Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

The 12 Hottest Women in MMA

Between the ring girls, apparel models, television hosts, and the lady-fighters themselves, MMA is a damn fine sport to follow if you appreciate beautiful women. (And my God, do we ever.) So we figured, why not throw together our favorite females from all corners of the fight game and see how they stack up against each other? Enjoy the pics, and let us know how you’d rank ‘em in the comments section. And if you like this list, Digg it!


Hot Contender: Spending her high school years on the boys’ wrestling team gave Miesha Tate the grit she needed to fight in cages for a living. These days, “Takedown Tate” is one of the top-ten 135-pound female fighters in the world, and the combination of her nasty ground-and-pound and natural sex appeal has made her a rising star. You can see Miesha in action next month at Strikeforce Challengers 7 as she takes on Zoila Frausto.


Hot East Coast Girl: A native of Staten Island, Laura is a local legend among MMA fans in New York and New Jersey thanks to her ring-girl appearances for fight clubs like Ring of Combat and Asylum Fight League. As a professional hot chick, she has tremendous upside; let’s hope this exciting prospect gets her shot at the majors sooner rather than later.


Hot Interviewer: She’s not just an amazing set of…eyes. KNOXX Gear’s foxy video-interviewer is a former pre-school teacher (and graduate of Cal State East Bay) with a genuine love of the sport. And yes, they’re 100% real — which is something you can’t say about Ariel Helwani.


Hot Grappler: Kyra is living proof that the Gracie clan occasionally produces daughters. Her outstanding accomplishments in competitive grappling — two titles at the ADCCs, three at the Mundials, five at the Pan American BJJ Games, five at the Brazilian BJJ championships, etc., etc. — compare with those of any of her male relations. Plus, she’s clearly the best-looking Gracie since Helio. Krya is currently training for her MMA debut.


Hot UFC Legend: Rachelle’s round-card-holding days may be over, but the former Octagon Girl has stayed in our hearts thanks to her hosting gig on Spike’s UFC All Access. In 2008, Leah became the first woman from the world of MMA to score the cover of Playboy. Hopefully she won’t be the last.


Hot Fight-Picker: Joanne was our first MMA crush. As the brains (and beauty) behind, Joanne has entertained us since 2006 with her jiu-jitsu tutorials and always-insightful fight prediction videos. The adorable South African’s work now includes fighter interviews, fighter sponsorships, and a budding acting career.


Hot Host: Look, we would have watched Spike TV’s new Best of PRIDE compilation series even if it was hosted by Clint Howard — but we’re thankful that Kenda Perez got the gig instead. The Mexican-American model and “Maxim Hometown Hottie” finalist adds some much-needed softness to the head-stomping brutality of those classic fights. Any girl who fucking loves flying knees is aces in our book.


Hot WEC Eye-Candy: As the ring-girl queen bee for World Extreme Cagefighting, Brittney has been cageside for some of the most thrilling MMA events of the past couple years. The Las Vegas native produces her own thrills nightly as a dancer in the X Burlesque show at the Flamingo Hotel, and also works as a cocktail waitress at Pure Nightclub. You gotta love a chick who knows how to hustle…


Hot Pill-and-Powder Pusher: Don’t ask us how Xyience has managed to stay afloat after their past financial troubles. (This guy knows what I’m talking about.) Nevertheless, the supplement company is still a major sponsor of the UFC, and former Octagon Girl Amber Nichole Miller now collects a paycheck as one of their main spokesmodels. Amber allegedly parted ways with the UFC after a catty falling-out with Rachelle Leah, and we’ve missed her seductive bad-girl appeal ever since.


Hot Fight Gear Model: From certain angles, Jenny P looks less like a real, human woman, and more like an experiment perpetrated by two lonely teenage boys on their computer. You couldn’t draw this girl better. Though Jenny’s modeling resume includes countless magazines and websites, she first came to our attention as a clothing model for MMA brands like Hitman Fight Gear and Take A Nap Fight Gear. By the way, if you’re interested in tons and tons of barely-SFW pics of Ms. P, the Internet has you covered.


