The UFC Releases Statement on Matt Brown's Controversial Women's MMA Coments
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 01.09.2014



The UFC has released an official statement on the recent controversial comments welterweight fighter Matt Brown made regarding women's MMA this week on his podcast, Legit Man S***."

Brown had stated: "I always said, ‘I don't know why they put women in the UFC – now I know why. If I'm [going] to pay $60 for a pay-per-view to watch women fight, they should at least be topless. How many knockouts do you see in women's fights? It's not really my thing. I respect what they do, but look, they don't have the body-type or the power – all that s–t – for knockouts. If you're not a good grappler in women's MMA, then you're behind. It's no different than the 125(-pound) division of men's MMA in that they're just really not built for knockouts."

Per the UFC:

"Matt Brown has apologized for the comments made on his podcast, and we have addressed the matter with him. His comments don't reflect the views of the UFC. There's no place for discrimination within our organization at any level. The UFC is built on principles of respect, and any statements to the contrary are not acceptable."

In addition, it appears the offending podcast has been deleted.
