UFC fighter Casey Kenney has been forced to apologize after being criticized for a “degrading” remark made about Australian fighter Megan Anderson.
Speaking on a podcast, Kenney was ripped apart by Anderson for his response to a question from the hosts about whether he would be having sex with her.
“Probably not, man,” Kenney said on The Timbo Sugar Show Podcast.
“She’s not too… well, I mean, if it comes down to that, and it was 5 in the morning, 4 in the morning, she is 5 in the morning, 4 in the morning. Just the two of us hanging out, like, ‘F – k it, let’s do it.’ “
The Australian didn’t welcome Kenney’s response, expressing her displeasure on her personal Twitter account, also lamenting the pair would share a card at UFC 259 where Anderson is set to face Amanda Nunes in the co-event. main. .
“I guess MMA is a line of work where you can say publicly if you would have sex with a coworker in a totally degrading way and not suffer any consequences.” Anderson tweeted.
“Disgusting behavior and it’s a shame he’s fighting on my map in March.”
“I’m sorry that upset you. I’ll be more careful with my words,” Kenney replied.
“I was just answering a question and thought it was a joke. I see I was wrong and I’m sorry. Good luck with training camp and your fight.”
However, the apologies didn’t come until the 29-year-old came under heavy criticism.
