Conor McGregor “absolutely” deserves a stake in the UFC, claims film legend, Sylvester Stallone.
The former featherweight and lightweight champion announced his retirement this weekend – for the third time.
When McGregor walked away from the Octagon for the second time, Stallone argued that Notorious should find a way back.
In an interview with TMZ Sports, the 73-year-old also hinted that he would help McGregor along the way.
When asked if he would “give him a little piece of yours”, Stallone responded, “of course”.
The legendary actor, nicknamed Sly, was one of 23 people who bought shares in the UFC when it was involved in a £4billion takeover back in 2016.
The other two, fellow actor Mark Wahlberg and talk show host Conan O’Brien, challenged McGregor to a fight for their shares and said he would beat them both in the ring.

During an interview with ESPN, he said: “The game just does not excite me and that’s that. You can read an in-depth explanation of why he retired on the link.
