UFC hired TikTok star Addison Rae to be a red carpet correspondent for UFC 264. It sounded like a good idea at the time, but that tenue with the Ultimate Fighting Championship didn’t last long.

Rae sparked a huge controversy when she tweeted out two photos of herself in front of the UFC red carpet set with a caption that irritated a lot of people. Some grind their entire careers to get a gig like the one Rae was handed, and her tweet did not really show the most respect for the job.

“I studied broadcast journalism in college for three whole months to prepare for this.”

Fans were a bit irritated by this tweet and they fired off replies. The UFC apparently listened and they fired her for the tweet. She later tweeted out to let fans know about her termination as she blamed them for it.

nvm y’all got me fired.

Addison Rae has other projects in the works and she’s also flooded with endorsement deals as a TikTok star. She will land on her feet, but it won’t be under the UFC banner.

H Jenkins

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
