UFC 293 star tells crowd ‘f*** you all’ and shouts homophobic slur

UFC debutant Charles Radtke used a vile homophobic slur and told the crowd ‘F*** you’ following his win over Mike ‘Blood Diamond’ Mathetha. Radtke responded negatively to boos from the crowd, with those in attendance mostly supporting Mathetha. 

The welterweight made his UFC bow with a unanimous decision victory over Mathetha. But he then caused controversy by using a homophobic slur before repeatedly swearing at an unforgiving crowd. 

Mathetha enjoyed some of the support inside Sydney’s Super Dome. Radtke was extremely unhappy with the negativity and gave an expletive-laden interview to ESPN. 

He then used an anti-LGBTQ+ slur towards those inside the arena. Radtke has since apologised but is waiting to see if he will face a punishment.

Asked to sum up his emotions, Radtke took aim at the booing from the crowd. “It felt great,” he said.. “F*** all you f*****s up in the f*****g crowd. Come down here and get some, you p***y ass b****es. F*** you.”

Interviewer Daniel Cormier appeared to laugh awkwardly before cutting the conversation short. Boos from the crowd continued with Radtke holding his arms in the air. 

UFC star Jared Gordon tweeted: “ESPN is not gonna like that.”

Radtke later issued a grovelling apology on Twitter. He said: “I’d like to sincerely apologise to UFC fans across the world and to the fans here in Sydney for the remarks I made post-fight today.

“Those comments are not a reflection of who I am and they don’t belong on a platform as great as what the UFC has provided me. My emotions were running high. It’s hard to explain the way your mind works when you’re locked in a cage to fight another man with your entire livelihood and dreams on the line. 

“I plan to learn from my mistakes from both during and after the fight and I’m hoping that I can get an opportunity to correct them in the future. Chuck Buffalo loves everybody.”

On the same fight night, Manel Kape aimed the same slur at a rival’s team in a similarly embarrassing interview for UFC. He shouted: “You’re not gonna do anything. All your team-mates… you’re a bunch of f*****s.”
