McGregor took to Twitter last week and released a string of messages between himself and UFC president Dana White, in which he claimed he would fight anybody.
Cormier has taken issue with the Irishman's war of words with White and he is not convinced, especially when it comes to Sanchez.
"So you're actually exactly what... I can't. So you believe this?" Cormier said on DC & Helwani.
After @TheNotoriousMMA posted DMs in which he called for a fight with Diego Sanchez, @dc_mma and @arielhelwani debate how seriously to take McGregor's willingness to fight "anybody." pic.twitter.com/XaLX2JG4Bc- ESPN MMA (@espnmma) September 28, 2020
"You believe that Conor would fight Diego Sanchez? Look, Conor's trying to use a guy like you [Helwani] to prove that yeah, he is willing to fight anybody.
"We just talked about Diego being done and the biggest star in UFC history is saying he will fight him. So if you say him saying he will fight Diego Sanchez means he will fight anybody, but the reality is Conor ain't fighting anybody. It has to be the right fight."
'The Notorious' took issue with 'DC' and laid out exactly why he would have fought Sanchez in a scathing attack.
"I asked for May you fat fool, what you saying?" he begun.
I asked for May you fat fool, what you saying? I fought in January and tried to go again but was purposely held back to be an alternate for a July fight. Wait 7 whole fucking months and "maybe" I'd get to fight? Are you stupid? What are you saying mate?- Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) September 28, 2020
I asked for May vs ANYONE!
"I fought in January and tried to go again but was purposely held back to be an alternate for a July fight. Wait 7 whole fucking months and "maybe" I'd get to fight? Are you stupid? What are you saying mate? I asked for May vs ANYONE!"
He goes on to explain his 2020 "season plan" and why a fight with Sanchez would have made sense.
I asked for all these fights on February the 13th!! Corona didn't exist. May/Anyone! August,Dublin/Diego(Just fought that night) End Of year/rematch. 4 fights/1 year. I was held back to wait it out to be an alternate for a fight many months away. There's no other way to see this.- Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) September 29, 2020
While then thrown under the bus saying that I turned down a fight with Tony after khabib had bottled it. Lol at that one. The deciphering abilities of people in this business absolutely baffles me! It's clear as fucking day!- Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) September 29, 2020
McGregor has also proposed a charity MMA bout with former rival Dustin Poirier in December, without any help from UFC.
