UFC women’s bantamweight champion Miesha Tate has been competing in MMA professionally for nearly a decade. In addition, ‘Cupcake’ was one of the first women in the UFC.

Ahead of her UFC 200 fight against Amanda Nunes, Tate appeared on SiriusXM Fight Club, Tate tried to impart some wisdom on UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor, who was pulled from UFC 200 after refusing to fulfill his media obligations for the event.

MMAFighting has the transcription:

“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? 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. 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.”

McGregor and the UFC brass seem to be on the same page now after a dinner-meeting that resulted in both parties leaving with smiles. So far there has been no word yet on who McGregor will fight next, although if reports are believed to be true, he will have a boxing match against Floyd Mayweather later this year.
