This is an article from BloodyElbow that we just had to share…
Justine Kish, who fought well against Felice Herrig at UFC: Oklahoma, was in the center of a now infamous incident relating to her bowel movement. While unfortunate, this type of occurrence is pretty normal in sports. But since we’re in the era of social media, and with this happening on such a big and public stage, the incident immediately went viral.
Kish, who deserves props for how well she handled the situation, said the interactions she has received after it all have been mostly positive… mostly.
When Submission Radio asked about the news of a potential bonus from Dana White, or even possibly received a sponsorship because of it, Kish instead shared a story of a much weirder offer she got.
“The most lucrative offer I’ve got is someone messaged me and said, ‘hey, we would love to pay’ — because I didn’t get my winnings. I would say I returned back with half of what I would have liked to have had, and so the most lucrative was, ‘hey, I would like to buy whatever kind of winnings you lost, I would like to buy your shorts for that same amount to hang them up and blah, blah blah in my man cave.’
“I was like, this is disgusting. There are some really disgusting people out there,” Kish said. “And so they offered me $15,000 for my shorts.
“Some man that wanted a man cave with my shorts – he has like a UFC (shrine). He gave me his name, his email address, all these things. I really don’t want to give too much details, but that was the most lucrative offer and I’m not gonna… I mean, why?” she explained. “People are saying, ‘send them over, just go do it.’ I’m like, ‘oh, alright. Well I’ll give him my information, but I don’t see how this is actually real.’”
MMA fans are weird.
