ESPN has somehow managed to get the clothes off the biggest stars in women’s MMA including Gina Carano, Cris Cyborg, Ronda Rousey and now Miesha Tate. Promise them a few glossy spreads or maybe a cover and the clothes just seem to disappear. Don’t think we’re complaining. In fact, we are quite grateful… at least for three out of four of those. Now feast your eyes:
UFC Octagon girl Brittney Palmer recently celebrated a birthday and has been enjoying some time off in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, where she took the following photo that was posted to her website with the caption “Good afternoon @mecabo! #allthatass”. Ms. Palmer has a nice personality and an artistic flair. But really, who cares about all that when her best asset is clearly — clearly — that traffic stopping seat cushion booty. My god.
UFC heavyweight Alistair Overeem posted an interesting photo on his Instagram (@AlistairOvereem) today. It shows a fight poster for the UFC on FOX SPORTS 1:1 card with Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson as the headliner, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua vs. Chael Sonnen and Alistair Overeem vs. Travis Browne all slated for the Aug. 17 event in Boston
Earlier this week our girl Ronda Rousey, UFC women’s bantamweight champion, made Maxim’s “HOT 100” list at No. 29. Now the UFC has three more ladies on Maxim’s fan-voted HOT 100 list of the sexiest women on the planet. Octagon girls Brittney Palmer and the honorary queen of ring girls everywhere, Arianny Celeste made the list, as did Fuel TV host Kenda Perez.
At 2 p.m. ET today, Spike TV is holding a media conference call to announce major talent deal involving Bellator Fighting Championships and TNA Wrestling. It looks like that talent deal could involve none other than former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal.
A photo from today’s press conference in Brazil reveals Anderson Silva will fight Chael Sonnen at UFC 148 on July 7th in Las Vegas.
Japanese Olympic Judo gold medalist Satoshii Ishii is in trouble. As one scholar aptly put it, “This [expletive] done gone and got real.”
You might want to move to Reno, Nev., after you see the ring girls from Fight Republic show off their best assets in this photo taken at last weekend’s “Downtown Showdown”.
We have seen several memorable instances throughout MMA history of injuries that occurred when fighters refused to tap out. This one ranks up there right at the top as one of the worst.
