Conor McGregor lashes out at UFC boss Dana White: “Stop lying”

"Code was broke when you lied about me turning down fights mate"

If you ask Conor McGregor, UFC president Dana White is lying about several things relating to the previously named Irish superstar.

Last week McGregor leaked private messages between him and White regarding, amongst other things, a potential bout with Diego Sanchez. This was done in response to White’s claims that McGregor was turning down fights. White was furious about his private messages being released.

“Listen, I’ve had people blowing me up left and right,” White said at the UFC 253 post fight press conference. “Everybody here knows, even the ladies. This is some man code stuff, you know? It’s just something you don’t do. It’s one of the dirtiest things you can do.”

McGregor then took to Twitter to respond to White’s claims.

“Code was broke when you lied about me turning down fights mate,” McGregor wrote on Twitter. “I said Justin (Gaethje) in May and you went and said I did not want to fight. It’s not about Diego (Sanchez). Diego was a filler to get more fights in.

“Also you have been involved in Manny talks, the legal letters are there. Stop lying,” Conor McGregor concluded in his message to Dana White.

So far McGregor has only competed once in 2020. Returning at UFC 246, McGregor made quick work of Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone, winning via first round TKO in less than a minute. While linked to several other bouts throughout the year, nothing else has materialised. Now it seems that a boxing bout with Manny Pacquiao is in the works for the end of the year, per McGregor.
