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.’

McGregor’s defeat represents a huge setback to his plans to regain his lightweight title. The Irishman was hoping a victory over Poirier would set up a rematch with arch rival Nurmagomedov, having lost to the Dagestani in October 2018. 

Saturday’s loss, which is McGregor’s first defeat by knockout, leaves questions over his championship prospects.

‘That low calf kick was very good, my leg was dead and I wasn’t as comfortable as I wanted to be,’ he told Jon Anik. 

‘Dustin is some fighter. I have to dust it off and come back and that is what I will do. I need activity guys come on, you don’t get away with being inactive in this business. 

‘I’ll take my licks, I am gutted man I put in so much work. It’s a tough one to swallow. I would have liked to represent my team better but i’m gonna chill with my kids and that is it.’
