UFC Quick Quote: Conor McGregor issues apology to Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate for 'offensive joke'

"Let's Get High!" Conor McGregor was apparently just rapping on when asked who he'd choose to smush one night before the world ends ... Ronda Rousey or Miesha Tate? Whoops!

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

"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."

-- Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) 145-pound sound byte, Conor McGregor, really doesn't want female Bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey and her 135-pound arch enemy, Miesha Tate, simultaneously "riidin dick, one lickin ma toessssss." On the contrary, McGregor was just making a Dr. Dre-inspired joke on when responding to a follower's question, one that he now regrets most likely because it exploded earlier today. And because it most likely landed on the tractor hood of Matt Hughes, Vice President of Athlete Development and Government Relations, who is charged with enforcing the promotion's "Code of Conduct." The Irishman certainly didn't express malice or spew hateful insults, but sharing his "end of world" mixed martial arts (MMA) menage a trois could certainly be taken as offensive. It's unclear if Rousey and Tate are even aware of the comments because both are busy coaching up aspiring hopefuls on the set of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 18. Meanwhile, McGregor will most likely go back to rehabbing his surgically-repaired kneeand grabbing handfuls of stripper ass.
