News site mistakenly refers to Amanda Nunes as ‘transgendered’ and apologises after

MMA and the sport’s top promotion the UFC have evolved over the years. While they were once considered to simply be violent cage fighting, MMA is now a reputable sport. The sport has evolved so much that not only women but also in recent years it has started to accept to a certain extent transgender fighters. However, this has also given rise to plenty of controversies regarding transgender fighters competing in women’s divisions and how it is unfair to biological female fighters. Russian media website RT recently did an op-ed piece on the same issue. However, they sound themselves in plenty of hot water as they accidentally used the UFC women’s bantamweight and featherweight champion Amanda Nunes’ picture as a transgender fighter.

To their credit though, as soon as RT discovered this debacle on their part, they were quick to take down this picture in question. They were also rather quick to issue an apologise. Here’s what they had to say:

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.

Below is their tweet:
