"Just coming back around after a whirlwind couple of days," McGregor posted on Instagram.

"... It truly was an amazing and enjoyable camp, and honestly I feel with just a little change in certain areas of the prep, we could have built the engine for 12 full rounds under stress, and got the better result on the night."

McGregor, who made his professional Boxing debut against Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather in a 155 pound bout lost but TKO in the 10 round at the T-mobile Arena in Las Vegas on the 26th of August, 2017, which left the boxing legend with a new world record of 50 wins with out a loss or a draw (50-0).

"Congrats to Floyd on a well fought match," McGregor posted on Instagram . "Very experienced and methodical in his work. I wish him well in retirement. He is a heck of a boxer. His experience, his patience and his endurance won him this fight hands down.

"I always told him he was not a fighter but a boxer. But sharing the ring with him he is certainly a solid fighter. Strong in the clinch. Great understanding of frames and head position. He has some very strong tools he could bring into an MMA game for sure."

Conor McGregor, also said the time he had to prepare for the fight wasn't enough and that, if he was given a little more time, he would stay 12 rounds long with the legend.
"Getting to 12 rounds alone in practice was always the challenge in this camp," he said. "
" I feel every decision we made at each given time was the correct decision, and I am proud of everyone of my team for what we done in the short time that we done it."
