But the undefeated Russian star says he wouldn't coach TUF against McGregor even if the UFC gave him $5 billion.
"This Ultimate Fighter with him?" The 28-0 fighter said. "This is good attention for him. I don't want to give him this. I never give him this.
"Even if they gave me 5 billion dollar - even if they give me UFC (ownership) - I'll never do this.
"This is good attention for him. It's done - everything is done. (On) October 6, I finished him and I finished everything about him."
Meanwhile, McGregor, whose only fought once this year, is set to return to the Octagon against Dustin Poirier on January 23 after accepting White's offer on social media.
I accept, Jan 23rd is on!
My goal is to see this fight take place in Cowboy stadium. Proper Style! Jerry Jones is a friend and the stadium can hold our crowd. I will be ready for Texas and Texas will be ready for my fans!
Then Manny. #McGregorSportsandEntertainment
