UFC featherweight Conor McGregor found himself in a bit of hot water last week when he wrote a tweet referencing a hypothetical threesome between himself, Ronda Rousey, and Miesha Tate.
When asked by a fan which of the two women he would rather have sex with, McGregor tweeted, “One riidin d–k, one lickin ma toessssss.”
It didn’t take very long for him to delete the tweet and apologize for it, but UFC president Dana White is still not very happy.
At a recent media scrum, White told McGregor to have a little “f–king common sense.”
“When I found out about that, I reached out to him, and he had already written an apology,” White said. “He’s a young kid that made a real dumb tweet. He apologized. I had talked to Miesha and Ronda, both of them were like, ‘Yeah, whatever. Not a big deal.’ He likes both of them, respects them.
“These guys try to be f–king funny on Twitter. The crazy part is, he’s been trying to hit Ronda up, he wants to go train with Ronda. And then you’re gonna send a tweet like that with somebody you want to hang out with and train with, it just makes no sense. I don’t expect people to be f–king rocket scientists here. We’re not gonna go out and find a cure for cancer or anything, all I ask for is a little common sense. Just a little tiny bit of f–king common sense.”
This wouldn’t have been the first time that a fighter had been in trouble over a tweet (Miguel Torres was famously cut from the organization after joking about rape), but luckily, McGregor was quick to apologize. It seems pretty likely that he’s learned his lesson about what not to put on the internet.
