Dana White appears to have backed down from Conor McGregor in his latest comments

Vague, very vague.

Dana White was vocal following Conor McGregor's storming of the UFC media day back in April and his subsequent behaviour which saw him throw items at a bus containing UFC fighters, injuring two of them.

The damage saw the two fighters suffer lacerations and forced them out of their fights that weekend and left some others shaken by the incident.

In the aftermath, White went in hard on McGregor stating his actions were "the most disgusting thing that's happened in the history of the company."

He later said that following the outcome of the court case, which was resolved on Thursday, McGregor would likely face disciplinary action from the UFC itself, but now that doesn't appear to be the case, judging by his latest comments on the matter.

"Conor has faced a lot of repercussions," White said after UFC on FOX 30 weigh-ins. "Conor has lost a lot of money and a lot of time. Conor and I are good. We’re good."

The result of the court case appears to have paved the way for a McGregor fight later in the year, something the UFC are very keen on considering the pay-per-view powerhouse the Dubliner has become for the organisation.

It's thought the UFC are trying to organise a fight between McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 on 6 October in Las Vegas.

"The fight everybody wants to see is Conor and Khabib," White said. "That’s the fight."
