At the moment over in the WWE, women’s champion Becky Lynch is making headlines as one of the most popular stars on the roster.

And, with her confident, brash demeanour and a take no prisoners attitude, Lynch is getting plenty of comparisons to a similar countryman of hers, Conor McGregor. But while Lynch might recognise and accept the comparison — she’s not taking it and just being left happy.

Responding to the talk on her social media today, Lynch remarked that she “channels no one. [McGregor] & me are bonded as Irish brother & sister. But if I ever got within 2 miles of him I’d break that bond, and his arm, in three short seconds. I’d be too tempting; he’d completely understand too. Proper12 after.”

While those might be fighting words, a retweet from the first ever UFC double champion showed that there’s nothing but love.
