UFC 243 in Melbourne, Australia will feature a unification bout of elite strikers as middleweight champion Robert ‘The Reaper’ Whittaker will return back in action to take on interim champ Israel ‘The Last Stylebender’ Adesanya.

The co-main event will also feature one of their adopted sons as upcoming prospect Dan ‘The Hangman’ Hooker will take on veteran and perrenial contender Al Iaquinta. That being said, an Australian politician, Melbourne’s Mayor Sally Capp demanded the above mentioned talent to do their thing and not other factors, specifically the ring girls!

“It’s 2019, do we really still need scantily-clad women to wander around the middle of a fighting ring between rounds?” Capp queried with respect to UFC 243 and the Octagon girls (via MMA Mania). “Grid girls are no longer part of Formula One, walk-on girls are no longer part of professional darts — surely it’s time to move on.”

Speaking with The Daily Telegraph, UFC President Dana White addressed the issue. White didn’t agree with the idea and gave octagon girls their dues for being an integral part of the organization.

“Our Octagon girls, they’re as much a part of the UFC brand as anyone, they’re ambassadors for our sport,” White told The Daily Telegraph (h/t MMA Mania). “So for someone who has absolutely no education whatsoever about who these girls are – about what they do. What they mean to the UFC – to start going off, it’s ridiculous.”
