I don’t know how it feels to have a man crush on anyone simply because, well-I am not a man. I imagine it must feel like a regular heterosexual crush at least a little bit. Like the feeling of jumping into a pile of warm fresh from the dryer towels or maybe like licking the remaining hot sauce from your fingers after devouring a plate of delicious fried chicken wings. That little heart skipping satisfed feeling that you wish you could relish in for an eternity. I can admit that feeling washes over me when I see Kate Upton in the infamous ‘Cat Daddy’ video. There’s no shame in my girl crush game. But can you readily admit your own man crushes like Daniel Cormier did at the post Strikeforce press conference?
“The reason I said I’d fight [Jones] in the fall is I’d need some time to get that weight down, I’m comfortable at 230 right now, but that’s still 25 more pounds. I’d need some time to make weight and I don’t want to fight [next] at 205 because I don’t want to fight Dan Henderson. I’ve kind of got a man crush on Dan Henderson.”
That all makes a lot of sense, no one wants to physically harm the person that gives them that special little tingle in the no-no spot but you do want to take out their adversary. Jones and Hendo never got the chance to fight each other and the whole back and forth blame game surrounding the UFC 151 cancellation has left Hendo with lots of distaste for Jones. Like a true infatuated admirer Cormier wants to step up and take Jones out for his dreamy man-boo Dan Henderson. That’s love, y’all. [Source]
