Felice Herrig on TMZ defends sex appeal in WMMA


The role of sex appeal in women's sports is a contentious one, and women's mixed martial arts is no exception.

Firmly on the side of sex appeal rocking is Chicago's Felice Herrig, who appeared on that most erudite of media TMZ.

The interview was actually pretty cool, and Herrig's contention that as long as you can fight, there is nothing wrong with sex appeal, will be unlikely to find broad criticism.


What do you think about sex in fighting? Does it help if a female fighter is sexy? Does it help that GSP is sexy?

you people need to stop pretending girls are buying men's fitness magazines to oogle at the MMA fighters, it doesnt happen.but i agree, its not much different then the platforms the male fighters use to reach out to their fans and new fans.

This...It would be better for female fighters to just get ahead on their quality but if since the money is still very limited to have to be a little inventive. As long as they do not mind, are decent fighters and can play around with it a little i do not see the harm at all.It better then trying to stir up controversy by saying dumb shit almost all the time.

Felice is gorgeous AND talented.  So what if she's sexy?  More power to her.

Women or men aren't into men in banana hammocks, otherwise you would see that. Instead they are shown lifting weights and exercising with their shirts off, that's what appeals to women (and men). Do you see men in thongs in women's magazines? No, you do not.
