Conor McGregor has pointed signs in the direction of Tony Ferguson being his next opponent when he returns to the UFC.

The Notorious was out in Dublin's Savoy cinema last night, as he attended the premiere of his documentary.

Speaking at the event, the UFC lightweight kingpin said he was 'passionate' about making a return to the Octagon, which he hasn't taken part in since winning the belt from Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 in New York last year.

Speaking to OffTheBall.com, he says the money needs to be right for any return to the promotion:

"I know my worth, it's important for a fighter to know their worth.

"The fight business is a dangerous, dangerous business and when it's all said and done, nobody gives a f*** about you, and that's the god honest truth."

Tony Ferguson has been mooted as a potential opponent for McGregor, after El Cucuy claimed the interim lightweight strap after beating Kevin Lee at UFC 216.

When asked about the possibility of facing Ferguson, McGregor said:

"We'll see what happens, possibly. It seems like that one.

"But, again, we're in contract negotiations and I know my worth. I'm going to seek my worth."
