Lingerie Fighting Championships Would Love To Sign Ronda Rousey
The Lingerie Fighting Championships sent out a press release yesterday showing interest in Ronda Rousey if she ever retires from the UFC. The statement read:
Lingerie Fighting Championships, Inc. (“LFC”) (OTCQB:BOTY) announced today that it will pursue Ronda Rousey in the event she retires from the UFC.
“Ronda Rousey has long been at the very top of our wish list,” said Shaun Donnelly, LFC’s Chief Executive Officer. “Not only is she one of the top fighters of all time, she is also a very beautiful woman who isn’t afraid to show off her sexy side.”
LFC has never made an offer to any fighter already under contract with another league but recent rumors that Rousey plans to retire if she loses a rematch to Holly Holm has changed the landscape.
“We have reason to believe that Ms. Rousey might seriously consider a role with Lingerie Fighting Championships, either as a competitor or an ambassador,” Donnelly says. “She has been critical in the past at how little female fighters are paid and LFC has always shown a real commitment to paying our fighters very well.”
Previous LFC events have boasted purses in excess of $15,000 and while Donnelly acknowledges this is a very small sum compared to what Rousey earns with the UFC, it is anticipated the publicly traded company might make an offer that combines purse with shares of the company.
“It’s still a long shot at this point,” Donnelly admits. “For one thing, I don’t believe Rousey will lose to Holm a second time. She’s an exceptional fighter and she’s going to have a long time to prepare. I wouldn’t bet against her under those circumstances.”
In the meantime, Lingerie Fighting Championships 21: Naughty ‘n Nice will air on more than 1000 cable / satellite systems and networks worldwide on August 12 @ 10pm ET / 7pm PT. Check your local cable listings.
Is it me or does the timing of this press release seem fishy? They are just trying to drum up publicity for their event that airs August 12 @ 10pm on more than a 1000 cable/satellite systems and networks worldwide. I am not going to be fooled though. There is no way I will mention their event even though it combines my two favorite things (half naked girls and MMA).
