Not all is lost between Conor McGregor and the UFC, who claims relations with the organisation are in "a good place".
Though McGregor is officially scratched from UFC 200, he believes he has moved towards mending fences with the higher-ups after a dinner with UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta and president Dana White in Los Angeles.
The UFC featherweight champion could be in line to fight former five-division boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr, who suggested a bout between the pair could "absolutely" happen.
However, McGregor believes has found a middle ground with the UFC, having been at odds since late April when he announced his since-retracted retirement.
"I met with Dana and Mr. Fertitta, good conversation like it always is," McGregor told ESPN.
"We have a good relationship. It is what it is. It happens. This is the fight game. Sometimes emotions get into it but it's important to recognise that emotions have no place in business.
"So that's essentially what it was last night. We just set it aside. There's no place for emotions in this. We are doing beautiful things so let's continue. Let's fix it and continue.
"I'd say we're nice and in the middle. In a good place."
