UFC President Dana White is getting tired with Conor McGregor's behaviour.

The Dubliner continues to push for a boxing fight against Floyd Mayweather. At an event in Manchester last weekend, McGregor revealed he intends to fight the 39-year-old before returning to the Octagon.

Speaking after the UFC event in Denver on Saturday, White was asked to comment on a Instagram post from McGregor, where the UFC lightweight champion said "F*** the UFC. F*** Floyd. F*** boxing".

“I’ve always shown Conor nothing but respect, and if he wants to go down that road with us, let me tell you, it will be an epic fall,” White told the media in Colorado.

He remains unsure of McGregor's intentions, claiming; "It’s not up to me", about the next fight the 28-year-old takes.

Unlike White, Floyd Mayweather thinks the fight will more than likely take place. "I don't know if the fight between me and Conor McGregor is going to happen, but most likely the fight will happen," he told Sky Sports at the weekend.
