Conor McGregor addresses his future following defeat by Khabib

Conor McGregor insists he will fight again as he bids to bounce back from defeat.

The former two-weight UFC champion was submitted by Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 earlier this month.

He is currently suspended for his role in the brawl that took place after the fight and will learn on Wednesday if the suspension will be extended indefinitely.

McGregor was ringside in Boston on Saturday night to watch compatriot Katie Taylor defend her world titles.

He then visited Taylor in her dressing room and she asked about his future plans.

"We’re looking to get back in, of course," McGregor said.

"We’ll see what happens. Obviously, there is stuff with the Nevada Atletic Commission; so they’ll make a judgement on that and we’ll go from there."

The 30-year-old preferred to focus on Taylor’s achievements and was full of praise for the WBA and IBF champion.

He added: "It is an honour to see you live. Big respect Katie, honestly.

"You were enjoying it; hand behind your back. But they should have given you a microphone [after you won].

"You’re in your environment… but honestly, honestly, you put all of us to shame. You are a special talent.

"So just keep doing your thing. I have your back all the way. I’ll back you all the way; whatever you need.

"It is an honour for me to come and see you. You’re an Irish hero, and I mean that."

McGregor tapped in the fourth round of his fight against Nurmagomedov as he lost his challenge for the lightweight title.

His opponent then jumped over the cage in a bid to attack McGregor’s teammate Dillon Danis.

McGregor himself was punched by a member of Nurmagomedov’s team in the Octagon as chaos erupted in the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Both men are looking at bans and fines following the ugly scenes.

Nurmagomedov has called out Floyd Mayweather since his win but a fight between the pair is a remote possibility.
