Conor McGregor is already so rich he may never fight again, according to UFC president Dana White.

The Irishman is yet to lock in his next bout after his monumental boxing match with Floyd Mayweather, the richest fight in boxing history.

Three months have passed since then, and a whopping 13 have gone by since his last bout in the octagon.

White admitted on Tuesday McGregor has done so well and has made so much money there might not be any motivation left.

"Conor might never fight again," White told reporters at UFC headquarters.

"The guy’s got $100 f**king million. I’ve got guys that made less than that and were f**king lawyers and went to school their whole life and quit working.

"When you go to school your whole life to be a lawyer, and you’re a good lawyer, and you make a few bucks and you’re done? The guy's sitting home every day watching cartoons or whatever he’s doing. I don’t know.

"(Former UFC matchmaker) Joe Silva doesn’t work any more. These guys make money and that’s it.

"Fighting is the worst. Try to get up and get punched in the face every day when you have $100 million in the bank. Money changes everything with a lot of people."

White admitted there's nothing he can do if McGregor tells him he wants to wrap things up.

"Everybody always says to me, 'You have to want this guy to fight. You’ve got to want this guy to fight,' " White said.

"I don’t want anybody to fight unless they want to fight. This isn’t a business where you can just make people fight. You either want it or you don’t. That was my big thing with [Georges St-Pierre]. He wasn’t acting like a guy who really wants it. At the end of the day, I’m going to run this business with or without anybody.

"If Conor wants to fight again, absolutely we want Conor to come fight. But if Conor walks away and doesn’t ever want to fight again, it’s part of the game."
