'The Notorious' fighter rematched Poirier for a second time and was hoping for a repeat result of their UFC 178 encounter in 2014 but it was 'The Diamond' who emerged victorious courtesy of a TKO in the second round.
Poirier picked up the biggest win of his career to avenge his previous defeat and inflicted McGregor's third loss inside the Octagon.
It was also the first time McGregor had been knocked out in UFC, with his other two losses coming via submission at the hands of Nate Diaz and Khabib Nurmagomedov respectively.
And it didn't take long for Paul to taunt McGregor over his showing. Having constantly called out the Irishman through all sorts of shenanigans and offered him $50 million for a boxing fight, the 24-year-old laughed at McGregor and now claims to have downgraded the proposed payment to $10,000.
Earlier this week, McGregor was asked about Paul and addressed the 2-0 boxer's antics.
"You know, that is what it is," he told BT Sport.
"We'll see what happens, he seems like a confused little kid to me, to be honest.
"He's willing to get in there, I don't know what'll happen, it's not on the radar at the minute with the young lad.
"I have a teammate [Dylan Moran] - him and Dylan have been back-and-forth, so you never know."
Having been away from the Octagon for 371 days after his explosive win over Donald Cerrone last year, McGregor lamented inactivity and pledged to fight again in 2021.
