Miesha Tate kommer härnäst att försvara bantamviktsbältet mot Amanda Nunes under UFC 200, där det tidigare var tänkt att Conor McGregor skulle gå retur mot Nate Diaz. Tate berättar nu att McGregors frånvaro under inspelningarna för reklamfilmerna innebar mer jobb och omplaneringar för andra fighters som var på plats, eftersom de blev tvungna att spela in mer.
Det här berättade Tate via ”ESPN”:
”I understand that he has an obsession with beating Nate right now and he wants to stay focused and stay the course at all costs. I get it. But at the end of the day, it says in your contract when you sign that you have to do reasonable promotion. This is reasonable promotion. I have never had the UFC ask me to do unreasonable promotion. And they’re very accommodating. Whether it’s a car service to take you to where you need to train while you’re travelling. Whatever they can do to make your life easier, bringing breakfast to you, bringing lunch to you, whatever you need they’re really accommodating. They try to make this as easy [as possible]. We’re three months out from the fight you know. It’s not unreasonable to ask to come in here for a day and give some promotion. This does huge things for the fight. They filmed the commercial the other day. and we actually ended up having to pick up the pieces of Conor not being there. We had to film more. I had to actually come back and push my training schedule to the side and scoot my stuff around to be able to accommodate the fact that Conor wasn’t there and fill up those voids.”
