And while he awaits his next challenge following the global spread of coronavirus, McGregor appears to be enjoying the free time.

Posing in a floral shirt, the 31-year-old replicated a painting behind him by holding a huge wedge of cash.

The MMA star appears in peak condition with his bulked torso and arms bursting out of his shirt.

Alongside the image, he wrote the caption: "Damn right I like the life I live."

McGregor has been keeping busy during the pandemic and has played his part in helping hospitals across Ireland.

After donating £920,000 of his own cash to hospitals, he followed it up by delivering PPE to 165 different locations.

It is claimed there were around 50,000 items of PPE supplied by McGregor in total.

McGregor will be hoping it won't be long before he steps back into the Octagon following the sport's return behind closed doors.

It was claimed UFC president Dana White held a meeting on Tuesday to discuss his future as he bids to earn a rematch against Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Nurmagomedov is in line to defend his lightweight title against interim champion Justin Gaethje, who won the belt at UFC 249 with an upset over Tony Ferguson.

And White reiterated on Saturday that 33-year-old Gaethje will fight Nurmagomedov, 31, with The Notorious instead being forced to face another challenge.

White said: "We're going to do Khabib and Gaethje in September.

"We'll see what happens with Conor this summer, but I'll be back in the office matchmaking.

"We're going to get back to work and the matchmaking meeting is on Tuesday."

CNN’s Tapper ripped for retweeting post calling Trump ‘insane’

CNN’s Jake Tapper took heat Tuesday for retweeting a post from conservative lawyer George Conway — a frequent critic of President Trump and the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway — that called the commander-in-chief “100% insane.”

The CNN anchor on Monday retweeted Conway’s post, which said Trump “is 100% insane and nobody in the administration has the balls to tell him that,” The Hill reported.

Tapper retweeted it again Tuesday while adding: “Noteworthy comment on folks in the administration from a Trump critic who knows a lot of them.”

Critics said Tapper was supporting Conway’s harsh characterization of Trump, who has frequently ripped Conway himself.

Tapper insisted Conway’s barb “seems newsworthy given how many people in the administration he knows.”

“I RTed Conway, a conservative attorney and Trump critic, because he wrote that no one in the administration has the courage to stand up to the president which seems newsworthy given how many people in the administration he knows,” Tapper tweeted, attempting to explain his motives. “RTs do not nec. = agreement.”

The critics included Johnathan Turley, the only Republican witness during the House impeachment hearings.

Turley, a George Washington University law professor and a contributor to The Hill, ripped Tapper, saying his retweet “only further undermines the media by reaffirming for many that the media is campaigning against Trump rather than covering him.”

Others defended Tapper.

New York magazine writer Jonathan Chait said Tapper “merely observed” that Conway’s comments were “noteworthy.”

Trump in the past has called George Conway “a stone cold LOSER” and “husband from hell!” on Twitter.

“George Conway, often referred to as Mr. Kellyanne Conway by those who know him, is VERY jealous of his wife’s success & angry that I, with her help, didn’t give him the job he so desperately wanted. I barely know him but just take a look, a stone cold LOSER & husband from hell!” he wrote last year.

But the attacks did not deter Conway, who rips the president almost daily, and who has denied that he ever sought a White House job, though he initially supported the president.

“Like all pathological narcissists, he accepts no responsibility, and he rejects all accountability,” he wrote Tuesday about Trump’s firing of and feuds with government watchdogs overseeing his administration.

The president has also gone after Tapper, and the CNN journalist uses one presidential quote in his Twitter bio.

“Jake Tapper … I know; you don’t like him. Who likes him? Who the hell can like him?” Trump said at a rally in February, a remark Tapper quickly added to his bio.
