Invicta FC All Pro Women’s MMA is holding an ‘Invicta’s Got Talent’ competition, asking six fighters to submit videos for a fan vote that started on Monday. Currently in first place with 27.72% of the vote is “The Karate Hottie” Michelle Waterson and her two-pronged victory strategy: be gorgeous, and convince reigning UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon ‘Bones’ Jones to put on a pair of speedos and pretend to be a ring girl. Chael Sonnen’s been watching this video on loop all day with a giant exclamation point over his head.
The video is below. Warning: Jon Jones winking and lady-waving at you in bikini briefs will make you feel pretty weird. How you interpret that is up to you.
Additional expert MMA analysis: I think it’s hilarious that “you’re stronger” is sledgehammering a tire (makes sense) and “you’re faster” is throwing punches as fast as possible (also makes sense), but “you’re smarter” is just “you’re faster” with a kick thrown in. Is the trick to being a smart MMA fighter remembering that you can throw kicks? If I start training, should I write “NOT BOXING” on the backs of my hands?
Additional human being analysis: See how weird it’d be if we treated men like we treat women? Also, don’t vote for anything featuring jorts that short.
