McGregor, however, walked away from the UFC in June after growing frustrated with the lack of opportunities - just six months after his triumphant comeback.

"I'm a bit bored of the game," the 32-year-old said after his third retirement in four years.

"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."

Will McGregor stay retired? Let us know what you think.
