Lydia Warren, Real Cappers, Peloton Wife

Real Cappers receives mentions of “Peloton Wife” similarity after UFC 294

Lydia Warren (2-1) is one of the most well-received female mixed martial arts prospects competing in the sport today.  The 27-year-old rising MMA star from New Mexico has more than 40,000 Instagram followers.

As a result of her ever-increasing social media stardom, Warren has been invited to work with Real Cappers, a user-friendly mobile app that is the ultimate companion for all your MMA betting needs, providing a platform for accessing various sports predictions from top-notch professionals across various disciplines.

Prior to the big UFC 294 pay-per-view in Abu Dhabi on Oct. 21, Warren posted a clip to her feed to help promote the brand.

In the video, Warren can be seen approaching one of her friends who is visibly upset because her boyfriend allegedly told her that he was going to break up with her because she didn’t understand sports betting.

Warren responds, “Why don’t you just download Real Cappers?”

When asked what Real Cappers is, Warren responds, “It’s an app.  It’s where all the sports analysts and experts weigh in on their opinions and they tell you all their predictions about what they think is gonna happen.  So, you don’t even need to know what you are talking about.  You can just pretend.”

Her friend then thanks her for the advice and Real Cappers for saving her relationship.

Then while watching the pay-per-view unfold in real-time, Warren asks that same friend who she bet on.

The young lady responds, “Oh, I bet on Volk (Alexander Volkanovski).”

Unless you have been living under a rock the past week, you know that the current featherweight champion was knocked out in the first-round while attempting to claim the lightweight title from champion Islam Makhachev.

“Oh no, he lost.  Now my boyfriend’s really going to break up with me.”

“Speak for yourself,” Warren responds.  “I used Real Cappers and they predicted that, that fight wasn’t going to go the distance at all. So, you might have lost, but I won.”

The clips, while promotional also have a little bit of comedy to them, and have been receiving mentions of similarity to that of the “Peloton Wife” debacle that unfolded several years ago.

In 2019, Peloton Bike put out an ad that was hailed as controversial because a man gifted his wife an exercise bike for the holidays.

The look on the woman’s face raised concern and led to a movement suggesting that a male figure was trying to tell his spouse that she needed to exercise.

Actress “Monica Ruiz” became known as “The Peloton Wife” and she too received negative press as it was implied that she permitted the husband to insult her character.

Ruiz did get another job soon after the commercial when she starred in an ad for Aviation Gin, partly owned by actor Ryan Reynolds, that poked fun at the Peloton ad.

In the ad, a stunned-looking Ruiz gulps down the gin while her friends comfort her at a bar.

Reynolds tweeted out the ad, saying, “Exercise bike not included.”

Reynolds and the gin company were able to market their brand off the attention that Peloton bike was getting.  It helped Ruiz land back on her feet and did wonders for the adult beverage.

In a way, Real Cappers too was quick to the trigger as Warren was able to make use of Volk’s unfortunate loss.

The UFC returns this weekend with heavyweights Derrick Lewis and Jailton Almeida in the main event.  Be sure to visit Real Cappers and download the app ahead of the fight to see what the experts are predicting.
