[VIDEO] Felice Herrig Defends Sex Appeal in WMMA on ‘TMZ Live’

When we sat down with the lovely Felice Herrig just over a month ago, we talked about everything from the suspicious, last minute withdrawal of her opponent from Bellator 84 to the likelihood of seeing Felice fighting for the all female promotion InvictaFC down the line. But as any conversation with a woman as beautiful as Felice will inevitably touch upon, we ended up discussing sex, sex appeal, and the role of sex appeal in women’s MMA. As you can probably tell from a quick Google search of her name, Felice resides strongly in the “sex appeal as a positive” camp, not only because it boosts her marketability, but because it opens up completely new doors outside of the fight game that could provide a future career for Herrig down the line.

Taking that into account, Felice recently appeared on TMZ Live, of all places, to defend the role of sex appeal in female sports, and in the professional world in general. And for a show that usually spends 30 minutes insulting psuedo-celebrities for being fat and wearing people clothes, the discussion was honestly rather straightforward. I mean, it wasn’t Ronda Rousey and friends talking about Kat Dennings’ awesome boobage, but it was intriguing nonetheless. In short, Felice feels that as long as you can back up your looks with actual skill, then you’d be pretty foolish not to utilize both.

So check out the video above and let us know where you stand on the issue in the comments section. But we beg you, try and stifle your blatant misogyny just this once.

Alexa. I see what you mean... Robert`s artlclee is really great, last friday I got themselves a Renault 4 since getting a cheque for $6928 this-past/4 weeks and just a little over ten/k lass-month. it's by-far the most-financially rewarding I've had. I started this 3 months ago and pretty much immediately was bringing home more than $77 per-hr. I went to this website,, ++++++++++ bit90.com ++++++++

@arm farmer: yes Shogun did some modeling....in fact, he was an underwear model before deciding to fight for a living.....so every fight he's won is an adding insult to injury moment....."you got your ass kicked by a male underwear model!!!!"

I'd still bang her

Don't have speakers on my work computer so I'm not sure what she said, but did she mention sammiches? Please tell me she talked about sammiches!

@ArmFarmer
It is all part of the game, provided you're willing to not bitch about not being treated "equal." The first 3 examples you give, Bisping, Chael, and Lesnar, are among the three most despised people in the history of the sport.

If women fighters want to market themselves as whack-off material, they should go right ahead. But, if you're going to do shit like that, you also shouldn't bitch about how you aren't taken seriously as an athlete or say shit like "women can fight just as good as men!" or whatever line Invicta is trying to push. If you could fight as good as men, you would have to do softcore photo shoots to get people to want to watch you fight.

It's all part of the game in my opinion. I mean, everything doesn't exactly revolve perfectly around wins and rankings now does it? Bisping has his nationality, chael has his mouth, Lesnar has his fame, Bonnar has.. whatever got him the fight with Anderson... so if a hot female fighter gets some extra attention for her hottness.. how is that any different?

Didn't Shogun do modeling? I don't know if it was related to his mma career or not, but I thought I read that somewhere.

No likes to nudity??? I'm shocked

So, using Felice's explanation, if women fighting topless in the cage brings in more viewers, why not do it?
