Here’s an interesting way of promoting your league:
T. Jay Thompson, longtime Hawaiian MMA promoter and current head of fight operations for ProElite, made the offer Tuesday via his personal Twitter account: Come to ProElite’s Jan. 21 event dressed in headliner Ikuhisa Minowa’s trademark fight garb and get in free of charge.
“Red Speedos a must!” Thompson wrote.
Red speedos on Amazon.com: $16.95. Tickets to a ProElite show? Between $37 and $217 bucks. And if you’re worried about how silly you’re going to look, consider this: I’d happily wear a Hallman banana hammock forever just for the opportunity to escape to Hawaii from this winter hellscape.
