Nate Diaz, Justin Bieber and 5 More MMA Selfies We’d Love To See

March 25, 2016

Yes, hell has frozen over. Not, not because there’s MMA in New York.

Bad-ass fighter Nate Diaz has taken a selfie with the talented, but not-so-bad-ass Justin Bieber.

When the hardest fighter in MMA takes a photo with one of the softest pop stars out there, it makes you think, what other kind of selfies could be out there waiting to happen?

We imagine the possibilities.

5. Ronda Rousey and Kim Kardashian

Ronda Rousey Kim Kardashian HOT SAUCE

Who can forget Ronda Rousey‘s famous words about Kimmy?

“You know what? I would beat the crap out of Kim Kardashian actually. Any girl who is famous and idolized because she made a sex video with some guy and that’s all that you’re known for, ‘Oh, I got my fame for (expletive),’ I think it’s pretty stupid, sorry, but it’s true.”

Will these two divas kiss and make up? We hope so. Holm’s beat-d0wn of Rousey might have humbled the former Olympian and she could be open to the possibilities.

4. Chad Griggs and Triple H

Chad Griggs Triple H HOT SAUCE

Chad Griggs is retired these days, but at one time he was a durable full-time firefighter and part-time fighter, who famously wiped out Bobby Lashley, to the chagrine of everyone in Strikeforce at the time. Griggs hasn’t fought since 2012, and retired with a record of 11-3. Not bad for a guy who wasn’t making MMA his full-time deal. Griggs belongs in the WWE anyway, as the stunt double for the Triple H, the WWE world champion.

Triple H usually doesn’t talk about MMA, unless he’s forcing the writers to put him over Brock Lesnar in the WWE. But Griggs and Trips are clearly born for each other.

3. Conor McGregor and Sheamus

conor-mcgregor-Sheamus HOT SAUCE

OK, the only similarities here are their gimmicks. Conor McGregor, of course, plays the Irish heel role way better than Sheamus, who’s lucky he is friends with Triple H, so he can get a WWE title run every few years. McGregor is everything Sheamus is not in terms of promo and talking skills. Sheamus is everything McGregor is not in terms of natural size and muscles. Put them both together and you might have a guy capable of knocking out Nate Diaz. Maybe Conor can throw a “Brogue” kick in the rematch and maybe Sheamus can learn how to promote a match without saying “fella.”

2. Holly Holm and Tonya Harding

Holly Holm Tonya Harding HOT SAUCE

Seriously, is Tonya Harding Holly Holm‘s older sister? The resemblance is unreal. They both have that Jan Brady look going on.

Harding, one of the most purely talented figure skaters of all time, got a bad rap over that whole, knee-to-the-shin thing on Nancy Kerrigan. Of course, she knew knew nothing, right? She was just a competitive athlete, blind to the unadulterated passion of her boyfriend and bodyguard who conspired to take Kerrigan out all on his own.

We need to see Holm and Kerrigan together. But if Miesha Tate turns up missing before the Holm vs. Tate rematch, we might think twice.

1. A shirtless Cain Velasquez and a fully-clothed Donald Trump

Trump-Cain-HOT SAUCE

What would Trump think of Cain Velasquez‘s “Brown Pride” chest tattoo? Hmm. Velasquez was born in Northern California, the son of an undocumented Mexican immigrant. We know what Trump thinks of people who cross the Mexican border illegally: “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”

Maybe Trump would consider Velasquez’s family “good people” or not. But how cool would it be to see the GOP’s top Republican side-by-side with a former NCAA Division 1 wrestler and great Mexican-American fighter with that tattoo? That would certainly Make American Great Again.
