On his relationship with the UFC 257 headliner, he told ESPN via MMA Fighting: "We were in a really bad place then.

"I was really upset. It wasn't because he put out private messages.

"But we were talking about another fighter and I like Diego Sanchez a lot and I have a lot of respect for Diego Sanchez.

"I care about Diego Sanchez. So, I was very upset about that."

White added: "I talked to Diego face-to-face about it. Being the great human being that he is, [it's] all good and then I was really, really upset with Conor. Conor, I fixed that, we talked and we got through it and we're in a good place now.

"Me and everybody are always in a good place as far as business goes.

"Tito Ortiz fought here for years. We hated each other. He fought here for years. Business is always good but that doesn't mean that we're good.
