CASEY KENNEY has been forced to admit he was ‘wrong’ to joke about whether or not he would have sex with UFC star Megan Anderson.
Speaking on a podcast last week, the 29-year-old made crude remarks about his fellow competitor.

On the Timbo Sugarshow podcast, Kenney was asked if he would ‘smash’ Anderson, 30, and responded in detail.
He laughed: “Probably not, man.
“She’s not too… well, I mean, if it came down to it, and it was like 5am.
“She’s a 5am-er, 4am-er.
“Just us two hanging out, like, ‘F*** it, let’s do it’.”
Anderson described the remarks as ‘utterly degrading’ and stated her disappointment that Kenney would likely face no repercussions.

She tweeted: “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.”
Kenney apologised to the Australian on Thursday evening and accepted he was in the wrong.
The American replied on social media: “I’m sorry this upset you.
“I will be more careful with my words.
“I was just answering a question and thought it was all a joking matter.
“I see I was wrong and I’m sorry. Best of luck with training camp and your fight.”
The pair are both set to face potentially career-defining fights on the same card at UFC 259.
Anderson will go toe-to-toe with featherweight queen Amanda Nunes on March 6.
Meanwhile Kenney is preparing for a showdown with former bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz.
