  • Conor McGregor jetted out of Ireland on a private plane on Sunday evening
  • He shared a photo of himself reading a paper which had an article about him in
  • The Irishman captioned the image with 'don't read the paper, make the paper'
  • McGregor has had fans worried following a string of unsavoury incidents?
  • The UFC star's future is uncertain with Dana White saying he might not return

Conor McGregor has taken to Instagram to poke fun at those questioning if he is spiraling out of control.

The UFC star has been involved in a number of unsavoury incidents since losing on his boxing debut to Floyd Mayweather - a fight in which he made somewhere in the region of £100m.

He has taken time to relax and enjoy himself in the three months since but many are growing increasingly concerned by his behaviour. The Irishman caused a melee at a Bellator event, was summoned to court for speeding and recently become involved in an alleged brawl at a pub in Dublin.

And McGregor took to Instagram on Tuesday to share a photo of himself reading a newspaper upside down with the caption 'don't read the paper, MAKE THE PAPER.'?

His words were in reference to the fact that the Irish outlet's front page was led on a feature with the headline 'can Conor live happily ever after?'?

The snap is a recreation of one he posted last year where many thought he had made an embarrassing error in having the paper the wrong way round.

Where the 29-year-old is headed to is unknown at this point, McGregor simply saying he was 'off to the offshore', but fans will be hoping that it has something to do with a return to fighting.?

The Dubliner has been inactive in the octagon since winning the lightweight championship by beating Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 in November 2016 and UFC president Dana White conceded he 'may never return' last week.??

'The guy's got $100 million,' White said. 'I've got guys that made less than that and were lawyers and went to school their whole life and quit working.'

'Try to get up and get punched in the face every day when you've got $100 million in the bank. Money changes everything with a lot of people.'

However, the UFC chief did reveal the promotion is in talks with their star man. 'We're working on a new deal right now,' he continued. 'We've got to work out this new deal.'

Should a deal get done then McGregor's return will likely come against interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson.?
