Dana White has revealed he has not spoken to Conor McGregor since his arrest in New York last month, as he admitted he did not know if and when the Irishman would return to UFC action.

White was furious with McGregor when he led a gang of his friends in an attack on a coach at a press event ahead of UFC 223, with local police charging the former UFC champion with assault after the incident and later releasing him on $50,000 bail.

McGregor is due back in a New York court on June 14th and White has suggested the outcome of his legal case will dictate whether he has a short-term future in UFC.

"Conor and I are going to meet in Vegas," confirmed White, as reports of a potential meeting between the duo in Liverpool last weekend failed to materialise.

"He and I haven’t seen each other since New York. We haven’t seen each other, we haven’t talked. Nothing. We need to get together soon."

A potential fight against Khabib Nurmagomedov has been mentioned for McGregor, but he has made little attempt to return to UFC action since his lucrative boxing match against Floyd Mayweather last year.

"I’m pretty confident that is the fight that Conor wants and I’m pretty confident that’s is the fight Khabib wants," added White of a potential showdown with Nurmagomedov.

"I can see that happening.

"It all depends on what goes on with him in New York (court case) in June. We can’t determine anything about what’s next for him until June is cleared up."
