AEW star and WWE legend Chris Jericho recently appeared on Keepin It 100 with Konnan. The former ‘Le Champion’ discussed a number of topics during the show, including Conor McGregor and his loss at UFC 264 and career beyond that.

‘Conor’s done and I think everyone knows it,’ Chris Jericho began on the podcast. ‘I think he knows it. I think the best thing that could’ve happened is that he snapped his ankle, because he would’ve lost in the second round.”

“Herb Dean almost called it at the end of the first, but he was letting it go because it was towards the end and it’s a championship, million dollar fight” Jericho continued.

“Not a championship but it was a million-dollar fight. Those elbows in the corner, man, once you get a guy down like that he’s finished.”

“If Dustin Poirier can get 50-50, take it. If not, see you later buddy. What’s the point? Conor’s done”

‘So I think it was actually a stroke of fate that’s going to end up making them all more money that Conor broke his ankle” Jericho claimed. “Because he would’ve been done in about another two minutes anyway.”

“The only thing I would say for Dustin, if he’s going to take a number four, which I would say ’˜go f**k yourself, I’m not doing it.’ I’d say ’˜okay, you want number four? I want a 50-50 purse split with Conor.’ See what happens” Jericho noted.

“If he can get 50-50, take it. If not, see you later buddy. What’s the point? Conor’s done’ Jericho would conclude.

Conor McGregor is still one of the biggest box office draws on the planet, and Chris Jericho is very good at handling the press and building his own hype. Is there a very slim chance that we see McGregor in AEW at some point? Maybe, but it’s one hell of a long shot.
