WATCH: UFC fighter makes pro-gay statement after revealing underwear

LAST UPDATED // Tuesday, 29 July 2014 10:44 Written by // Sabine Brix

Ultimate Fighting Champion (UFC) competitor Kyle Kingsbury has used a match weigh-in to make a statement on LGBT rights while exposing his underwear.

To give you an idea, UFF is a rather violent mixed martial arts form which combines boxing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, karate and wrestling. Initially, the only banned moves were eye gouging and biting - not generally the type of sport one may associate with pale pink underwear and slogans advertising sexual equality, but Kingsbury has altered this.

In a clever move, the 32-year old fighter used a televised match weigh-in for his fight against Patrick Cummins to display his underwear as real estate, championing the cause for LGBT rights. Kingsbury can be seen stripping down to his jocks at the 25.00 minute mark, his underwear emblazoned with the words ‘legalize gay’.

Although Kingsbury lost the fight, and subsequently retired thereafter, he has undoubtedly won a whole new legion of fans.
