MCGREGOR RETURNS TO BOXING
However, for those looking to see McGregor in action once again, footage of him making an appearance in Dublin will be cause for optimism.
That's because the former UFC champion made a return to Crumlin Boxing Club and decided to take on one of their amateurs boxers in front of a local crowd.
According to journalist Michael Benson, it marked the Irishman's first boxing match since the Mayweather loss and he managed to accumulate some light-hearted rounds.
Impressive stuff from McGregor.
Obviously, his opponent is only in the amateur ranks and neither fighter is taking things too seriously, but it's impressive that McGregor can hold his own outside of his main sport.
In typically flamboyant fashion, he can be seen showboating by putting his hands behind his back, while also showing some decent head movement to dodge incoming shots.
The result of the match isn't included within the video, although it can only be assumed that judges weren't used and there was certainly no sign of a stoppage.
Whether or not McGregor took part in the match as part of any preparation remains to be seen, but there is definitely plenty of options for him going forward. But it looked like a fund raising for his long time boxing gym as he handed the a check of unknown money to the owner of the gym and his former boxing coach.
He's made enough money to retire from the sport already - something he may well have done - yet the allure of the fight game just keeps bringing him back.
