It’s been over a year since we last gathered together our favorite MMA ring girls, female fighters, models, and TV hosts for an all-encompassing ranking of hotness. Since then, we’ve been introduced to many more beautiful women — while a few of the ladies we previously featured have slipped off our radars.
This year, we decided to leave the rankings in your hands. We’ve constructed a 16-seed bracket featuring 15 of our favorite MMA girls, and one “Wild Card.” (Think of it as a three-way play-in for the last spot. It’ll all make sense soon.) You can check out the opening bracket after the jump. Despite our great admiration for them, we’ve left out some women who don’t currently have an official connection to MMA — Rachelle Leah, Amber Nichole Miller, and Natasha Wicks, to name a few.
Voting for Pool A begins this Wednesday, and voting for Pool B begins this Friday. We’ll announce the round-of-16 results and kick off the quarterfinals next week. After that…well, we really haven’t thought that far ahead. But keep your eye on the site, and help us crown 2011′s Hottest Woman in MMA. Get excited, Potato Nation!
