“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.” Dana White emphasized. “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..”
Apparently Dana White won’t have to worry about Conor McGregor bothering him about fighting Diego Sanchez again anytime soon. The Irishman recently announced that he was headed back to the squared circle for a boxing match with Manny Pacquiao.
Conor has previously competed in professional boxing on one occasion, suffering a tenth-round TKO loss to Foyd Mayweather Jr. in their blockbuster match-up in 2017.
