(Wow! They just seem so thrilled by the honor!)
This is it, folks — the final round in the greatest MMA tournament since PRIDE’s 2000 Open-Weight Grand Prix. After nearly a month of voting, you’ve whittled our 16-woman field down to two finalists. UFC Octagon Girls Arianny Celeste and Brittney Palmer are the lone survivors, and will be competing for your votes starting right now.
Check out more photos of the two ferocious competitors after the jump, and cast your final vote in the poll at the end of this post. (As usual, if you don’t see it, refresh the page or try a different browser.) We’ll announce the results on Friday. Man, this is really happening. Finish strong, people…

Road to the finals: Defeated Marloes Coenen, Kenda Perez, and Mercedes Terrell
Brittney Palmer (#2 seed, Pool B)
Road to the finals: Defeated Jade Bryce, Kelli Hutcherson, and Gina Carano
