James Michael, also known as ‘The Redneck Magician’, has done what no magician before him has ever done - tricking a female UFC fighter into flashing her bare bottom.
Michael is a comedy magician who spent the last 20 years traveling across the globe, drinking beer and perfecting his crowd-pleasing magic tricks.
‘The Redneck Magician’ ran into UFC’s Felice Herrig on the streets of Las Vegas and decided to capitalize on the moment and his special guest in attendance. After roping her in with a few classic card tricks, he executed his grand finale— getting Herrig to show the world her bare bottom!
Herrig proved to be a willing participant and a good sport. She remained cheeky throughout the ordeal and even dubbed Michael as ‘The Pervert of Magic’ before parting ways.

Born in Buffalo Grove, Illinois, she began her career practicing kickboxing and Muay Thai before transitioning to MMA in 2009. In September 2011, she signed a multi-fight deal with XFC in Florida.
