Conor McGregor and Dana White have been in a little beef together over Conor’s “season”. Last time Conor fought in the cage was back at UFC 246 against Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone. Conor won by TKO 49 seconds into round 1. An interview Conor McGregor had with Ariel Helwani said that this was his year his season.
So fast forward to the 25th of September 2020, Conor McGregor took to Twitter and released some of Dana’s conversation he had on Instagram. It shows Conor hunting down Diego Sanchez for a fight earlier this year. And Dana saying “we should lose our promoting licence if we book that fight” come down a couple of messages it shows Conor hunting down Justin Gaethje for a fight in May. Then Dana said the earliest they can do is International Fight Week (July 11th) Conor was not happy with that date as he said it’s too far away.
Dana in a post-fight interview was not too pleased with Conor McGregor as he broke the Man Code in releasing private messages between the pair. In retaliation to Dana’s outburst, Conor then took to Twitter the 29th of September 2020 to ask if Dustin Poirier wanted a Charity exhibition bout in Ireland December 12th 2020, to which Dustin was very quick to accept and the pair continued their discussions back and forward to each other until Conor wanted to take things offline.
Dana then caught wind of this and was quick to get to work with his matchmakers and get bout agreements to both Conor and Dustin. Dustin again was the first to put up on his Instagram “I accept” fans got excited and blew up both fighters asking if it were in fact true they received these bout agreements. Conor, according to Dana was to contact the UFC on the 2nd of October at 5 pm ET to give his answer. It isn’t clear if Conor has contacted the UFC yet.
