UFC PPV fight nights wouldn’t be the same without the sexy Octagon Girls. The current UFC ring girls are Arianny Celeste, Logan Stanton and Natasha Wicks, but other super hot fitness models have also been ring girls at the UFC — and we’ve enjoyed every minute of it.
Here’s a look at the Octagon Girls who make and have made UFC PPV fights more pleasurable for us all.
Rachelle Leah is a print and runway model and was a very popular UFC ring girl. She’s 5’7″ and 115 pounds of pure sexy. She was born in Redwood City, California and was involved in gymnastics and swimming before becoming a model for Ford Motor Company. She got her start as a ring girl by helping out a friend at a local boxing match. UFC noticed her and quickly hired her as an Octagon Girl. She carved her spot in history by becoming the first MMA ring girl to appear on the cover of Playboy Magazine in November 2008. She now hosts UFC All Access and made a guest appearance at UFC 90 to promote her Playboy cover.
Arianny Celeste is a Mexican and Filipino beauty who was born in Las Vegas. She got her start at industry trade shows and conventions before attending an open audition with the UFC and becoming an Octagon Girl in 2006. In 2008 she was named one of the top 10 “Hometown Hotties” by Maxim. This year she won the Las Vegas’ Top Model search and FanIQ named her the hottest woman of MMA.
Former UFC ring girl, Ali Sonoma won the first Arnold Amateur Bikini Championship this year. Ali grew up in St. Louis and now lives in San Diego. In 2007 she left the UFC to pursue other acting and modeling opportunities and was replaced by Edith Labelle. Rumors circulated that Ali’s relationship and engagement to Diego Sanchez caused a rift with the UFC. The couple split shortly after Ali left the UFC, citing different career paths as the reason for the breakup. Ali is featured this month on the cover of Muscle and Fitness Magazine, alongside Stone Cold Steve Austin.
Quebec native Edith Labelle, also known as Edith Larente or “Anabelle” within the UFC, took Ali Sonoma’s place as an Octagon Girl, but left the UFC in August under mysterious circumstances. Edith was a no-show at the UFC 100 event and says she was unable to perform her duties because she was ill. She was fired shortly afterward.
Natasha Wicks is the newest UFC Octagon Girl. She replaced Edith Labelle after UFC 100. She’s a Las Vegas native with that wholesome girl next door look. She was the winner of the Maxim UFC Octagon Girl Search and made her debut at the octagon at UFC 101. UFC fans can’t wait to see more of her.
Amber Nichole Miller
Amber Nichole is a former UFC ring girl and has now moved on to acting and modeling. She currently works as a model for Xyience, which is one of UFC’s main sponsors. She also had small roles in Oceans 11 and Rush Hour 2. According to Amber Nichole’s MySpace page, she decided to leave UFC because of some issues she had with Rachelle Leah.
Logan Stanton was modeling in Miami when UFC contacted her agency to request a meeting. She met with Dana White and Craig Bosari, was offered the position of Octagon Girl and made her debut at the octagon at UFC 92. She describes herself as a dork and says she was a tomboy while growing up.
Anne Rivera (Annie Bear)
Anne Rivera is a former UFC ring girl and the current spokesmodel for Mickey’s Malt Liquor. She is a Las Vegas native and graduated from UNLV, but currently calls Los Angeles home. Anne was an Octagon Girl from UFC 64 to UFC 81 and is also known as “Annie Bear”.
