Conor McGregor Apologizes To Ronda Rousey & Miesha Tate For Sexual Tweet

Rising UFC featherweight star, Conor McGregor, has made headlines once again for his use of social media. The most recent attention grabbing tweet: an assessment of the top two women in the UFC’s bantamweight division, Miesha Tate and Ronda Rousey.

During a Q&A session with fans over Twitter, McGregor responded to the question of his preference of the two women by quoting rap artist Dr. Dre:

“One riidin d—k, one lickin ma toessssss (sic).”

McGregor has since deleted the tweet and recently issued this 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.”
The tone of the apology seems to suggest that McGregor’s management and/or the UFC encouraged the fighter’s words.

Tate responded to McGregor, accepting his apology and acknowledging that she knows it was all in good fun.
“[I]ts all good (sic), appreciate the apology but I knew you were just joking!” she wrote.
