Following a string of wardrobe mishaps, a number of UFC stars have criticised the gear provided to female competitors.
Tatiana Suarez defeated Montana De La Rosa at flyweight during UFC Fight Night 220. De La Rosa was choked with a guillotine in the second round, which brought the fight to a conclusion through submission.
But, the 28-year-old experienced a wardrobe issue halfway through the bout when her Venum top fell down over her chest.
De La Rosa is not the only UFC competitor who has recently had trouble with her attire.
Jessica Andrade was defeated by Erin Blanchfield in the main event of UFC Vegas 69 on February 18 when her breast came loose from her bra.
“This is not an excuse, but when she came for the takedown, I lost focus,” Andrade said following her defeat. All I could think of was my breast. When I used my hand to put my breast back in the top, that's when she was able to take me down. It's all part of the game, though. It's not an excuse. She really had a great game plan. It wasn't on purpose. We have to be ready for everything. I should've been prepared to let my breast be out if it slipped out. It has been shown in so many places before. I shouldn't even be worried about that,” Andrade noted after her fight.
PFL fighter Jackie Cataline has also reacted to the issue. She noted that the issue was not restricted to the UFC alone.
“Agree it’s not just the ufc it’s all the organizations. They need to do a better job of making sure this doesn’t happen it affects how u are fighting when it happens,” she noted on the Instagram post which carried the statement from Montana De La Rosa.
