Former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor responded to a tweet from fellow Irishman and WWE Superstar Finn Balor on Friday, perhaps hinting at an appearance in the wrestling ring.

No more mr. nice guy! https://t.co/f9SNFts0vq

WWE Executive Vice President Triple H appears ready to welcome McGregor with open arms:

Triple H @TripleH

Just say when. https://t.co/9ppqM2DKbD

Balor has extended an invitation to the WWE ring before, responding to McGregor's MMA retirement tweet in 2019 as follows:

Finn Bálor @FinnBalor

@TheNotoriousMMA See you at ‘mania brother

Balor also once spoke with Sports Illustrated in 2017 and said McGregor would be a "natural fit" in the WWE.

We'll see if anything comes of this interaction. For now, McGregor is ranked as the No. 6 lightweight contender in the UFC, while Finn Balor is enjoying his second reign as the WWE NXT champion.
