I spend all day every day in my underwear eating pizza rolls and scrolling through never-ending lists of MMA news, yet somehow I still managed to miss the news that a bunch of female MMA fighters auctioned off their sportsbras for cancer research. Here’s how that turned out:
Invicta FC announced on Jan. 10 via Facebook that their fighters helped raise over $5,000 for breast cancer research with a series of sports bra eBay auctions.
The eBay auctions were spearheaded by women’s pro soccer star McCall Zerboni, six-year-old Emma Bayer and her parents.
The auctions were designed to raise awareness and funds in the fight against breast cancer through the empowerment of women. Funds raised went to the Keep-A-Breast Foundation, a non-profit organization that uses art and educational programs to raise awareness of methods of prevention and early detection of breast cancer.
Among the many female MMA stars who contributed were Racheal Blaze, Emily Kagan, Julie Kedzie, Cassie Crisano, Hitomi Akano, Ayaka Hamasaki, Sara McMann, Ronda Rousey, Katalina Malungahu, Liz Carmouche, Bec Hyatt, Amanda Bell, Cassie Robb, Michelle Waterson, Laura Sanko, Arianny Celeste, Felice Herrig, Sarah Goodlaxson and Tecia Torres.
Rousey’s bra was the top seller, and Celeste followed close behind. Rousey’s bra raked into $810, while Celeste brought in $449. Herrig’s cute pink sports bra sold for $405, and Hyatt’s top drew a high bid of $355.
I cannot tell you how much it upsets me that someone is rubbing their shweaty balls all over Ronda Rousey’s soiled undergarments AND IT ISN’T ME. Do you think Rebellion Media will fund the purchase of sports memorabilia for masturbatory purposes? We could take the money out of Tony GG’s pay.
