October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and organizations across the country are going pink to mark the campaign, including Bellator MMA, which will have its fighters donning pink-inspired Everlast gloves.

I like it. I was hoping they'd be all pink, but awareness is awareness.

I honestly hate this. I don't care of you're rocking pink shoes or what have you, but don't mess with glove colors. I could easily see that being a distraction considering it's something you'd never see in the gym.

If you are a professional fighter and can't deal with a glove color change you need to find a new profession.

It's not as simple as aesthetics. It has to do with how your mid-brain processes information during a fight. While I'm sure some folks could adjust to it easily, it's one useless thing on a giant list of things a fighter needs to worry about. Completely unnecessary.

I'd imagine there are more male viewers than female viewers so the more sensible thing to do would probably be promote testicular cancer awareness but oh wait... No one cares about testicular cancer.

Also my Mom is a cancer survivor so I can't be a racist. Oh wait... Lemme try again... So I can't be uhhhh....

This is golden...I've always wanted to make this same point and never found a good context. If you're going to be fairly selective about which diseases about which you promote awareness, why wouldn't you promote one that hits closer to home (pardon the pun)?

Maybe because breast cancer is one of the most common types of cancer out there.
