Brown remarked that "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?"
The UFC released a statement on the matter:
"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."
The Brown podcast has since been removed from the internet. The fighter is currently rehabbing from a back injury that knocked him out of a planned December fight with Carlos Condit.
Brown (18-11) has won six straight inside the Octagon, including five finishes, to position himself as a potential title-contender.
- Daniel Cormier has made it known he wants nothing more than a crack at the UFC light heavyweight title, something he will inch closer to with a win over Rashad Evans next month.
Cormier, a former Olympic wrestler, will meet Evans in the co-main event of UFC 170 on February 22. It marks his debut at 205 pounds after going 13-0 at heavyweight.
In Evans, a former champion, "DC" sees a more difficult fight than a potential one vs. the man currently holding UFC gold - Jon Jones.
"I think Rashad is actually a little more difficult to take down for me than it would be for a guy with longer limbs," said Cormier, during a recent media event (thanks to MMAjunkie.com for the quotes). "I think it works to my advantage. Rashad, he's a more dynamic type of fighter in terms of one-punch knockout power. He has more than Jones does.
"Jon is great, but he works at his pace, he fights at his pace. I don't know know if he's ever put anybody out on their feet. He gets on top and kind of pounds guys out. That's one tool that actually goes out the window against me because he can't score a takedown."
Cormier might be right Jones in terms of finishing power on his feet, but "Bones" has choked out the likes of Lyoto Machida while standing.
Evans (19-3-1) owns 14 career UFC victories, including two straight since back-to-back defeats vs. Jones and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.
- The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 3, the one which will air on "UFC Fight Pass" and feature Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva as coaches, will be comprised of middleweights and heavyweights, according to MMAFighting.com.
Rony Jason, Cezar Ferreira and Leonardo Santos have all captured TUF: Brazil titles over the past year-plus.
The season is scheduled to begin in March and conclude in May, with Sonnen and Silva finally squaring off after years of verbal battles sometime in 2014.
