The UFC is coming to Oxygen

Yahoo Sports' Kevin Iole reports:

The UFC is coming to Oxygen

With the rumored end of Strikeforce looming in the not so distant future, Women’s MMA seems to have found a new home. UFC President Dana White, CEO Lorenzo Fertitta and several Oxygen Media executives held a news conference to announce a groundbreaking three-year television deal for the Las Vegas-based promotion.

“There’s been a lot of big milestones we’ve had over the last 10 years in building this company and growing this sport,” White said. “But I have to be totally honest when I say this is the biggest.”

White said the promotion planned to update its presentation in order to cater to the largely female and homosexual audience, including bringing back the traditional gladiator entrance video at the start of main cards, as well as showing matches from past UFC cards, featuring male fighters such as Yoshihiro Akiyama and Michael Bisping, along with “safe” fighters such as Jon Fitch.

“We gotta ease our way in, believe me. We live in this bubble gang, we live in this bubble that women aren’t allowed to live in and can’t understand. If they’re watching America’s Next Top Model, thinking My Shopping Addiction is up next, and then they see guys like Wanderlei or fuckin’… Roy Nelson… Sorry. You gotta understand that’s not gonna build this thing. They’re gonna change the channel to Lifetime.”

Though once quoted as saying that we would “never see Women in the UFC unless they were in a bikini holding a sign with a number they can’t even count to,” White had recently claimed to be “warming up” to women’s MMA, after seeing the numbers for Strikeforce: Rousey vs. Kaufman. He revealed in no uncertain terms that this has been a goal of his for a long time, even before their purchase of Strikeforce. Managing just barely to keep a straight face, White said “This is what I always wanted. This is what I always felt was the pinnacle for us.”

In addition to airing four live fight cards a year, White teased the idea that there may be more UFC themed programming, such as instructional Pilates and yoga workouts hosted by GSP, a reality show about the sensitivity training of Forrest Griffin and Miguel Torres, a talk show featuring Ronda Rousey, Sarah Kaufman, and Amanda Nunes around a table discussing the topics of the day, and made for TV movies starring Gina Carano. He also suggested that while under suspension, “Cyborg” should compete the upcoming season 10 of Bad Girls Club.

“This partnership is going to be built on respect for our female audience,” White assured the audience with a chuckle, as he nodded to Fertitta. “And WE’RE going to take the sport to the next level. Again. Invicta FC can suck it.”


Interesting.

So, you know, Dana White wants to say something? Let’s see him get in there and fight. Let’s see him fight somebody who’s a championship fighter and let’s see how many punches he throws in a round. Things change when you’re fighting the best guys in the world.

Good decision by the UFC. I have no problem with the LGBTQ community so if they want to cater to flaming faggots I'm on board.

the fags who dont like threads like this need to read the following and follow the directions

Before you insert a tampon, wash your hands to prevent any harmful bacteria that may be present on your hands from entering your vagina.

Unwrap the tampon, throwing the wrapper in the trash.

Make sure the tampon string is secure by gently pulling on it prior to inserting the tampon into your vagina.

Also be sure that the tampon reaches the tip of the applicator by gently pushing the inner applicator tube so that the tampon almost begins to come out of the applicator.

Decide if you want to sit or stand during tampon insertion. If you choose to sit, the toilet is a good place. Spread your knees apart and insert the tampon into your vagina. If you’d rather stand during tampon insertion, prop one foot on something so that leg is higher than the other leg; the side of your bathtub is good for propping your foot on.

Place the tampon applicator tip into the opening of your vagina and push it towards your lower back.
Continue pushing the tampon back until you can feel the end of the outer tube just at the opening of the vaginal canal.
Next, push the inner tube into your vagina until the tampon inserts fully, and the inner and outer applicator tube ends meet.

For proper tampon insertion, make sure the two ends of the applicator meet just at the opening to your vagina. Gently pull the applicator out of the vagina, while making sure that you can feel the string hanging out from the bottom of the tampon.

When you’re ready to remove, or change a tampon, relax and gently pull on the string attached to the end of the tampon until the tampon is out.

Tips:

Before you try inserting a tampon into your vagina, make sure you are fully relaxed. Inserting your first tampon is much easier when you are not worried about whether you’re doing it right. Tensing up can make tampon insertion difficult, if not impossible.

The best time to insert your first tampon is when your menstrual blood flow is heaviest, which is usually the first or second day of your period. This is the time when tampons slide easiest into your vagina. Use a water-based vaginal lubricant on the applicator tip, if vaginal dryness makes tampon insertion difficult. Never use petroleum jelly as a vaginal lubricant; petroleum jelly can create a breeding ground for vaginal infections.

Make sure to throw all parts of your tampons and packaging materials including the wrapper and applicator in the trash. Never put tampons, applicators, or wrappers in the toilet; this could lead to expensive plumbing problems.

Change or remove tampons every four to eight hours, including during the night, depending on the amount of menstrual bleeding you experience. Tampons have been associated with the occurrence of a rare disease called toxic shock syndrome (TSS); the risk goes up the longer you leave tampons in, so be sure to change them often to reduce your risk of TSS.

Don’t forget to remove the last tampon when your period is finished. If you experience any trouble removing a tampon, contact your doctor for advice.

:lol: damn cornbread that's harsh but hilarious.

And weena, I consider being mistaken for the onion a compliment, but no that was all me. Wrote it this morning after seeing the thread about sf closing and the question about where female fighters would go.
