PIC: Conor McGregor Shreds Dana White in Screenshot Beef

Conor McGregor and Dana White have made a lot of money together. However, all is not well in their relationship at the moment. The UFC President accused his most lucrative athlete of doing one of the ‘dirtiest things you can do’ after the Irishman shared screenshots of a message exchange.

McGregor wanted to fight Diego Sanchez as a filler in Dublin to meet some of the terms of his UFC contract. However, the UFC rightfully shot this down because Sanchez is way past his prime and his coach Joshua Fabia is a snake-oil salesman.

But interestingly, ‘The Notorious’ claims that he accepted a fight with Justin Gaethje. But the UFC didn’t want to waste McGregor numbers on a pandemic card. So now the former two-weight champion has responded to the President in an increasingly volatile war-of-words.

Dirtiest

White dealt with McGregor’s actions in the UFC 253 post-fight press conference. He claimed that McGregor’s actions in leaking the screenshots amounted to a betrayal. It’s clear that their relationship is nothing more than professional now. He said:

“I had people blowing me up left and right. I mean everybody here knows, I mean even the ladies, this is some man-code stuff but it’s just something you don’t do. It’s just something that you don’t do. It is one of the dirtiest things you can do.

Which, by the way, because we were just talking about Diego Sanchez. And Diego Sanchez was in there in this private conversation that I was having with Conor McGregor. When you are the number 2 or 3 ranked guy in the world, and you’re telling me that you want to fight unranked 39-year-old Diego Sanchez in the main event of Los Angeles. Well…”

Reponse

When you’re worth millions of dollars, you don’t need to worry as much about offending your boss. McGregor went all-out in his response. He accused White of lying – something the UFC president has a history of. Dustin Poirier is another fighter currently beefing with the UFC over alleged lies. The Notorious tweeted:

Code was broke when you lied about me turning down fights mate. I said Justin in May and you went and said I did not want to fight. It’s not about Diego. Diego was a filler to get more fights in. Also you have been involved in Manny talks the legal letters are there. Stop lying.
