Critics and fans alike questioned the seriousness of McGregor's decision to hang up the gloves.

But White believes the former UFC double champion is well and truly done with fighting.

"No. Conor is retired," the UFC boss said when asked about McGregor's retirement claim.

McGregor only returned to the Octagon in January after a 15-month hiatus.

He thrashed Donald Cerrone in 40 seconds to record his first UFC win since November 2016.

But after growing frustrated with the promotion, McGregor opted to call it a day.

"I'm a bit bored of the game," he told ESPN. "I'm here watching the fight. I watched the last show - the [Tyron-Woodley-Gilbert Burns] show - I watched the show tonight. I'm just not excited about the game, Ariel. I don't know if it's no crowd. I don't know what it is. There's just no buzz for me.

"I had my goals, my plans, the season. I had everything laid out," he added. "Obviously the world has gone bleeding bonkers at the minute. There's f**k all happening at the minute. They want to throw me up and down weights and offer me stupid fights. I don't really give a f**k. I'm over it."
