And it looks like we will have to wait some time before we see McGregor back in the Octagon as UFC President Dana White has revealed his plans for the organisation's UFC lightweight champion and undisputed pay-per-view king.

Zahabi, known for his philosophical approach in mixed martial arts, is all praises for McGregor's physical ability and fighter's mentality.

"He had come out earlier and said that, so that's why people were asking me about it, and I said don't count anything out on him coming over to the UFC, that anything is possible".

"There is no status", White told ESPN. Instead, he attempted to fight for the lightweight title but Rafael dos Anjos suffered an injury and McGregor instead jumped up to the 170-pound weight class to face Nate Diaz in March of 2016. "So, how has he never defended the title?"

He ran for Florida state representative in 2014 as a Republican and lost in a primary election by fewer than 175 votes. On his website , Shannon said he began practising law in 1975, and had focused on "personal injury and death" cases.

While most didn't take Mayweather seriously and simply believed it was a form of mind games from the undefeated boxing king, things really heated up when Mayweather broadcasted a live Periscope video in which he claimed he could go to the UFC and make a billion dollars for a few fights. White is hopeful that McGregor can return no later than summer of 2018 but wouldn't say who his opponent might be. "He fought everybody on his way up 145 pounds". The Irish champ, who reportedly banked more than $100 million for "The Money Fight", has said he wants an ownership stake in the UFC, which White won't entertain.

One person you won't have to worry about seeing the Irishman fight, according to White, is Georges St-Pierre.

While away, Tony Ferguson won the interim lightweight title by stopping Kevin Lee in October and has called out McGregor for a unification bout.
