The UFC interim champion aimed a dig at McGregor who walked away from the UFC in June, but he has teased a comeback.

"I tweeted that he [Conor] is losing his clout," he told Brett Okamoto. "I don't mean [that] in general, like with the general public.

"But with fighters, man? This guy, he's losing so much respect in the game, [about] which he probably doesn't care.

Gaethje added: "He doesn't hold the cards right now! I put myself in a great position! I asked for a say in my destiny, and I went out there.

"And I showed up. I'm in a spot where I can pick between Khabib and Conor.

"If I wanna fight Conor, I can fight Conor. Believe me. Of course, why wouldn't Dana put [that fight] together? But that's not the fight I want!

"His only [play] is he's 'Mr. Red Panty-Night'. Not everybody's a greedy motherf**ker like him. I think, for one, whenever I beat Khabib and then I beat Conor, in these times, under this microscope, [that is] legendary."
