After being called out by UFC featherweight contender Megan Anderson for his "disgusting comments", UFC bantamweight Casey Kenney has apologized to her directly.
Kenney made the comments on an appearance on the Timbo Sugarshow, along side fellow bantamweight Sean O'Malley.
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.— Megan Anderson (@MeganA_mma) January 28, 2021
Disgusting behavior and it's unfortunate that he'll be fighting on my card in March. https://t.co/hJd1OuHIyD
Kenney responded via Twitter, stating "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.”

Also responding was the host of the show Tim Welch who didn't apologize, but did attempt to defend his line of questions.
The only reason I asked that is because your way taller then casey! I think your hott AF.— Tim Welch (@TimwelchMT) January 28, 2021
Both Kenney and Anderson return to the cage in March at UFC 259, with Anderson set to challenge Amanda Nunes for the featherweight belt, and Kenney taking on former champion Dominick Cruz.
