The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence was asked about the mixed martial arts (MMA) scene and said she “never really cares” about the fighting genre.
“I don’t think it’s a bad thing.
I mean, I love MMA.
I’ve been involved with it my whole life,” she told reporters during a lunch break at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) on Wednesday.
“There’s nothing wrong with that.
I have to say that I’ve never really cared.
It’s not a bad sport, I’ve got to tell you.
I love it.
I’m not really concerned.”
However, she added that she would be watching UFC events in the future.
“If I was ever a UFC fighter, I would watch them, and I think they’d be very good, I think the sport would be great, and it’d be fun,” she said.
“But I think that would be the first fight I would see with somebody in a cage.
I wouldn’t watch that.
I’ll never do that.” “
For the record, I have not signed up for any MMA fights in the foreseeable future.
I’ll never do that.”
Lawrence’s comments come after the actress was asked if she had any “real concern” about fighting in mixed martial art (MTA) and whether she was aware of the sport’s history.
“Not really, no,” Lawrence said.
The Oscar-nominated actress was referring to her recent comments about UFC stars Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor.
“They were in the UFC for a long time,” she explained.
“What they did in that time was amazing, and they were the biggest stars in the world for a good period of time, and there’s no way I’m going to be involved with anybody else for a very long time.”
She continued: “I think it’d definitely be nice if the UFC had something in common with what the UFC is now.
It’d be interesting, but I’m very, very much on my own.”
She also talked about the lack of women’s MMA in the US, saying that the UFC has “gone to the dark side” by taking a more active role in promoting the sport.
“So I think you’ll see more women in the sport,” she added.
“It’s the way we are, and we’re very proud of that.”
