However, in an April Fool’s joke that is eight moths overdue, we were only messing around. Now, the two fighters will resume their scheduled … Read moreJust messing around!

Max ‘Blessed’ Holloway squares off with Jon ‘Tighty Whities’ Stewart

max-blessed-stewart-tighty

Max Holloway and Paige VanZant repped the UFC during a recent USO tour to visit the troops. They joined other athletes and celebrities to bring smiles to our deployed troops’ faces. Being that one of the celebrities they were with was none other than Jon Stewart, smiles on faces were a no-brainer. Especially when Max squared off against his tighty whities counterpart, Stewart.

Fighters usually keep their composure when doing a stare-down, but when it’s against an old white guy who pulls his skivvies WAY over his belt line; Even the featherweight champion of the world can break.

Stewart added an especially nice touch and ensured Holloway would back down by rubbing his nipples after. As you can see in the video, the troops LOVED it! As my father once told me, “Nipple rubs always win over a crowd”.

Paige VanZant’s book details trauma. Twitter couldn’t wait to be scumbags

paige van-zant

It’s incredible. People have no shame whatsoever. Earlier this week Paige VanZant’s new book came out and it sadly details how she was gang-raped at just 14 years old. In typical fashion, it took only minutes for people to come out and show how disgusting they really are. MMA Fighting’s, Marc Raimondi, transcribed a passage … Read morePaige VanZant’s book details trauma. Twitter couldn’t wait to be scumbags

Here’s Paige VanZant video from Good Morning America appearance

Paige VanZant

Paige VanZant recently opened up about being raped, bullied and developing an eating disorder.

Paige VanZant seems to be a lightning rod for criticism and outspoken opinions. People feel like she was brought along in the UFC more because of her looks than her talent, and as a result, there was jealousy, anger, and resentment. While she continues to battle inside the cage for acceptance, she is also opening up about her painful past. We reported before that Paige was writing a book. She appeared on Good Morning America to discuss it.

She is currently on tour speaking out about her sexual assault, being bullied and how she developed an eating disorder as a result. It’s very brave of her to open up and share this with others. If her story can help one person, she’ll be happy. This morning she was on Good Morning America to discuss it.

Her story is very moving. She was sexually assaulted in high school, and mercilessly bullied after the fact. Paige was bullied so much, that she actually legally changed her last name.  She contemplated suicide saying, “You don’t want to die, you just want the pain to stop.”

Here’s hoping her story can reach someone else who might be going through a similar situation and needs to find inspiration.

Jessica Eye had a lot to say and it wasn’t pretty for Paige VanZant

jessica-eye-lot-say-pretty-paige-vanzant

Jessica Eye aired out her grievances about Paige VanZant on Facebook Live and it wasn’t pretty. She had a lot to say about ‘America’s Sweetheart’ and was clearly frustrated at her current situation. The two were originally scheduled to square off at UFC 216, but VanZant pulled out of the fight due to an injury. They were supposedly rescheduled to fight again sometime this year, but apparently, now that isn’t happening either.

“I told Paige, ‘Alright let’s do it’ and she says the same thing. She verbally agrees. The contract comes over and we sign. The fight is fully signed for October 7th. So, from there, a couple weeks before it’s about to happen, Paige pulls out due to a back injury; Which we totally understand. Injuries happen.

We said that we’ll wait for that fight. A lot of girls were out and couldn’t fight, so there’s virtually no one else for us to fight at the moment. A fight was made so a fight should happen. As a woman and a professional, Paige and I both agreed to that fight, knowing what might be at stake and what might not be at stake.

So a couple months later the contract comes through. I signed my contract to fight Paige VanZant, again.

I received a phone call today that Paige VanZant, not this time is injured, but is refusing to fight me.

We have a legal signed document that we agreed upon that I signed for you. You agreed, as a professional and as a woman, to fight me because you’re an athlete and you’re a professional fighter. That’s what professional fighters do and we don’t run from each other.

It doesn’t matter what you did at 115 pounds and it doesn’t matter what I did at 135 pounds. All bets are off now and it doesn’t matter because that wasn’t 125 pounds. This is the new weight class.

You said that this fight does nothing for you because I’m coming off of a loss and that it’s too tough. Then why did you contact me originally? Why did you talk to the UFC and make them jump through hoops to constantly give you what you want? It’s unfair and I don’t care who agrees with me or not.

I appreciate all of you fans that do agree and all of you that don’t. This is my world and I live in it. You guys just watch it from the outside and it’s bullshit. It’s absolute bullshit that you can pull out of a fight for no apparent reason, other than you’re scared. That’s not cool and it’s not what we represent here as fighters.

Isn’t that what you’re supposed to promote as a public figure who has a blue checkmark? We’re fighters and we’re here to fight, not to be friends. We’re not here to be the prettiest, we’re not here to be the ugliest. We’re here to fight. And that’s what I came to the UFC to do, to fight.

It’s bullshit, Paige. And I hope you hear this.”

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that more than likely, she heard this.

Chris Weidman parodied Paige VanZant’s sexy deleted Reebok video.

Chris Weidman parodied Paige VanZant's sexy deleted Reebok video.

Paige VanZant quickly removed her sexy self-promotion video of Reebok’s new clothing line after receiving immediate backlash. Fans and fighters jumped all over VanZant for her phone-sexish video. Another Reebok sponsored athlete, Chris Weidman, just took to his Twitter and parodied VanZant’s video. Weidman hit a homerun with his hilarious mockumentary.

Paige VanZant deleted this sexy video after backlash from the MMA community.

Paige VanZant flaunted her body donning Reebok gear in a sexy homemade video that she posted online. After immediate backlash from other fighters and MMA fans, she promptly took it down. However, not before the pervs all came out of the woodwork and downloaded it for themselves.

Paige VanZant is a beautiful woman, but this video came off rather cringeworthy. I understand what she was initially trying to do. She was trying to act cute and push the brand that sponsors her. Sadly, this video did not come off that way. Lifting her shirt up and rolling around on the carpet is not going to get people taking you seriously.

When you put yourself out there in this fashion, you have to expect some backlash. Fighters chimed in and voiced their opinions.

There was no way we were going to post fan responses because they were just way too disgusting and inappropriate.

In the grand scheme of things, this really wasn’t a big deal. It was just a young lady making a silly video. Although, she has to be aware that being beautiful in 2017 combined with the anonymity of the internet, will more than likely lead to something bad happening.

Take a look and judge for yourself.
