UFC Vegas 54: Andrea Lee’s cornerman gives her a racist pep talk mid fight

Andrea Lee is on a hot streak. After parting with an abusive nationalist husband, she appears to have followed up with another spicy partner.

During her bout with Viviane Araujo, her corner was caught delivering the following lines.
“That’s what they’re going to do – they’re dirty f*cking Brazilians,” Kelley told Lee. “They’re going to f*cking cheat like that.”

The following line was delivered by a fellow UFC mixed martial artist Tony Kelley.

Once you look past the spicy talk – it’s even more ironic considering it was Lee that was caught cheating on camera.


MMA community watching at home was not at all pleased with Kelley’s comments and a number of high profile MMA athletes shared their condemnation.

Final result?

Vivane Araujo defeats Andrea Lee via unanimous decision  (29-27, 29-27, 29-28).
