This is peak Bellator. It is only down hill here after the world’s second biggest MMA promo signed Hooters waitress Larkyn Dasch to fight on one week’s notice.
LOL of course Bellator would do it.
Gut reaction is to pan this move and get on some very large MMA high horse. Nope, this is pure genius by Scott Coker. Love everything about it and could only love it even more if Hooters waitress Larkyn Dasch walks to the cage next week at MSG in her work uniform.
Is it too late to mock up some bright orange fight shorts for Dasch?
Look, Bellator and Scott Coker really want prospect Valerie Loureda to win next week in New York City. For lack of better terms, Valerie is extremely attractive plus extremely good at Taekwondo. In the MMA world all this put together means a female fighter is extremely marketable.
Don’t just blame MMA, blame every single sport in the world, who somehow still treat female competitors like this in 2019.
Which brings us all back to Hooter’s very own Larkyn Dasch. MMA is more fun when it embraces it’s circus roots. Like our Uncle Joey always says, “let’s have some fun”. Thanks Belly for making MMA a little more fun with this fight.
“I have officially signed a contract with @bellatormma for Bellator 222 and will be fighting at Madison Square Garden next Friday!! This was so last minute I actually signed the contract while I was at work at my side job at @taylor_hooters as a Hooters girl!!”
Yes. It’s happening.
This is simply the best. Better than rest. Better than anyone, MiddleEasy ever met. The entire story of this fight is one big Tina Turner 80s jam. What’s love or fair match making got to do with it?
