Conor McGregor has finally reacted to Jake Paul's recent victory to Tyron Woodley.
While chatting to paparazzi after a physical therapy session, the Irishman was asked by a reporter about his thoughts on the bout.
His response was short but brilliant.
The person behind the camera asked: "What do you think of Jake Paul? The boxing mat-"
But before he could even finish his sentence, he was cut off by McGregor.
Shaking his head and looking off into the distance, the UFC megastar replied: "I don't really care."
Clearly distracted by something behind the paparazzi, he then changed topic altogether and pointed.
"Is that Arnold's car there, is it?! Wow," he said excitedly.
From looking very unimpressed when talking about Jake Paul, McGregor's face instantly lit up when glancing over at Arnold Schwarzenegger's fancy car.
Hobbling on his crutches, he then strolled over to get a closer look at the classic, soft-top vehicle parked outside the rehabilitation centre.
It turns out legendary bodybuilder-turned-Hollywood movie star Schwarzenegger's partner Heather is McGregor's physical therapist who is helping the Irishman recover from his devastating leg snap, so Arnie often pops by to give his old friend some added support.
McGregor, who is still on a long road to recovery, seemed fairly positive with his progress.
"Today was a good day for me," McGregor added.
"I beared weight for the first time today for the first time since surgery. I walked on the treadmill, bearing 50 per cent of my body weight so I'm very happy with it."

Trash-talking YouTuber Paul has openly spoken about wanting to fight McGregor, whether that be in a ring or a steel cage.
But the former UFC champion hasn't batted an eye lid when it comes to the Disney kid and even sparked wild confusion over the weekend by tweeting the word "salivating" just moments after Paul's bout with Woodley.
It turns out McGregor wasn't referring to Paul at all, he was actually prefacing a delicious pasta dish he was about to tuck into.
Thinking it was about him, a very-confused Paul got the wrong end of the stick and immediately fired back at McGregor in his post-fight press conference.
"We're on the path to a lot bigger fights, I'm salivating too because I'm just getting warmed up," he told reporters.
"Conor McGregor has a lot more to focus on besides me right now.
"I'm five wins in a row and he's 1-3 in the past four years, so the guy needs to get off his little vodka, whatever the f**k his brand is, and start sobering up and getting back in the f**king gym."
Despite all the hype around Jake Paul, McGregor is clearly more interested in checking out beautiful sports cars - as well as fixing his leg, of course.
