Not a day goes by where someone doesn’t post a comment on one of our many mean posts regarding UFC ring girls. These posts usually follow the below formula:
- They question our sexuality (actually, I’d trust a homo’s opinion on a girl’s looks more than a straight guy’s)
- They say we’ve never had sex with anyone nearly that hot (for all our hideousness here at Fightlinker, we’ve managed to trick quite a few very hot chicks into nookie with us)
- Add in something about us being immature / jealous somehow (immature yes, jealous … not somuch)
For a textbook example, you can go check out Luke Thomas’ recent post on Bloodyelbow, which is pretty much par for the course.
They’re tinier than I imagined they’d be, but I’m also fairly tall. And I’m sure they are boring people who haven’t had to work on their personality because they’ve gotten by on their good looks. And maybe they are boring in the sack. Who knows? What I do know is that they are incredibly attractive and if you don’t find them attractive, you are most certainly a homosexual. Nothing’s wrong with being gay, just understand who you are. Edith and Arianny appeal to a cheap, doll-like aesthetic, but it’s one that my hormones respond to. I see both (particularly Edith) take a beating about how they look, but the truth is the people doing that have never hooked up or bed down with a woman who looks even half as good. And if they were to bed down with either of them, they probably wouldn’t know what to do.
I do kinda enjoy how he assumes they’re vapid, which to me is a lot more insulting than anything we’ve ever said about their looks. We’ve made fun of the girls in the past for stupid comments during interviews, but we’ve never given them a blanket statement on being dumb. We don’t judge a book by it’s cover … we just judge a cover on it’s cover. Anyways, I just want to address the whole looks thing:
There’s basically two tiers of hotness at any time: actual hotness and relative hotness. You judge the girls you meet on actual hotness … this actual hotness is how you judge if you wanna date them or sleep with them or whatever else you happen to do with girls. On the other hand there’s relative hotness, which is what you use to judge models, actresses, and other ‘celebrity’ figures. In this case you’re comparing them to other girls in the same range. It’s relative, the same way you don’t judge pro fighters on their ability to beat you up, you judge them on their ability against other pro fighters.
So while Edith Larente may not be ugly, she’s waaaay the fuck down the list of hot ring girls, being beaten out by pretty much every girl in the UFC, WEC, Cage Rage, and even a whole bunch of regional promotions. She rates down there with the EliteXC dancers, who at least have the excuse that they’re probably hired for their ‘dancing skills’ (aka willingness to deal with Jared Shaw) and not their looks.
Just thought I’d clear all that up.
