MMA Family Christmas Wish List Includes Weapons, Luxury Items and Baking Supplies
What does your favorite MMA fighter want for X-mas? video
"We scoured Las Vegas and asked your favorite MMA fighters and personalities what is on their wish list this holiday season! Cameos by: Jon Jones, Chael Sonnen, Wanderlei Silva, Phil Davis, Ross Pearson, Jay Glazer, Miesha Tate, Ronda Rousey, Chandella Powell, Donald Cerrone, Roy Nelson, Ryan Couture, Molly Qerim, Natasha Wicks and many more!" video description by Michael Mardones, FightHub
Christmas Wishes (from the video)
Mixed in with the usual blessings and wishes for good health and spending time with family, the Christmas wishes for gifts included money. MMA fighter, Brandon Vera, is hoping someone sends him $30 million. Brandon must have been extra-specially good this year.
Other big ideas include: 52" television sets (Bruce Buffer), a Lamborghini, a jeep, a new car and a plane.
Tapout founder, Punkass, wants "strippers" with candy canes.
UFC fighter, Stephan Bonner came up with the most original—and well thought out—list: a grenade launcher with grenades and a silencer for the Glock. It's probably a good idea not to raise any controversial topics at the Bonner family dinner table this holiday season.
Other practical gifts making the list included the Shake Weight (always a crowd pleaser), luggage and an easy suggestion from Strikeforce Champion, Miesha Tate.
What does Miesha Tate want for Christmas?
She likes to bake cakes. With baking supplies on her Christmas wish list, Miesha makes it easy to know what to buy her for Christmas.
Always focused on her next fight, Ronda Rousey answered the "what do you want for Christmas" question with the one thing that is always on her mind, scheduling a fight with current Strikeforce champion Miesha Tate - at 135 lbs. In order for Ronda to receive her Christmas gift wish, she'd have to drop to 135 lbs (she fights at 145 lbs. now) and skip over a few female fighters to get her shot at the title.
I would love to see Ronda Rousey fight Miesha Tate. Strikeforce CEO, Scott Coker and his team will decide which fight will draw the most fans. I hope they pick Miesha Tate vs. Ronda Rousey. Ronda's wish is ruffling Sarah Kaufman's feathers. Sarah is next in line to fight Miesha Tate. She sees no reason for Ronda to leap frog over her by dropping weight and facing the champion without paying her dues.
I recently gave my fan reaction to their verbal sparring over who should be next in line to fight Miesha.
