As a result, 'The Notorious' has made waves in the UFC pound-for-pound, lightweight and welterweight rankings.

He has moved two places in the pound-for-pound rankings to 11 while climbing one place in the lightweight rankings to 3, moving above Justin Gaethje.

McGregor, meanwhile, wants his next fight to be a rematch with bitter rival Khabib Nurmagomedov, according to UFC president Dana White.

Speaking after UFC 246, he said: "Conor wants Khabib. Conor always has a lot of options. He wants Khabib, that's the fight he wants, and we'll see what happens... I think Khabib makes sense, too."

The Irishman has plenty of options on the table with fights against Nate Diaz, Jorge Masvidal, Kamaru Usman and Justin Gaethje all mooted, and he's ready to take any of them.

"I like this weight division. I feel really good. God willing, I came out of here unscathed, I'm in shape," he said after putting 'Cowboy' away in Las Vegas.

"I don't believe I'm there yet, though. I've still got work to do to get back to where I was.

"I'm going to party tonight and spend time with my family and then get back into the gym and train.

"[I'll take] anyone of these mouthy fools can get it. All of them. Every single one of them, it doesn't matter. I'm back and I'm ready."
