And pressed on when he believes he will become a billionaire, McGregor, with an estimated £100m net worth, replied: “35 years of age.”

The Notorious is the highest paid UFC fighter in history, and also banked around £80m for his 2017 boxing match against Floyd Mayweather.

His Proper 12 Irish whiskey, which was released in 2018, also raked in £750m in its first year.

McGregor – who just bought a £2.7m Lamborghini yacht – has not fought since knocking out 37-year-old Donald Cerrone in 40 seconds in January.

He is set to return in the new year, with a rematch against Dustin Poirier – who he beat in 2014 – now a done deal, according to UFC boss Dana White.

Asked who is toughest opponent was, McGregor answered: “Nate Diaz. The west coast zombie.”

Diaz, 35, in 2016 became the first to beat The Notorious in the UFC, but lost the rematch five months later.

The third and final decider has evaded fans so far, but McGregor is adamant they will settle their series.

He said: “The trilogy will be of epic proportions when it goes down.

“Nathan, and his fighting styles, are never far from my thoughts throughout my own practices.

“When it happens, I’m ready.”

The Dubliner first faced Diaz at UFC 196, as the American replaced then-lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos on short notice.

As a result, McGregor moved up from featherweight to welterweight, where he fought Diaz on both occasions.

The southpaw star returned to 170lb for his comeback this year, but appears to be facing Poirier at lightweight.

But McGregor still has one eye on the welterweight division, where Kamaru Usman, 33, reigns as champion.

He tweeted: “I will commit to the 155lb division for 2021 however. Some great matchups to be had here, as well as unfinished business.

“I will show the world once again who I am, and what I’m about. Trust that! 170 is in my thoughts also however.

“You know me for doubling up…”

McGregor has not been victorious at lightweight since winning the belt against Eddie Alvarez in 2016.

He was later stripped of the title as he put his UFC career on hold to face Mayweather, losing in ten rounds.

He returned to 155lb in 2018 but lost against bitter rival Khabib Nurmagomedov.

And his hopes of a rematch have also taken a hit, after Nurmagomedov, 32, announced a shock retirement after beating Justin Gaethje, 31, last month.

McGregor offered his rival rare praise, but hinted unbeaten Khabib’s decision to walk away comes from fear of losing to him.

He explained: “A phenomenal grappler fighter. The current best in the sport with it.

“I’ve the answer however and they know it.”
