It was billed as everything from “The Money Fight” to the “Biggest Fight in Combat Sports History.” In reality, it was one of the world’s greatest professional boxers against an amateur level boxer. In that context, it wasn’t really a fight at all and the Las Vegas odds makers predicted just that. The Telegraph predicted that McGregor would walk away with at least $75 million USD, while Mayweather would walk away with over $200 million. Incredible to imagine that an amateur level boxer would make more money than 20 UFC Championship fights combined! Interestingly, McGregor made more money than even Mike Tyson’s biggest payout even when adjusted for inflation.
Addressing the need of women who desire a category “in-between” the Bikini and Figure categories, UFE has now launched the Women’s Fitness category. For some time, it was thought that the Fitness Model category was this bridge between Bikini and Figure and often confusion was caused when, even at higher levels of competition, women from other categories were doing well in the Fitness Model category. UFE has clarified some of this confusion on our newly launched website by stating “while typically, the fitness model physique has slightly more muscle mass and is more conditioned that what is called for in bikini and is slightly less muscular than what is called for in figure, it is not necessarily the “bridge” between the two categories. For example, the cover of Oxygen magazine has featured both figure competitors and bikini competitors and while the physiques are different, the marketability and charisma of the model, as well as their fit, athletic appearance make them all suitable for magazine publication.”
For many, stepping on stage would be an amazing experience, but it remains a distant dream. Holding them back could be the fear of not doing well or not looking like they belong on stage with some of the other competitors. Maybe “fitness & bodybuilding” sounds intimidating to them and stirs up images of huge and ripped men and women.
