(For all you high rollers out there, $5.99 gets you one of these signed with lipstick.)
What in the hell is happening in the world of MMA? First we find out that Ken Shamrock will talk you into a living death for only $11.99 a minute, and now this noise.
Gentlemen, have you ever found yourself watching a Miesha Tate fight and thought, “You know what, that woman is a great fighter, I would love to show her my penis over the internet.” Well today is your lucky day, because a thread on the UG recently brought to light that the former Strikeforce bantamweight women’s champion has apparently launched a “members only” website, where just $4.99 a month (!!!!) gets you access to the following:
-Latest and up to date news
-Latest and up to date appearances and schedule
-Exclusive photos not found anywhere else
-Exclusive videos not found anywhere else
-Access to store for merchandise and memorbilia
-Contests available to fans only
-Be able to submit your picture with Miesha that will be permanently on her website
-Chance to Video Chat with Miesha herself (times and days TBD)
-Book 1 on 1 video chat
-See Marzia stream live from her phone (coming soon)
Let’s see you top that, Carmen!
In all seriousness (or at least as serious as we can be while discussing this), the items on this “members only” list seem to range from whatever the opposite of business savvy is to downright strange. Why would you limit who can purchase your merchandise to only those who have signed up for an additional fee to do so? Does she realize that most of these “exclusive” videos and photos will be made public as soon as they are put up on her website? And what kind of basement-dwelling sad sack would actually pay to have their fanboy photo with Miesha on her website? Though to be fair, it could bring a whole new meaning to the term “fist-posing.”
I went there. I apologize.
But rather than continue to mock this idea all over again, I’d rather let the anonymous members of the UG who came across this news do it, because they pretty much cover all the pseudo-sexual and downright mean comments were planning to say anyway. Enjoy.
YellowWrkedByTapIn: She is going to see a LOT of dicks.
Hocky Balboa: I’m kinda broke at the moment, so I’ve been jerking off to Giant Silva video chats for less than a dollar a month. (Ed note: This is my personal fav.)
58miles: Well when even elite WMMA fighters make less than a 17yr old full-time cashier at Walmart, these kinds of situations are going to occur.
_33 24: How long till Honda pays for a chat to break her balls?
And finally, Card, who proves that life, as in movies, is about showing, not telling:
According to the thread, Ronda Rousey has apparently already been notified of this and if history tells us anything, we can expect and epic surprise chat session any day now.
Break out those billfolds and stay tuned.
