UFC interim lightweight champion Justin Gaethje has labelled Conor McGregor a 'b****' after a fight between the two failed to materialise.
The 31-year-old American was left furious with comments made by the Notorious towards UFC president Dana White on social media.
McGregor, 32, hit out at White after the 51-year-old claimed the Irishman had broken 'man-code' after the two-weight world champion shared private conversations between the two.
White called it "one of the dirtiest things you can do".
To which McGregor said: "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 (Sanchez). Diego was a filler to get more fights in.
"Also you have been involved in Manny (Pacquiao) talks the legal letters are there. Stop lying."
An infuriated Gaethje – who called out his rival last week – then replied to his tweet, as he said: "Conor McGregor not a good look lying on the boss.
"Anything to not look like a b****. You had me in January I was calling on you left and right and not a peep.
"My manager asked if I wanted you after Tony (Ferguson) but you know, f*** you.
"You never wanted it, you took the easy road kid."
Gaethje is set to return to the octagon next month at UFC 254 when he faces lightweight champ Khabib Nurmagomedov.
McGregor meanwhile is in line to return to the boxing ring, where he could pit his wits against eight-weight world champion Manny Pacquiao in January.
