“Not a good looking”: The pros react to Andrea Lee corner’s comments about the ‘dirty Brazilians’ comment


Andrea Lee lost on Saturday night — and her corner may have lost some respect in the MMA community.

In the featured preliminary bout of UFC Vegas 54, Lee went three rounds with Viviane Araujo in an exciting flyweight contest that ended with Araujo winning a unanimous decision. In between rounds, however, Lee’s coach Tony Kelley was caught on camera accusing Araujo of cheating and stating, “That’s what they’re gonna do. They’re dirty f******* Brazilians. They will f***ing cheat just like that .”

See a clip of Kelley’s comments below:

“That’s what they’re gonna do. They’re dirty f******* Brazilians. They’re gonna f****** cheat like that. Guess what? Guess what?

It’s unclear what potential infraction Kelley was accusing Araujo of.

Unsurprisingly, UFC bantamweight Kelley was criticized for making offensive comments on social media. Bellator featherweight champion Cris Cyborg and top UFC welterweight Gilbert Burns were among them, as was Kelley’s upcoming June 18 opponent Adrian Yanez.
