It appears as if someone in the UFC’s front office didn’t appreciate Conor McGregor’s Dr. Dre song reference.
McGregor, who held a Q&A session on Twitter recently, has apologized for his remarks concerning female fighters Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate.
The Irish fighter was asked about Rousey or Tate, and responded with a line from Dre’s song, “Let’s Get High.” The remark, though, was later taken down by McGregor, who is rehabbing from knee surgery.
He issued the following statement as an apology:
“I would like to personally apologize to both Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate. This morning I quoted a song on Twitter in an attempt to make a joke, which I now I see was totally unacceptable and offensive. I have infinite respect for Miesha and Ronda as individuals and as athletes. I have always been a big fan of women’s MMA and the incredible talented athletes that compete in the sport. I regret making this offensive comment and I sincerely apologize to anyone whom I offended, but especially Ronda and Miesha.”
For what it’s worth, Tate replied to the apology, saying, “its all good, appreciate the apology but I knew you were just joking!”
