RIZIN Japan Commentator Involved In Scandal Following Extremely Sexist Commentary On Live T.V.

A Rizin Grand Prix took place Sunday night and has since drawn some controversy. It was not the fighters, the promoters or an unruly fan. Rather, color-commentator Chris Cordeiro has come under fire after a series of sexist comments stated during the live broadcast of the event.

As seen in the video above, Cordeiro mispronounces the names of fighters. He stumbles over introducing the fight location. But, the commentator is taking criticism over more brash remarks. Commenting on female fighter Rena Kubota, Cordeiro said “Her cuteness is probably what elevated her to main event status.”

Speaking on another female competitor, Cordeiro added “For 43 years old, Miyu Yamamoto doesn’t look bad for a female. Females don’t tend to age well.”

MMA Rising’s Robert Sargent took to Twitter to share his distaste for the incident as well. Check out his comments on the commentator’s brash remarks in the posts below.
