VIDEO | Controversial Fighter Felice Herrig Defends Her Sex Appeal Marketing | MMA NEWS

Felice Herrig has been garnering a lot of attention lately for her out of ring antics.

She recently took to “The Underground Forums” to state her case:

In Response to the whole “Sex Appeal ” thing thats been going around in the media about me lately.
Yes, I do do some risky photo shoots. Yes, I do travel a lot for my sponsors and for fight events. My job is fun so sometimes it might be taken as all play and no work. This is all a part of my job, training, traveling, photo shoots and a lot of other endeavors that keep me in the media light.

I need to do these things to further my career and keep the sponsors happy. None of what I do outside of fighting with the media and photo shoots in a supplement for the hard training and fighting or to mask a lack of talent. Last I checked looks and lack of talent do not put you at the #5 spot in the WMMA rankings or #2 in the Muay thai rankings.

I have a strong desire and passion to fight and put my all in training and lay it all on the line in the cage. I spend a lot more time training than I do doing photo shoots or being in the media. Together my management ( Suckerpunch ent) and I work well to market and promote me and seek out opportunities and together my team and I ( Team Curran) and coaches work together to make me the best fighter that I can be. And at the end of the day it all comes together So I have a career outside of fighting and it keeps my sponsors happy, promotors wanting to book me on their shows and the fans wanting to watch me fight. And it all makes it so that I can support myself as a fighter and put food on my table and a roof on my head.

    Im still trying to work out whether women’s MMA is being taken seriously, or we guys are just getting hardons over the likes of Herrig and Rousey. I’ll start taking is seriously when these wowmen stop using their sexuality to promote themselves and step up their games in becoming class fighters capable of putting on a decent performance.

    • Tom says:

      Capable of putting on a decent performance… There are plenty of talented women grapplers and strikers out there… If they can promote themselves with their looks, do it, it doesnt take away from the talent or skills they bring into the cage. I would rather see a girl use her looks to get recognition rather than most of the tools that run there mouths to get an undeserved fight or recognition.

  3. What? says:

    Who cares whether she uses her sex appeal to market herself. If male fighters could do it they would but they would rather run their mouths to get attention. Either way if somebody is promoting theirself and doing well fighting then that’s good because its gonna get you noticed for a chance to go to better fight promotions and better sponsors.

    What does she keep doing with her hands?

  5. SnakeJake says:

    Her and Chris Cyborg in a hot tub would make a she-male lover’s wet dream.
