Maybe once his career is over, top ten welterweight Matt Brown has a career in shock jock radio ahead of him. He's started his own man themed podcast called Legit ManS**t which appears to, quite aptly, be following in the hallowed footsteps of shows like Manswers and The Man Show. In his first episode he talked about a major manly gripe, women in MMA (transcribed by David St. Martin at MMA Fighting):
"The whole fight we have women in one room, men in another room," says Brown. "Rousey and Miesha come on and all the women just f*****g gather around the TV like it's the f******g Kardashians coming on."
"I always said, 'I don't know why they put women in the UFC.' Now I know why."
"I just think this, 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."
Perhaps future episodes will revolve around little people or monster trucks. I can only hope that there is a multiple part series on which manly foods are best hunted with which manly weapons. Maybe he can even add some real strength to the grass roots campaign to get rid of women referees...
Anyway, if you feel that your interest hasn't already been sated, give the whole thing a listen. And, as always, stay tuned to Bloody Elbow for more news and updates.
