Conor McGregor says he is now 'infinite times better' than he was against Floyd Mayweather and is 'excited to show' it

CONOR McGREGOR claims he is is now 'infinite times better' than he was against Floyd Mayweather and is 'excited to show' it on his return.

The former UFC champion tweeted to praise Gervonta Davis' stunning uppercut knockout against Leo Santa Cruz.

A fan replied by comparing the shot to one that McGregor landed on Mayweather in the opening stages of their 2017 boxing match.

According to the man himself, his ability has improved in the three years since, and he is waiting to prove it on his comeback.

McGregor, 32, posted: "They won’t let me fight again in 2020. But yes, that boxing bout was 3 years ago now.

"I am infinite times better than I was then. No question! Excited to show! Only got 40 seconds out the last time."

McGregor has not fought since January as he knocked out 37-year-old Donald Cerrone in the 40 second fight his tweet refers to.

He even retired in June having grown frustrated after being frozen out of the title picture.

McGregor did want to come back before the end of the year, but was denied by the UFC, who already had their remaining two pay-per-view headliners confirmed.

But Dana White has since revealed McGregor's UFC return to face Dustin Poirier at lightweight is a done deal.

The pair had both been offered a January 23 headliner but contracts were yet to be signed.

Now it appears an agreement has now been reached, after White addressed the situation following Anderson Silva's final UFC fight.

White said: "The fight's done, I think so, yeah.

"As far as I know it's done."
