Order Jade Bryce’s 2015 Calendar, And Support a Great Cause



(Click images for full-size versions.)

When it comes to MMA ring girls, Bellator’s Jade Bryce is certainly in the conversation for G.O.A.T. Our favorite fighter-impressionist has always devoted a large chunk of her life to charitable efforts, and she’s come up with another way to raise money for a good cause: Proceeds from all sales of her 2015 calendar will benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

“St. Jude’s is something that’s very dear to my heart,” Jade told CagePotato. “Children in pain are what keep me up at night, and St. Jude’s takes that pain away for so many of them. Before it was founded, over 90% of children with cancer died. St. Jude’s has completely turned that statistic around — now that many SURVIVE and their parents aren’t charged a dime.

“I have visited the hospital, and it’s the happiest sad place on earth. They give children so much hope in the daily activities, including schoolwork so that they feel like their life is going to continue — otherwise why would they still be in school? They are solely run on donations, and each donation goes towards saving a child’s life.”

Jade’s 2015 calendar is available for $30 at OfficialJadeBryce.com, and all calendars will be signed by Jade herself. Here’s a small taste of the photos in the calendar; we’ve put one more pic after the jump that’s juuuuust a little too risqué to leave on the homepage. Enjoy.

Support St. Jude’s and Win a Date With Bellator Ring Girl Jade Bryce at the 2012 Fighter’s Only World MMA Awards!

(Sure, when Jade hangs out naked surrounded by photos of herself, it’s sexy, but when I do it, my neighbors call the cops.)

Here’s what we’ve learned about Bellator ring girl Jade Bryce in recent months:

1. She is a staunch supporter of the “No pants, no problem” policy when it comes to photo shoots. Seriously, there is not a problem on this Earth she wouldn’t attempt to solve by dropping trou, God bless her.

2. She could whip even the fattest of asses into tip top shape.

3. Her looks are only surpassed by her incredibly humble humanitarian efforts.

So with all that in mind, it makes sense that Jade — who has been nominated for “Ring Girl of the Year” at the 2012 Fighters Only World MMA Awards — will be auctioning off her plus one ticket for the event to the highest bidder in an effort to raise money for the children’s charity St. Jude’s. It’s an incredibly kindhearted move on Bryce’s part that deserves recognition, although if you ask us, the real charity here is that Bryce is willing to spend an evening being ogled at by someone like this while reminding them that “No, I will not demonstrate a proper triangle choke on you later tonight.”

Help Raise Money for Dan Miller’s Son’s Kidney Transplant and Get a Limited Edition ‘Chocolate Al’ Shirt in Return

By Mike Russell

If you recall, we posted a story last week about UFC middleweight Dan Miller’s son, Danny Jr. needing a kidney transplant which is going to cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $100,000 plus an additional $10,000 per month in medication for at least the first year.

With the help of a few kind individuals in the MMA community and with the permission of my daughter Abby who created the meme, we will be selling “Chocolate Al” shirts to help raise money for the cause for one week. If you don’t know who Al is, do yourself a favor and read this first.

After factoring in the cost of the shirts, which will be printed for free by Josh from www.truefightco.com/, and the price of shipping, we came up with a highly affordable price of $23 for the shirt with free shipping in Canada and the U.S. and an additional $2 per item shipped internationally.

From each shirt sold, we expect to make between $14 and $17 and we got word today that “Chocolate Al” himself, Chuck Liddell, has offered to sign a bunch of shirts that will be auctioned off to raise more for the Millers.

Following destruction in Japan, Akiyama pulls out of bout at UFC 128

We feel you, bro.

Those of you living under a rock may not have heard, but the future state of MMA is the least of Japan’s problems right now. Friday’s devastating earthquake not only moved the entire “city” of Japan eight feet, but it also shifted the Earth’s axis. Did you read that? It shifted the fucking planet’s axis. If that measly butterfly flapping its wings in Tokyo could cause big changes worldwide, you’ve already gathered that this little doozy is going to have an effect as well.

But I don’t want to bore you with the details of the Japanese fending off a potential nuclear armageddon, not when there’s big picture stuff like fighters being pulled from the March 19th UFC 128 card. Though he and his family are reportedly safe and out of harm’s way, Yoshihiro Akiyama has understandably withdrawn from his bout with Nate Marquardt.

Corey Hill Could Use a Little Help


(Photo courtesy of UFC.com)

Corey Hill’s sickening leg-break at “Fight For The Troops” was easily one of the worst injuries ever in the UFC.  Just ask Joe Rogan, who has seen it all in the Octagon and still had terror in his voice as he shouted for the fight to be stopped.  Or ask Dana White, who said afterwards: "Had this fight happened 7 years ago, we probably wouldn’t have been legalized."

Gracie Tampa has set up a charity fund to help Hill through his recovery.  Word has it that the UFC paid for his medical bills (which is right friendly of them), but the guy has a wife and three kids who are going to need a little help while Hill recovers, and if you’re not already tapped from giving money to support TBI research, you can go ahead and give money to help a guy who got hurt on the card to raise money for TBI research.  This is getting weird.

The good news for Hill is that his injury was almost identical to the one suffered by Brazilian fighting legend Jose “Pele” Landi-Jons, and he was back in the gym a couple months later, complaining about the fight being ruled a loss instead of a no contest and angling for a rematch.  Then agan, “Pele” is insane.
