The segment she took issue with stated that she is a model by day and brawler by night. The clip also mentions that "she brings something to the table that no other female fighters do - sex appeal."
Herrig, 28, wants the MMA community to know it was not a direct quote from her.
"One thing I want to state after watching the The Jeff Probst Show is that I NEVER said 'I bring something to the table that other female fighters don't... etc,'" Herrig said. "PLENTY of ladies in this sport are sexy and hot! They actually got couple things wrong such as calling me a "Model", which I'm not, but it was still good to be on the show and bring light to WMMA. xoxo ;)."
Herrig hit the proverbial nail on the head, as dozens of other female MMA stars use their sex appeal to gain exposure in the sport. Miesha Tate, Michelle Gutierrez, Ronda Rousey, Gina Carano and Rachel Wray are just some of the many female MMA stars who have posed in sexy photo shoots for men's magazines.
"They got a few things wrong on the show such as I never called myself a model either... so I just want to be clear on that cuz plenty of women bring sex appeal to this sport," Herrig said. "The biggest thing I dislike about the piece is that they quote me as saying 'I bring something to the table that no other female does and that's sex appeal.' This is not a direct quote from me and I never said that."
Herrig, a veteran of Bellator and XFC, seemed to cool off just a few hours later.
"[Jeff Probst] is a great guy he just didnt have all the right info guys... it happens... I still had a lot of fun:)," she posted.
