Tate frustrated by McGregor’s promo stance

4 May, 2016

Tate says she is frustrated that she had to take over promotional responsibilities that McGregor was supposed to do..

Let me get this straight — I am a fan of Conor McGregor. I think he has an awesome fighting style and he markets himself so uniquely, you can’t discredit that. He does a phenomenal job, everyone loves to watch him fight and that’s myself included. But I think that Dana is 100-percent right in saying if you’re not going to show up to do your part of the job, then there’s going to be consequences. We had to pick up some pieces the day that we had to film the commercial, which Dana White told me they spent like $10 million marketing this card. The day that the commercial was supposed to be filmed, it was supposed to be that myself, Amanda (Nunes), Frankie Edgar and Jose Aldo had to film two segments for this commercial and the main event had to film two segments plus one more segment, which is the highlight of the commercial. Well because the main event didn’t show up, they literally begged me to come back and it’s like, ‘Can you please come back later today and film this third segment? I filmed the third one but it caused me to miss my practice and I had to switch everything around. If you were in my shoes and you had to miss your practice to pick up something that Conor didn’t give any notice on and he wasn’t going to be there and they’re asking you to fill in the blank when it was his job and his responsibility and his contract to do it, I mean yeah am I allowed to be a little bit frustrated? I think so.
