I am convinced that mixed martial arts aka ultimate fighting is the gayest sport ever. I have even blogged about it a bit at Bloggernista, my home blog. My blogger buddy Amicus who writes the amazing Bootstrapping Andrew Sullivan says no. He offers such sports as synchronized diving and synchronized trampoline (WTF?)
Anyhow, I want to throw the question out to you to get your opinion.
To make my case I offer two things: 1. a brief comment from Brit Mark Simpson, the cultural commenter that we have to thank for the term "metrosexual" and the newer, but no less descriptive, "sporno" 2. a video of American MMA hottie Matt Hughes putting the beat down on some poor also hot Brazilian soul.
Say hello to Ultimate Fighting, a new - and ferociously violent - sport from the USA in which two hyper-fit pleasingly muscled young men in Speedos grapple in a cage in positions that Chi Chi La Rue might blush at. Though in Ultimate Fighting, everyone fights for top.
Or maybe they’re just very feisty bottoms.
What do you think?
