Brazilian UFC fighter gets punished after homophobic comment

A confusion between Fabricio Werdum and UFC fighters Tony Ferguson is giving the talk. All because the Brazilian used the word “maricón”, considered a homophobic term, during the discussion.

The proportion of the event has prompted the UFC to send a statement to the MMA Fighting website stating that the fighter will provide community service with the LGBT community as a way to lessen the negative impact of his words.

According to the statement, the fighter will provide services to the rainbow community “because of the violation of this policy, Fabricio agreed to develop community work with the LGBT community in Las Vegas, taking direct measures to provide changes and have a direct impact on the community “He says.

Werdum, however, said he had no intention of offending the LGBT community during the discussion. “I have nothing against homosexuals, nothing against gay men. I was very nervous and used all the words that came to my head there at that time, “says the fighter. “At no point has my intention been to offend the LGBT community, because in my view, everyone is equal regardless of their sexual orientation. I apologize again if I offended anyone, it was not my intention.”
