“Like I was saying, coming back to that, the day that the commercial was supposed to be filmed it was supposed to be 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 which is the main event.”
“Well because the main event didn’t show up we had to, they literally begged me when I showed up that morning, they begged me to come back – by ‘they’ I mean the producers of the commercial – begged me to come back and said ‘can you please come back later today and film this third segment?”
“Well that third segment happened to be over my practice time, my pro practice at my gym which I didn’t want to miss but obviously they were hurting so bad and they really were like ‘please’ like basically on their knees, ‘we need this segment of the commercial and we don’t have the main event now so we have to film it with you guys and see how it all comes together.’
“So anyways, I agreed and came back and filmed the third one but that caused me to miss my practice and I had to switch everything around and it wouldn’t have been as big of a deal if I had known before but it was the day of and it threw a wrench in the whole mix and was just kind of frustrating to be honest.” Tate was also quick to point out that she was not the only one who felt this way, just the most vocal. “And it wasn’t just me, it was all of us. But I’m outspoken. I have a freakin’ mouth that I can’t control sometimes and I just say how I really feel. I’m pretty transparent. But I’m not one-sided either.
That doesn’t mean I have any hard feelings towards Conor.
That doesn’t mean that I hate the guy or that I’m not a fan of his, absolutely not, but I’m going to say how I feel.” “Sometimes people are like ‘oh you’re complaining,’ well 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 that he wasn’t going to be there and then 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. I think that’s fair. It is what it is. It’s done now, it’s over with, I don’t care, it doesn’t bother me anymore but at that moment in time I’m going to tell people the truth. Freakin’ shoot me I guess for voicing my opinion.”
That the was UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion: Miesha Tate…
