Conor McGregor Backtracks On Tweet Involving Ronda Rousey, Miesha Tate

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!”
