Whenever my girlfriend sees pictures/videos of women ‘pretending’ to be MMA fighters for the sake of sexing-up a sport in which being sexy has nothing to do with the subject matter, she violently assaults my computer monitor. I’ve subsequently learned to watch Bellator while she’s at work because the sight of Mercedes Terrell submitting Jade Bryce in their weekly breakdown would force me to replace our third plasma screen in just under twelve months. This relationship has been costly. I don’t blame her for feeling the way she does after reading the countless comments on any article we post about female fighters, particularly the more attractive ones. I also don’t blame my local Best Buy for recommending an amazing warranty on all the electronics I buy.
Hopefully, she won’t mind these pictures of Justin Bieber pretending to be a lot tougher than he actually is. After all, this it’s not exactly a girl (technically), and he’s not exactly winning whatever fight he’s pretending to be a part of in this MMA-inspired photo shoot by Complex.
