'The Notorious' announced he will be fighting Manny Pacquiao earlier this week in his first boxing match since taking on Floyd Mayweather in 2017.
McGregor's announcement came after he shared a series of messages between himself and UFC president Dana White discussing future fight plans prior to retirement.
It has left the Irishman questioning the promotion's "f**ked up" decision to leave him inactive for most of the year.
"I'd rather fight MMA anyway not sure why I've been held back like this, it's borderline criminal at this stage," he begun on Instagram.
"The biggest number generator in the game asking for four fights since February this year and getting left on seen.
"It's pretty f**ked up when I keep thinking of it. I've been right here this whole time.
"Bob Chapek, do you copy! I repeat, Bob Chapek - Do You Copy!
"Anyways boxing it is for now and I'm up for this! I hope no bottling takes place here.
"I'm already agreeing to these limited rules and holding back my full array of weapons. Let's get it going guys.
"Much love, the champ champ."
McGregor also addressed the 'experts' that think he is doomed to fail in his bid to beat 'Pac-man.'
Alongisde a photo of himself fighting Mayweather, he explained: "The very first shot of the fight. Right on the button through the guard. I didn't even put anything into that shot. Just placed it.
"It was hard for me not to dwell on the full 12 rounds that were potentially ahead of me and hold back my shots early.
"Still tho right on the absolute button. The first punch thrown. Remember the experts saying I wouldn't land even 1 lol.
"I landed more than them all. The picture above is the very first punch of the fight thrown, and landed, and inside the very first second of the fight.
"Bums all of them "experts". Listen to none of them! Really I should have just sat right thru that shot and took his head off and f*** the distance.
"If it didn't work out just give him a good boot into the neck and get DQ'd and fined and who'd give a f***.
"I'm upset I fully followed the rules for that fight to be honest. Floyd deserved a volley at the least. A shoulder even, break the face.
"Manny not so much tho I don't think, but I will see how the build up goes and wait to hear what bitter old Freddie Roach has to say and then make a decision."
