Matt who? Ronda Rousey responds to Brown's breast blooper

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Conor McGregor also wanted to see Ronda Rousey topless ... but for much different reasons.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight Matt Brown found himself in hot water with the promotion's higher-ups after his off-the-cuff comments earlier this week (read them here) about women competing in mixed martial arts (MMA).

Quite simply, he's not a fan.

Brown suggested that female fighters go topless when entering the cage to justify their $60 pay-per-view (PPV) price tag, one that accompanies the upcoming UFC 170 event headlined by UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey, who asked Bloody Elbow for further clarification.

"Wait.... Who's Matt Brown?"

The gal who will face "Rowdy" for the 135-pound strap, undefeated Olympian Sara McMann, told ESPN Radio she was unfazed by "The Immortal" comments, but that Brown should follow Dennis Hallman's lead and try to win a fight in nothing but a banana hammock (pic).

"I want to make it absolutely clear ... I do not care if somebody wants to be a fan or not. Don't pay $60 then. Nobody's taking their top off. I don't even know him. Why would I give a crap what he thinks about my fight? You know what, Matt Brown fight in a Speedo."

All kidding aside, Brown is doing pretty well for himself in the 170-pound division, racking up six straight wins with five finishes. Unfortunately, a back injury has sidelined him until further notice (details). That could work to his advantage, as bra-gate will likely be water under the bridge by the time he returns.
