Andrea Lee ’s head cornerman at UFC on ESPN 36 on Saturday, Tony Kelley , came under fire for comments he made during her women’s flyweight bout with Viviane Araujo . Following the first round of the matchup at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, in which Lee (13-6 MMA, 5-4 UFC) started strong with a huge punch and blistering head kick, she went back to her corner and sat on the stool. Kelley, a UFC bantamweight who is scheduled to fight Adrian Yanez on June 18, made a controversial statement to his athlete. “That’s what they’re going to do – they’re dirty f*cking Brazilians,” Kelley told Lee. “They’re going to f*cking cheat like that.” Araujo (11-3 MMA, 5-2 UFC) rallied back to secure a unanimous decision win , including a lopsided 10-8 round. She could not react after the win backstage because she transported to a local hospital and did not speak with the media after the fight.
