21 Humans Who Make Being Human Look Really, Really Hard

Jon Jones. Banana Hammock. Male Ring Girls. Michelle Waterson. I Don’t Know, Man. [VIDEO]


(Skip to 1:05 for the bad stuff.)

As you can tell, this new Invicta 3 promo starring Michelle Waterson defies normal headline writing. We could call it amateurish and weird, and more cheap ammo for the Jon Jones haters, but that would be dismissive. Personally, I think it’s a clever parody of how female fights are promoted, and how discussion of Waterson almost always focuses on her “Karate Hottie” persona, rather than her fearsome skills as a fighter. And so, the female athlete gets a moment in the spotlight, while the boys in the gym — some of whom are much, much more famous than Waterson — are reduced to scantily-clad eye-candy.

I mean, you have to believe that this video is trying to make some kind of statement, right? Otherwise, how the hell would you explain it? When Michelle and Greg Jackson were spitballing viral video ideas in his office, did Jones pop his head in and say, “I FEEL LIKE I COULD MAKE A GOOD RING GIRL, LIKE MAYBE THE BEST RING GIRL EVER, EVERYBODY KNOWS THIS, PHILIPPIANS YOU GUYS”? Really, does that sound like the Jon Jones you know?

The real star of this clip is obviously UFC heavyweight Travis Browne, who sells the shit out of his role as “ring girl #2.” Gotta love the blown-kiss at 1:18, and his celebratory hop at 1:31. The guy has clearly mastered the art form. So does this mean Arianny will try to get him fired now?

When I read this last night I got drunk and hit on Michelle on Facebook. Wish me luck. I think I can nail her.

trying a wee bit too hard there Nipple. Don't emulate the haters you are so fond of

Jones is just letting in inner bitch shine thru.

Invicta... isn't that a brand of cheap watch sold on Overstock.com?

I hope I never see J. Jones in a banana hammock again. Either one of them.

This video was amusing. Travis Browne is a hoot. I don't think it was successful though because most comments have been about everything except Invicta. That being said, I have no issue with male ring card carriers.

jon jones is a filthy fucking liar, how dare he make this video?!? I am disgusted,
Mr_Misanthropy- September 17, 2012 at 11:13 pm
Yeah, what a fag. I'll bet he has homosexual anal intercourse with other men.

jones is so cocky

I love satire. The bit where Greg Jackon's saying "let's finish this fight" is priceless.

The entirety of Browne's performance was hilarious.

I feel like Bones is actually an ok dude, he just tries too hard in interviews. Either way, he should keep that mountain man beard. The bear community would eat that shit up.

In a sudden turn of events Jon "Gaybone" Jones manages to sweep the entire fight world by storm by becoming the first gay ring girl in the world. Not one to be outdone, the world of ring girls will never be the same. Ariany tweets "I think it's cute to have male gay ring girls -- I'll kick her ass anyway xxoxo".

Oh shit! I meant gay. pshh that's gay.

Jones pulls no punches in his quest to "go get some fans". Guy community targeted. No mercy.
Nippletwist- September 17, 2012 at 1:03 pm
jon jones is so gay

I thought JBJ said the UFC made him feel like a piece of meat and he did NOT appreciate it. Well, what is he doing here? Yet another contradiction in a long line of 'em.
That being said, Travis Browne is one funny dude.

Maybe Invicta will realize that the reason women's sports are always sold using some appeal to sexual titillation is that women suck at sports compared to men. Serious, put Waterson in with any random 135 pound high school wrestler and watch her get pulverized. If women wanted to be treated the same as men, they should compete against men. Until then, they should be prepared to keep wearing leather cat suits.

If her nickname is Karate Hottie then she made her bed as far as how shes promoting herself.

If this doesn't make you want to watch Invicta, nothing will!

(I'm talking to Nick Ring and his fans...)

Good call on Browne...subtle gesture, massive impact.
