WWE superstar Seth Rollins will wrestle Finn Balor Sunday at SummerSlam, but right now he's the latest to blast Conor McGregor for the outlandish comments the Irish superstar made about WWE wrestlers.

Rollins said McGregor is too small to be running his mouth, in an interview with ESPN.

"If he was serious about it, the guy's 5'6", 145 or whatever he walks around at, I don't know. You can see me here, I'm a full-sized human being so if he wants to come around and try to slap the face off me, or whatever insult he's got on the day, by all means step into our ring and see what you got."

McGregor recently called the WWE roster "p*****s" and said that he would "slap the heads" off every wrestler in the WWE. McGregor said what he does is "real fighting."

Rollins stands 6' 1" and 220 pounds and is widely regarded as one of the best wrestlers in the WWE.

Rollins said McGregor needs to drink some milk and gain some weight.

"I think he'd make a fantastic cruiserweight," Rollins said. "We've got a new cruiserweight division coming to RAW where the guys have to be 205 pounds or less so he could fit right into there," Rollins said. "If he wants to come into the ring with the heavyweights, he might have to eat a few more pizzas and drink a few more gallons of milk."

McGregor will fight Nate Diaz at UFC 202 Saturday night in Las Vegas.
