[WATCH] Michelle Waterson responds to the uneducated actress Meryl Streep’s MMA dig

American actress Meryl Streep took a huge dig at Mixed Martial Arts during her acceptance speech at the Golden Globe Awards this week. The uneducated actress showed complete ignorance during her acceptance speech.

So Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners,” Streep said as she accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award. “And if we kick them all out you’ll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts, which are not the arts.

UFC President Dana White was one of the first to comment, telling TMZ “Of course it’s an art. These fighters, these men and women are so talented…saying something stupid like that is like saying…she’s not a talented actress which she is.” He added, “We have fighters from all over the world…She’s not educated about the sport and that was a completely uneducated comment.

Another person who Streep’s jab at MMA did not sit well is “The Karate Hottie” Michelle Waterson who is currently one of the UFC’s biggest female stars after her December victory over Paige VanZant.

Take a look at what she had to say below:

  1. this is what happens when those who feel they have enough limelight and ” likes” extend their comments to a sphere they know NOTHING about and in totally irrelevant contexts . When all you are is an actress, all you should comment on is acting…. spare us your performing “tears and emoticons ” , Do not take advantage of the platform….to MAKE YOUR STATEMENT … this also goes for Leornardo on climate change…..
