Felice Herrig Releases New Shower Photos With Nothing On Ahead of Next Fight
“Honestly, if you want to know the truth, I just feel like I’m not young and beautiful for the UFC to want to promote me,” said UFC women’s strawweight Felice Herrig following her unanimous decision victory over Justine Kish at UFC Fight Night 112.
“It’s sad because I’ve really worked hard to be here. It’s hard to see these people who’ve not been through what I’ve been through and just got to the UFC at the right time, and they’re now getting all these opportunities.
“I’ve seen how hard I’ve worked to get here, and it just doesn’t matter because I just feel I’m not pretty enough, and I’m not getting any younger.”
It seems now that Herrig has decided to focus on some self-love, posting some new pictures from her training camp as she prepares for her next bout at UFC 218 that certainly has fans saying that, indeed, she is “pretty enough”.
The first bout at the event is set to be between Herrig and Cortney Casey. Herrig, who is 4-1 in the UFC and ranked 9th as a strawweight will be looking to defend her position in the top 10 of the division against Casey who has alternated between wins and losses in her last three fights.
The card is set to go down on December 2nd in Detroit at the Little Caesars Arena, with Herrig looking to show she has what it takes to crack the top 5 of her division as she looks to extend her three-fight winning streak. Herrig has previously commented that she believes she has paid her dues in the sport, but her marketability may have prevented her from pursuing bigger goals in mixed martial arts.
“I’m not trying to make this like a point finger at the UFC or Dana White or anybody,” Herrig said. “I know they have a business to run. … I’m not the only fighter who feels like this. … We put a lot out there as fighters, and I don’t know – I feel like I’ve paid my dues, and nobody can deny that.
“I’m a UFC fighter, and I’ve worked my way to the top, so I would like a little more love. That’s it.”
