Conor McGregor hasn't been shy about his disdain for the current roster of WWE stars, but he seems to have come around on Vince McMahon.

When asked about his "billionaire strut," which was originated by McMahon, at his open workout Friday, McGregor tipped his hat to the WWE boss:

That's a far cry from what McGregor had to say in January about stealing the move.

"I don't give a (expletive) about Vince McMahon. I stole that walk and that walk is now mine," he said, according to FOX Sports. "Not Vince or any of those (expletive) over in the WWE will do anything about it.

"That's my walk. I created that walk. I made that walk."
