Dana White slams Conor McGregor for his actions

Conor McGregor recently put out a tweet towards Diego Sanchez, wishing him well for his upcoming fight. ‘The Notorious’ added that he wanted to fight Sanchez in February in Dublin. Besides this, the Irish fighter even shed light on his status for the UFC 249 main event. In the post-fight interview following UFC 253, Dana White was asked what he thought of Conor’s actions.

The UFC President replied, “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. Which by the way you know, because we were just talking about Diego Sanchez. And Diego Sanchez is in there in a private conversation I was having with Conor. When you’re the number two and three ranked guy in the world, and you’re telling me you wanna fight unranked, 39-year-old, Diego Sanchez. In the main event in Los Angeles. Yeah.”

"It's one of the dirtiest things you can do." 😡

Dana has never been this irate by the Irishman in their professional relationship in the UFC. With reports recently emerging, followed by a tweet from Conor himself about a fight with Manny Pacquiao. The MMA superstar seems set to return to the squared circle against one of the best boxers ever. The event is targeted for the winter of 2020 as shared in a post by ‘The Notorious’ himself. If that fight is to materialize, McGregor will not be fighting in the UFC anytime soon. 

Do you think Conor crossed the lines with his recent tweets? If so, is the relationship between the two biggest personalities in MMA salvageable?
