Conor McGregor Teases Boxing Bout With Manny Pacquiao

When White told him there was no such event, he then proposed the idea of taking on Diego Sanchez in Dublin - which the 51-year old was not in favour of whatsoever.

They then discussed the possibility of taking on Justin Gaethje, with McGregor wanting a May bout but White explaining they could only do July at the earliest.

McGregor would then reveal the final part of the exchange to show how he was never interested in stepping in as a replacement for the cursed Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Tony Ferguson bout that was nixed for a fifth time due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

The Irishman wanted to fight on his terms, telling White, "the people want a McGregor event, let's give it to them!"

In June, McGregor claimed he was "bored" of the current situation in UFC as "nothing excites" him.

He took to Twitter to make the bombshell retirement announcement before explaining his reasons in an interview with ESPN.

"The game just does not excite me, and that's that," he said.

"All this waiting around. There's nothing happening. I'm going through opponent options, and there's nothing really there at the minute. There's nothing that's exciting me."
