McGregor, who has won just ONE fight in the last five years, is expected to be out of action until at least 2022.

The former two weight UFC world champion has previously swapped the Octagon for the boxing ring when he fought Floyd Mayweather in 2017.

And in a Q&A chat with fans on social media he hinted at leaving MMA for good later in his career.

But he also insisted his leg would recover enough that he could win a world title in the UFC again in his career.

He wrote: “Possibly. The leg tho will be more than equipped to kick.

“I am billi walking straight to a title shot on my return and it sickens the bums of this business.

“Which is the real reason these constant disrespectful comments come by way. God bless them.”

McGregor has also predicted his two sons will follow his footsteps into the UFC when they’re older.

The Notorious welcomed the birth of his third child Rian earlier this year, while first born son Conor Jr is now four years old.

He responded in the Twitter Q&A: “That kid of mine is going to do whatever he wants in this world.

“I will support him all the way tho whatever he chooses! I feel he will do it tho. I feel his younger brother Rían will also.

“Interesting times ahead. I will be happy just as long as they are happy.”
