Austin Theory hasn’t been complacent since winning the WWE Tag Team Championship with Grayson Waller at WrestleMania 40.

A-Town Down Under has held the titles for 50 days as of this writing and has enjoyed significant success, from defending their titles against The Street Profits to featuring The Grayson Waller Effect internationally in Saudi Arabia.

In a recent interview with Battleground Podcast, Theory expressed ambitions for even bigger ventures, challenging several UFC fighters to a wrestling match.

“Is it Conor McGregor? Is that who we want? Is that who wants to step up to Austin Theory, the undefeated tag team champion?” Theory asked.

“I mean, maybe Conor’s so tough, maybe he just wants to fight both the tag team champions. So maybe he has a handicap match because, you know, his ego.

Because me and Grayson Waller, we don’t have egos, you know? We’re very set straight, we work hard, we’re champions. We show up to work, only if we’re not busy. So, Conor McGregor, maybe that’s the crossover.”

Though Theory and Waller are undefeated in tag team title defenses, they technically have a loss on their record.

After this interview, the team of LA Knight and The Street Profits defeated their brief partnership with Carmelo Hayes on the May 24 episode of “WWE SmackDown.” Nonetheless, Theory’s enthusiasm for a UFC/WWE crossover remained unabated.

“But really, any of the UFC guys. I mean, that’d be pretty cool to see, you know?” Theory elaborated.

“And watching those punches go from that to up on my shoulders into an A-Town Down, you know? Not ready for that! But I’m down. I’m down, I’m excited! Why not?”
