CONOR McGREGOR has hit back at Dana White's criticism of him sharing their private messages to the world – insisting the UFC boss "broke the code" first.

The pair have been locked in a war of words in recent days, with neither willing to give an inch.

On Saturday night, the UFC chief lashed out at McGregor, 32, for sharing a private conversation of theirs regarding Diego Sanchez on social media.

White called it "one of the dirtiest things you can do".

But Notorious has hit back, saying White first broke their trust by lying about his desire to fight in a furious rant on Twitter.

Earlier this week, McGregor showed four screenshots of his conversation with White including one message that read: "A fight late May in LA. Me and Diego in Dublin in August.

"Rematch end of the year. BOOM. Me and Diego in Dublin is a cracker."

A less-than-impressed White responded: "Bro, we should lose our promoter's license if we make that fight."

But White was even more furious with the fact McGregor shared the chat to his 8.2million followers.

Hitting out at the two-weight division world champ, White – at the UFC 253 post-fight press conference – said: “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. It is one of the dirtiest things you can do.

"Which, by the way, 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 No2 or No3 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…”

Now, McGregor has retaliated, tweeting: "Code was broke when you lied about me turning down fights mate.

"I said Justin in May and you went and said I did not want to fight.

"It’s not about Diego. Diego was a filler to get more fights in.

"Also you have been involved in Manny talks the legal letters are there. Stop lying."

McGregor has already slammed the UFC for the 'f***ed up' decision to hold him back from fights, recently.

And now he has turned his attention to a boxing match with Manny Pacquiao.

The Irishman even claimed he is debating whether or not to give the Filipino legend a "volley" or "boot to the head" after not doing so against Floyd Mayweather.

Talking about his 2017 fight with Money, he posted on Instagram: "Really I should have just sat right thru that shot and took his head off and f*** the distance.

"If it didn’t work out just give him a good boot into the neck and get DQ’d and fined and who’d give a f***.

"I’m upset I fully followed the rules for that fight to be honest. Floyd deserved a volley at the least. A shoulder even, break the face.

"Manny not so much tho I don’t think, but I will see how the build up goes and wait to hear what bitter old Freddie Roach has to say and then make a decision.

"My Whiskey's at half a b (billion) and climbing I could take a fine."
