Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

MMA Fighters in Drag Are Famous Now

(If they have seen far, it is because they stood on the shoulders of Akihiro Gono.)

Most of the time when you’re captured on surveillance footage punching people on the street, it does not lead to career advancement opportunities.  But when you’re a fighter dressed as a woman and the dudes you’re seen punching are clearly drunken buffoons, well, that’s the kind of situation the internet was made for. Daniel “Lionheart” Lerwell and James “Lights Out” Lilley may not quite be on the Kimbo Slice level of internet ass-kicking stardom just yet, but for the moment they’re the closest thing Wales has.

Talking with the BBC, Lerwell and Lilley explained that they went out dressed as chicks (and slutty ones at that — how come no one ever dresses up like normal, fairly conservative women, anyway?) with a bunch of their fellow fighters because they “were due to knuckle down to training because we had a fight coming up in six weeks, and it was the last chance for a blow-out.”  And, as we all know, you can’t have a blow-out if you aren’t wearing garters.

Thugs Get Beat Up By Transvestite – Watch more Funny Videos

Sounds like a pretty fun night, until some drunken louts came along:

"I saw these boys go up to James and start calling him names, and then he was hit," said 23-year-old Mr Lerwell, a plumber.

He said he immediately defended his friend out of instinct.

"I was shocked at first, and thought who are these pansies? But I wasn’t really thinking, it was just instinct really."

And just like that, an internet sensation is born.  The hell of it is, these guys had forgotten all about it until the video blew up.  Really makes you think about the particular kind of fame the internet age affords people.  F

or instance, if these guys had beaten up a couple drunk dudes while wearing normal clothes?  Nobody would have cared.  It’s like my father always said, ‘If you’re going to make anything of yourself in this world, you better be willing to put on a short skirt and show some cleavage.’  Of course, my dad is a professional Madonna impersonator in Las Vegas, so maybe that advice isn’t relevant to everyone.

@ gracie

Please don't compare Hockey to the Catholic Church.

I respect anyone (well mostly anyone) who can throw a decent combo on a fucking pair of skates!!

>you can’t have a blow-out if you aren’t >wearing garters.

That's true, it also explains why hockey players are so angry all the time.

Im not saying that playing a sport where guys wear garter belts make you gay but hockey;s scandals are always about coaches touching some 17 yr olds peepeepee and to blow off steam, the canadian hockey team like to play strip shootouts amongst the boys.

Of course, they dont hold a candle next to the homoeroticism of high school and college wrestling. That sport is to old homos what synchronized diving is to hetero guys.

And no, BJJ is not gayer... they wear a gi, so it makes all that body rubbing less gay.

they should have flipped one of the above pictures so that
the guys were on the same side in both shots.
more importantly, when does their show come on?

Getupandkill: Nah, TUF 11: Drag Queens, Trannys and Gays coached by Brock Lesnar! Man, that would be epic. Just imagine Brock having to wrestle with an all gay cast. He'd go Curt Cobain by Episode 3.

And as far as the gay-guy-pic is concerned, all I meant to say is that they are much less ugly than in chick-form. They're sorta like Were-Chicks...I bet there was a fool moon when they mauled that douche. John Landis may alread have secured the movie rights.

Looky there a picture of 831 son, and HAL.

The question is: who would you rather?

is that a before and after pic of Cris Cyborg and Gina Carano?

This really solves a growing concern I have. MMA fighters are incapable of practicing their craft in the streets without insane legal consequences.

Posing as ugly drag queens in order to antagonize douche bags is fucking brilliant. Using this technique MMA fighters can create street fighting highlight reels all while fighting under the pretense of self defense and scaring the shit out of would be gay bashers.

It's a win win all the way around.

If I was Cyborg, I would be sick and tired of being mistaken for a man every time I knocked some British "yobs" out.

Which one is the drag picture?
CAP10- October 8, 2009 at 10:12 am
@GetUpAndKill ... TUF 11: Drag Queens, Trannys and Gays coached by Chuck Liddell... and Cris Cyborg.
NateGetsIrate- October 8, 2009 at 9:58 am
@ GetUp:

Interesting observation there.

It's like i was just thinking that... or maybe i said it.

Oh yeah! I DID just mention all that earlier! WTF!?

Rampage quits to become Mr. T, Forrest Griffin doesn't wanna be a hero, Junie Browning thinks benzodiazepines are candy and only in MMA could Drag Queens become our new inspiration.

@ Ascerendant

So you're saying they weren't ugly gay guys?
Ascerendant- October 8, 2009 at 9:28 am
Amazing how they go from gay guys to ugly chicks in a heartbeat on those two pictures.

Anyone who's ever watched Monty Python knows that those crazy English islanders (Welsh, Scottish, English, heck maybe even Irish) loves wearing them some garters. If they keep dressing this conspicuously, you could follow these guys around with a camera just about any night and catch them drubbing some clueless sods. Almost as good as following Tank Abbott around Orange County and waiting for him to get in a scrape.
Mike Milbury- October 8, 2009 at 9:13 am
Always great to see drunk British yobs get their ass kicked. Those people (The yobs) are nuts if ever read the news stories.
NateGetsIrate- October 8, 2009 at 9:12 am
You heard me say it before anyone else: This is going to be a new trend.

Man... Junie Browning, a TUF recap, a DW interview, and ass-kicking drags. There's been a bit of a dryspell in news lately but today has really made up for that!
Defender- October 8, 2009 at 9:07 am
I don't really think there is much more to say on that...
