    Streaking UFC light heavyweight contender, Aleksandar Rakic has urged former two-weight champion, Conor McGregor to pursue a transition to professional wrestling in a bid to land himself some victories – off the back of current run of two straight defeats.

    Aleksandar Rakic, the current #3 ranked light heavyweight contender, is slated to headline a UFC Vegas event on May 14. – drawing former undisputed division titleholder, Jan Blachowicz in a reworked main event outing.

    For McGregor, the Dubliner has been sidelined since July of last year at UFC 264, where he suffered a fractured tibia in a trilogy rubber match against former interim lightweight champion, Dustin Poirier – suffering a second consecutive defeat for the first time in his professional mixed martial arts career.

    Still yet to book an opponent for an expected fall return as per UFC president, Dana White – McGregor has recently claimed that he wants to return against undisputed welterweight champion, Kamaru Usman in a bid to become the first three-weight champion in the history of the organization.

    Over the course of the weekend, McGregor questioned why he was not on-site in Dallas, Texas for professional wrestling event, Wrestlemania 38 hosted by WWE – claiming that he is feared.

    “Why wasn’t I at Wrestlemania?” Conor McGregor tweeted. “They all fear me, that’s why.”

    “Smart move to look already post real-fighting career and get some wins..,” Aleksandar Rakic replied to Conor McGregor.

    Before his cancelled UFC Columbus main event against Blachowicz recently – Rakic landed a pair of recent victories over both former light heavyweight title chasers, Thiago Santos, as well as Anthony Smith.
