Oh, these “ring girl searches.” Just related enough to the sport of MMA for us to have an excuse for posting them. I really like Dave Farra’s interview style, because he manages to say things like “Maybe you should go with the ass-shaking thing again, because that worked pretty well last time,” and yet somehow he does not come off sounding like a jerk or a perv, like I would if I said that to a girl in a club.
Seriously though, why do they always ask these girls what they know about MMA? Are we supposed to be disappointed when a wanna-be ring girl can’t even name an MMA fighter? Because I’m not. Nor am I surprised. I am, however, endlessly amused by the girl who says she likes Randy Couture before blowing a kiss to him (assuming that he’s at home watching Raw Vegas videos on his computer, of course). When Dave informs her that he’s married to a woman who can also fight a little bit, she responds, “Well then I guess I’ll have to wait.”
I’ll let you guys debate whether that woman has failed to grasp the concept of marriage, or whether she actually knows enough about Couture’s personal history for that to be a somewhat intelligent statement.
