UFC Champion tells Conor McGregor not to get too big-headed

It's happening again. Conor McGregor is hitting headlines when he doesn't need to. And we all know how this goes for him.

Before the Nate Diaz fight, McGregor was proclaiming himself to the "King of the UFC", saying that he could do anything he wanted to and that there was nothing that Dana White and co. could do to stop him. Then he ended up tapping in the middle of the octagon to Diaz.

With rumours about a potential megafight with Floyd Mayweather circulating, McGregor finds himself being interviewed a lot again. As he looks to get his revenge on Diaz, could we be treading down that same path? According to Miesha Tate, it is very possible.

During an appearance on SiriusXM Rush Fight Club, the UFC Women's bantamweight Champion said that McGregor might be getting too big for his boots again and needs to reign it in.

"The UFC has gone above and beyond to accommodate him and you've got to think about this too: how did Conor McGregor become Conor McGregor?" she said.

Tate, as well as many others in the MMA world, has sympathy for the Irishman but believes he should've fulfilled his media obligations - even if it was months from the fight and he had to leave his training camp.

"If there was no UFC you wouldn't know who he was. It's been a mutual effort on both their parts. The UFC has spent a tremendous amount of money promoting Conor McGregor and he's made a lot of money - for himself and for them - but it's teamwork.

Too Big Headed

"They're both working hard to create something great and it has been great but don't change now Conor. Stay the course. This is what you've been doing this is what got you here."

"Don't get big headed and now think that you're above it because I think that's the downfall."

She went on to add that the UFC will still be the same irrepressable machine with or without 'The Notorious One'. 

"They are the masters at making stars and they made Conor McGregor - with his help. So they will make another Conor McGregor if they want to, if he doesn't want to be Conor McGregor anymore."

Hopefully, he can see the light and get back to his best. The UFC is a better place with a dominant Conor McGregor in it, that is for sure.
