McGregor (21-4) has not fought since his UFC 229 loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov in October 2018.
Despite his absence from the Octagon, the UFC fighter has still found a way to stay in the headlines, thanks to a string of violent incidents that includes punching an elderly man in the face at a Dublin pub.
He showed remorse for his actions in an interview with ESPN.
