Conor McGregor Shares His Private Instagram Messages With UFC President Dana White

Conor McGregor has shared Instagram messages with Dana White from back in February.

The Notorious fighter, who has since claimed to have retired from MMA for a third time, went on his customary Twitter spree to post screenshots of exchanges he had with the UFC president regarding his next moves.

McGregor was eager to be back in the Octagon again after making quick work of Donald 'Cowboy' Cerrone at the start of the year and asked White if there was an date for an event in Los Angeles.

When White told him there was no such event, he then proposed the idea of taking on Diego Sanchez in Dublin - which the 51-year old was not in favour of whatsoever.

They then discussed the possibility of taking on Justin Gaethje, with McGregor wanting a May bout but White explaining they could only do July at the earliest.

McGregor would then reveal the final part of the exchange to show how he was never interested in stepping in as a replacement for the cursed Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Tony Ferguson bout that was nixed for a fifth time due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

The Irishman wanted to fight on his terms, telling White, "the people want a McGregor event, let's give it to them!"


These tweets, which have come as a result of Sanchez declaring his interest in ending his career with a lucrative fight against McGregor, shed some light on why the 32-year-old has grown frustrated.

In June, McGregor claimed he was "bored" of the current situation in UFC as "nothing excites" him.

He took to Twitter to make the bombshell retirement announcement before explaining his reasons in an interview with ESPN.

"The game just does not excite me, and that's that," he said.

"All this waiting around. There's nothing happening. I'm going through opponent options, and there's nothing really there at the minute. There's nothing that's exciting me."
