Felice Herrig: Why shouldn't I use my sex appeal?

source: itsfightingstupid.ca

Tonight's XFC 17 in Jackson, Tenn. includes a women's fight between Patricia Vidonic and former kickboxer turned mixed martial artist Felice Herrig.

In a recent profile by HDNet's Inside MMA (see below) Herrig spoke frankly about her personal brand.

"I have sponsors that pay me monthly just to train," said Herrig. "So people can knock it, they can say 'Oh you shouldn't use your sex appeal.' Why not? If it brings me the opportunity to get paid to do what I love to do, so I don't have to work a 9-5 job so I can focus on my training … I've worked every angle of just trying to get my name out there, you know, and here I am."

If you are curious about her sex appeal, it is on display in the gallery below of sponsor ads, promotional shots, candid pics, and weigh in and fight images.

omg, lets put her in a burka. maybe the middle east would be better for you. a professional fighter is someone who fights for money. Felice is doing permanent damage to her looks by fighting, so not sure how that is helping her to sell ass.  You don't think she could have made more money byu being a stripper or a hooker before breaking her nose repeatedly?  And please, post links to the photos of Felice getting naked? Or is being in a bikini exposing herself? I hope no "real" fighters are going to the beach exposing themselves.

I see what you're saying, but hell no. Just not the same thing when you've got strikes involved especially.I also don't see a problem with female MMA fighters taking endorsement deals that might have them show a little skin, since the male fighters are usually half dressed in their ads as well. But if the only reason you're getting those deals is because you're willing to strip down more than the other chicks, and not because you've got a successful career, then you're more of a model than a fighter. It would be the same if a fighter who didn't win many fights but was considered good looking suddenly started appearing in a bunch of ads and getting paid more than the better fighters because of his 'fame'. People would think it's bullshit, and probably not consider it jealousy as much as they do with women.And sorry but IMO she's not hot enough to be a model. Doesn't matter though because everyone's got different taste and I'd still hit it because of the whole vagina thing.

I'll never respect females MMA fighters the way I respect female wrestlers. Female MMA fighters fight other women. If they want to be respected they need to not be segregated and fight men. Otherwise they will always be a step down on the pedestal.

 Im saying that a professional martial artist and fighter doesnt also dabble on the side exposing themselves for money. It cheapens their image and makes people question how serious they are. Especially when people are screaming for female MMA to be respected.

 I saw felice get the shit beat out of her the fight before last night and she never gave up.  This is not a career for D level strippers as your face will get busted the fuck up. Not sure why Felice would be considered not a real female fighter.