Hot Octagon Goddess: The fact that Arianny has survived all of the UFC’s Octagon Girl talent purges says a lot about how beloved she is among fans; once you reach a certain level of hotness, you’re basically untouchable. Simply put, Arianny Celeste is the sexiest MMA ring girl of all time. She’s a master-tweeter, she attends proms with nerdy fans, and she cooks in boots. What more could a man ask for?


Hot Superstar: Gina Carano is the very definition of “wife that.” MMA’s first female star has been crossing over to mainstream success in a big way, pulling in high-profile media attention and a lead role in the next Steven Soderbergh flick. With her thousand-watt smile, down-to-earth charm, and undeniable talent, she’s every MMA fan’s dream woman.

Honorable mentions — Marloes Coenen (MMA fighter), Michelle “The Karate Hottie” Waterson (MMA fighter, swimsuit model), Jenn Brown (Strikeforce/Showtime interviewer), Carina Damm (MMA fighter), Channa Champagne (video host & fight-predictor), LaTasha Marzolla (MMA fighter & former Playboy model), Keri Anne Taylor (Gilbert Melendez‘s hot kickboxer girlfriend), Kerry Vera (Brandon Vera‘s hot kickboxer wife)

ayamichelle- April 10, 2013 at 12:31 pm
article is pure garbage. include chics that are merely related to the sport of MMA? good grief - there's plenty of cute chics who actually fight for a living. arianny celeste? she's a freakin model and, were it the UFC, she'd be a model for some other random advertiser. brittney palmer? heck, i like MMA. im told im cute, should i be in the list? seriously though - how about michelle waterson?

I would like to see a list of hottest women in MMA, that were actually IN MMA!
Only fighters on the list.
Am I crazy?

You forgot Zoila Frausto, Tate's next opponent.
Mescan_Judo- March 11, 2010 at 12:02 pm
Sorry, I got a little too excited and posted twice.

Carry on.....

a that was cool to see ben tell that dummy get the fuck offf his site. CLASSIC
ReX13- February 26, 2010 at 11:18 am
Another vote for Sarah "Sugar Toe" Ponce. Also, Erin Toughill may be batshit crazy, but i thought she was pretty hot...

I'm over Arianny. I don't know why, but she just doesn't push my buttons.

Carano deserves a top 10 spot, but not top 5, IMHO.

Jenny P, Miller, Palmer, Ponce and Gracie move up (my) list.

I enjoy Spracklen's videos, but i move her out of the top 10. Perez is aight, but drops down the list as well. Meredith Divita is a new hot potato to me; more research is needed, but i like what i see so far...

Lastly, i am amused that Ben is actively engaged in this particular conversation--two posts in the same topic. Say what you want about Fedor being a loser, Aoki having teh ghey, or Brock Lesnar being the greatest fighter OF ALL TIMEZ!!1!1!!, but if you disparage Ben's women, you **will** hear about it.

What no Tracy Lee?!! Haha, just kidding, she's gross.

First place should have gone to Arlovski and Sylvia's ex-girlfriend (the one that tasted Arlovski's pee-pee). I still remember when they showed her in the crowd with Arlovski for the first time... INSTABONER!
andoy162- February 26, 2010 at 5:03 am
more than a pretty face and a hot woman, meisha tate should've been number one.
4th and Schlong- February 25, 2010 at 9:33 pm
Cyborg got robbed. I feel sorry for you when she gets wind of this....
vengful1- February 25, 2010 at 7:07 pm
Actually, the fact the Carano is a talented fighter does make her prettier to most MMA fans.
Sho Nuff- February 25, 2010 at 6:53 pm
No list of hottest chicks in MMA can be complete without Cyborg Santos!
Patrick- February 25, 2010 at 5:07 pm
Making a list that ranks them in a definitive order is pretty objective in and of itself. Don't get uppity if people want to put in their two cents. Had I made a statement that you agreed with I'm sure you would have had no problem with my lack of subjectivity.
RaginAsian- February 25, 2010 at 4:47 pm
MMA news reporter camaraderie bias be damned, Kyra should've been at least above Joanne. Higher in my book. She ridiculously cute.

Nevermind the eighteen brothers, cousins, uncles, etc. that would kick my ass if I had her out past 11.
Lek- February 25, 2010 at 4:15 pm
Airbrushed or not, that ass in the first picture had me mesmerized
