com, as he's expecting the birth of his first child early next year.
