“I guess MMA is a line of work where you can publicly talk about whether you'd have sex with a coworker in an utterly degrading way and face zero consequences. Disgusting behavior and it's unfortunate that he'll be fighting on my card in March.” said Anderson in the tweet.
Tim Welch is heard posing the following question to Casey Kenney.
“Would you sma*h Megan Anderson or no, Casey?”
Casey Kenney responded to this question with the following statement.
“Probably not, man. She’s not too…Well, I mean if it came down to it and it was like five am or four; she’s a five am’er, four am’er. Just us two hanging out.”
Welch added, “She’s piggybacking you.”
And Kenney continued, “Yeah. I’ll be like, ‘F**k it. Let’s do it’.”
