Sara McMann tells Matt Brown to fight in a Speedo

According to a Jan. 9 report from Bloody Elbow, undefeated UFC bantamweight contender Sara McMann responded to Matt Brown's insensitive comments about women's MMA by advising him to wear a Speedo for his next fight.

McMann, 33, didn't find anything funny about Brown's recent joke that he would like to see female MMA fighters compete "topless" inside the cage, and she went off on him during the UFC 170 media scrum in Las Vegas, Nev.

"I want to make it absolutely clear ... I do not care if somebody wants to be a fan or not," exclaimed McMann. "Don't pay $60 then. Nobody's taking their top off.

"I don't even know him. Why would I give a crap what he thinks about my fight? You know what, Matt Brown fight in a Speedo."

Brown, 32, managed to offend the entire WMMA community with a recent rant that also included comments about female fighters lacking the power to finish fights via strikes.

“I always said, ‘I don’t know why they put women in the UFC – now I know why,” Brown said. “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.”

Brown's comments also drew criticism from World Series of Fighting President Ray Sefo, among others.

“If it’s true, I think it’s disgusting,” Sefo said of Brown's remarks about WMMA.

“I think every person should respect female fighters, because they do bring the fire. They’re all talented. It really gets to me when people start saying stupid s–t like that.”
