Curtis Blaydes denies female MMA stars receive preferential treatment based on “sexy” looks, not combat skills


When you think of mixed martial arts oxen (MMA), you don’t normally imagine a male and female fighter tackling it under pressure or via social media. Sure, we recently had Henry Cejudo and Valentina Shevchenko exchanging beards, but that was all for smiles and laughs. And we also had Ronda Rousey’s beef with Bryan Caraway a few years ago, although that was a direct result of Rowdy’s disdain for Miesha Tate.

Recently, however, Curtis Blaydes, one of the best competitors in UFC Heavyweight, has decided to criticize a few female MMA stars who he says only get promotions based on their bikini looks rather than their ability to actual combat. In addition, “Razor” says that a fighter who earns her income this way is similar to the way a stripper makes her living.
