Rule 5 Sunday: This UFC Thing

I’m going to admit that I don’t get the appeal of the whole UFC mixed martial arts thing when it comes to women. Granted, we’re blessed by an excess of attractive women here in the United States, but is that any reason for them to be beating each other to a pulp? Anyhow, UFC 200 was held last night in Las Vegas, screwing up traffic for blocks around the T-Mobile Center (more so than normal for a Saturday night on the Strip) and apparently the reigning female champ, Miesha Tate, got choked out by the contender Amanda Nunes. Since Miss Nunes is one of the handful of Brazilian women who is uglier than the south end of a northbound bulldog, we’ll use this pic of the former champion as our appetizer this week. [Insert standard disclaimer here.]

Miesha Tate about to hit the pool.

Ninety Miles from Tyranny leads off this week with Hot Pick of the Late Night, Morning Mistress July 4th Edition, and Girls With Guns July 4th Edition, followed by Goodstuff with Jeri Ryan (one of the few good things about Star Trek: Voyager), Animal Magnetism with Rule 5 “Rule of Law?” Friday and  the Saturday Gingermageddon, The Last Tradition with Adriana Sklenarikova and Brooklyn Decker, and First Street Journal with Norwegians.

EBL’s thundering herd this week includes Olivia de Havilland, Independence Day pinups, Laci Green, Women Eating Fried Chicken, Ivanka Trump, Baristas, and Grace Kelly in High Noon.

A View from the Beach presents Alexandra DaddarioMean GirlsNope, Not YetFive in One Wednesday Eye OpenerA Year and a Day LateHappy Fourth of July!, and Smithsonian Supports Solutrean Hypothesis.

Soylent Siberia returns with some sweetness for your coffee creamer, Monday Motivationer Blonde Fury, Tuesday Titillation Sensation, Humpday Hawtness Hose, Faptasmic Fursday, Corset Friday Fantasm Plasm, T-GIF Friday Eggs, and Wanton Weekender.

Proof Positive’s Friday Night Babe is Brittny Ward, his Vintage Babe is Luana Patten, and Sex in Advertising is covered by Gotcha.

Unfortunately, there’s nothing in the mailbox from Chaz at Dustbury, because he’s recovering from surgery for spinal stenosis, so I snooped a bit and grabbed this post on Bai Ling. Also, one of his friends has set up a GoFundMe. Throw a few bucks at the guy, why don’t you?

Thanks to everyone for their linkagery, especially to those of you who contributed links to the FMJRA to make Rule 5 Sunday (once again) the most linked post last week at The Other McCain. Deadline for submitting links to the Rule 5 Wombat mailbox is midnight on Saturday, July 16; deadline to submit links to the Wombat-socho for the FMJRA is noon on Saturday.

    Jeri Ryan, better known as seven of nine (7 of 9), hosts this voluminous meta blog post; which boldly goes to the far out reaches of the delta quadrant!

    UFC chicks are gross. Anyone catch Serena at Wimbleton this weekend? Pretty sure she’s packin’ junk in her britches. She’s GOT to be a man. Her sister, too. They could both be UFC.

    Women in MMA helped break my MMA addiction. I refuse to watch women fight

    Also I blame Jeri Ryan for Barrack Obama becoming president.

    “… the whole UFC (womens) mixed martial arts thing…”
    HISTORY: Think “Roller Derby”, or maybe “Jello Wrestling”.
    Also, think “How can we justify all these “Womens Health” Dojos and “As Seen on Tee Vee” hyper “exercise” tape sales.

    I spent a couple of years in Germany, Luxemburg, France and the Netherlands. To steal a common Russian phrase, “Ours are better.”

    Ronda Rousey’s attractive, and Miesha Tate’s not bad. Some of the others are easy on the eyes as well.

    Well, it’s not just HER fault. Obama had a lot of help.

    You live in SoCal? If not then I don’t understand how you could ever even begin to think that. It doesn’t matter much though. I’m glad you’re happy.

    Las Vegas, actually, and we see a lot of those SoCal girls up here getting their party on…along with a lot of other gals from this country and others. Ours are better. 🙂

    SoCal girls maintain their health, that’s for sure. I can’t agree with you though but it’s a quibble anyway. Doesn’t matter. Vegas would be very nice in terms of eye candy.
