Speaking on Eddie Hearn's Talk the Talk podcast per MMA Fighting, the 50-year-old explained: "Jon Jones and I do not agree on something right now. We're having a disagreement, but Jon Jones is a partner in this business. Conor McGregor is a partner in this business.

"The list goes on and on. When you get to that level, when you become a star or a world champion like these guys are, they're a partner.

"We don't agree right now on things, and we're going to fight and we say things, the thing that's going on in public, and eventually you get to a point where you get tired of fighting and you figure it out. It's like any other relationship."

He then goes on to explain the term 'partner' and how it helps all involve help make money.

"The way that it works in the UFC, these guys that become these big stars, become partners," White explained. "They become partners in the pay-per-view and selling the pay-per-view. That's how we all make money.

"But every one of those guys that you mentioned from the Chuck Liddells to the Anderson Silvas to the Georges St-Pierres to the Jon Jones', Ronda Rousey, they all brought something different to the table."

White had previously responded to 'Bones' claims he would vacate his light heavyweight title by saying his career decisions were 'up to him'.

Speaking to The Canadian Press, he said: "Jon Jones is one of the greatest to ever do it.

"The decision he wants to make regarding his career is up to him. The reality is that he's made enough money from fighting that he's now in the position to retire and never work again in his life."
