“Ask the UFC who the opponent is, because I do not give a f— who the opponent is,” McGregor said, speaking at an event for his sponsor Parimatch, a Russian betting website.

The return bout, McGregor said, will be “the beginning of my season,” and he plans to fight three times next year.

McGregor said after January that he will seek to face the winner of the UFC 244 main event between Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal. McGregor is picking Diaz to win that fight. After that, McGregor said he wants to fight for the UFC lightweight title against the winner of a potential matchup between champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson.

“That is the bout we want,” McGregor said. “We want this bout in Moscow. The people of Russia deserve this bout to take place. The people of the world deserve this bout to take place.”

At the news conference, McGregor said he regrets not being focused on his fight with Nurmagomedov and vowed to return to his previous form beginning in 2020.

“The people who believe in me deserve better,” McGregor said. “It is an insult to the people that believe in me that I am not fully committed. So now I am coming back and I’m fully committed. And I am eager to come back and show the best of myself for my fans around the world.”

McGregor sells PPV’s, and that’s what still make him the biggest draw in the UFC. 

I’ll tune in to whoever he’s fighting. . .
