Miesha Tate comments on recent Conor McGregor arrest

Earlier this week, Conor McGregor was arrested in Miami after allegedly smashing a fan’s phone. It’s been widely speculated that the Irish MMA star lost his cool when the fan got a little too pushy.

Former UFC bantamweight champion Miesha Tate, who has spent plenty of time in the public eye herself, understands why McGregor got frustrated but reminds that the fan was not breaking any laws.

“It’s not breaking the law, and it’s not illegal,” Tate said Wednesday on MMA Tonight, discussing the way some fans tend to overstep (transcript via MMA Junkie). “It’s annoying, but it’s not crossing the line.”

While Miesha Tate recognizes that life in the public eye can often be frustrating, she feels that a star of McGregor’s status should probably learn to cope with it better.

“He is a megastar. He has made himself into one of the most recognizable faces … and he’s making millions and millions and millions of dollars. He’s created that,” Tate said. “So, what I think is that this fan was out of line. He was disrespectful and probably should’ve had a little more common sense to respect the space of Conor. With that being said, I guarantee you that guy’s bought every single one of Conor McGregor’s pay-per-views.”

“So figure it out, Conor,” she added. “Do you appreciate your fans, all of them, the ones that are making you rich, or not? Blow the guy off. That’s kind of what you have to do. It’s the price of fame.

“It’s not helping anything, and it’s the unfortunate thing that I think megastars and super famous people have to learn to put up with. And Conor’s no exception,” Tate concluded. “You cannot take a person’s phone and smash it.”
