Irish superstar Conor McGregor has refused to rule out a U-turn on his retirement after admitting he is in "full confidence in what lies ahead."
The 32-year-old former UFC star made his sensational return to MMA back in January with a stunning first-round victory over Donald Cerrone at UFC 246.
The future UFC Hall of Famer's MMA future still remains uncertain, despite him quitting the sport for the third time in the space of four years.
However, McGregor has now insisted that he feels "very blessed and pretty motivated" at the moment and "great things are happening."
The 'Notorious' said: "I'm going down there at 100 miles an hour with no breaks and full confidence in what lies ahead and great things are happening, I'm very very blessed and pretty motivated."
McGregor insisted that his success, both inside the octagon and out of it, came down to his "insane work ethic."
The former UFC double champ explained: "What got me to where I am and where I continue to go and where I will continue to go is an insane work ethic and it's an insane work ethic that can only put in that amount of work."
McGregor previously claimed that he retired from MMA because it "does not excite me" and he has become "bored" of the sport.
The former UFC star once again reiterated the importance of passion and the importance it holds in committing in something he cares about.
"You cannot fully commit to something if you're not passionate about it," McGregor said.
"You must look at your surroundings at the things you were involved in and ask yourself are you truly passionate about these that you truly want to put every ounce of your being into these things."
