Conor McGregor Disputes Dana White’s Understanding Of ‘I Accept’ Post

Tinatanggap ko- Mc Gregor posts mysterious Filipino tweet

He would later begin calling McGregor out on social media.

Moments later, McGregor responded to the tweet writing: "I accept".

This comes just a day after he tweeted the english version of the phrase, which many believed to be directed at surging UFC welterweight Khazmat Chimaev.

However, in a recent conversation with ESPN's Ariel Helwani, McGregor clarified that his tweet was not meant for the budding UFC star in Khamzat Chimaev.

When pressed on whether he would actually be interested in making a fight between McGregor and Chimaev, White quickly brushed off the notion.

"Spoke to Conor McGregor briefly today". He declined to comment further.

"Khamzat posted, 'I want Nate Diaz, Masvidal then McGregor.' And McGregor said, 'I accept.' That's what that was".

This apparently meant McGregor want to take on Pacquiao in a boxing match at 170 pounds.

However, it wouldn't be surprising to see him return to action next year, especially once the UFC 254 fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Justin Gaethje is concluded, and if fans will be able to attend events at the time. And even if he wasn't, White said there are many more relevant fights for him.

The Irish fighter is apparently trying to do the same with Pacquiao, who signed a deal with Paradigm Sports which manages McGregor.

What do you think of a potential McGregor-Pacquiao fight? McGregor had previously hinted at a fight with the Filipino Senator in a interview with ESPN Ringside.

McGregor, last month, had said that he is retiring from fighting.

Conor McGregor announced earlier this year that he was going to stop fighting in the ring and live a life of peace, however, a new report from Hot New Hip Hop says he has already accepted the offer to fight a rising star in the UFC.
