Amanda Nunes has responded to RT’s video of transgender athletes. There, they included the UFC bantamweight and featherweight champion, which got a ton of backlash.
Amanda Nunes then saw the video and took a shot at the Russian media outlet for putting her in the list.
“What the F**k? If I was born with a penis I wouldn’t be going through all this trouble to get @NinaAnsaroff a baby. @ufc @danawhite,” Nunes tweeted.
RT then was made aware of the situation and deleted the entire video. They still deemed that to not be enough and issued an apology to the UFC champ-champ.
To @Amanda_Leoa Nunes,
Our video production team mistakenly used your photo in a video which had nothing to do with you. We sincerely apologize. RT greatly respects your achievements and legacy in the world of MMA#MMAGOAT,” the tweeted with a video of her accomplishments.
Nunes, of course, is the reigning bantamweight and featherweight champion. She is coming off of a first-round knockout of Holly Holm at UFC 239 to defend her bantamweight title. At UFC 245, it is reported that she will take on Germaine de Randamie as she looks to defend the bantamweight title again.
Nunes also had a first-round knockout win in under a minute at UFC 232 over Cris Cyborg to become the featherweight champion. In her career, she has beaten the likes of Ronda Rousey, Miesha Tate, Valentina Shevchenko (twice), de Randamie, and Julia Budd.
