Not a bad way to start your morning: Gina Carano has taken advantage of her current unemployment by posing for a new set of pics in Maxim. Check out her "My First Times" interview here, in which Crush/Conviction discusses her first fight inside the ring, her first fight outside the ring, and her first kiss. ("It didn’t smell good.")Read More DIGG THIS

(Nothing like a photo shoot in someone’s backyard in Simi Valley to make you feel like you’ve really arrived.)
Tremendous props to Fightlinker for this find. Not to be outdone by the semi-nude pictures of Arianny Celeste that hit the internet this week, former UFC Octagon girl and Diego Sanchez ex-girlfriend Ali Sonoma has a charming little layout of her own at the absolutely not safe for work (even if you work at a strip club) website, Girls of Desire, via some other site called Next Door Models.
So why is Ali in her bikini on a porn site? Are there more pictures that are just as barely tasteful but without the bikini? Are times really that hard for a girl who once proudly carried the UFC’s Octagonal round signs? Is this the kind of future Logan Stanton has to look forward to?
These are the questions we just don’t have answers for right now. What we do have, after the jump, are more pictures. Let’s call these kind of safe work, assuming the people you work with are cool with you looking at a woman’s ass in a thong. And if they aren’t, just quit right now. You deserve better.Read More DIGG THIS

AskMen.com released their Top 99 Women of 2009 list this morning, and sandwiched between "Paper Planes" rapper M.I.A. (#74) and Lost actress Yunjin Kim (#72) is the world’s best-looking mixed martial artist and former American Gladiator, Gina Carano. Hey, score one for the presence of our sport in mainstream media. "Conviction" earned her place on the annual list via a month-long voting period that saw over 10 million votes cast by readers, and her 73-spot puts her ahead of such well-known hotties as Elizabeth Banks, Sophie Monk, and Maria Sharapova. Here’s an excerpt from AskMen’s bio:
By now, you’re probably wondering who landed in the top ten. Well, get ready to start arguing:
1. Eva Mendes, actress and model
2. Megan Fox, actress
3. Marisa Miller, Victoria’s Secret model
4. Keeley Hazell, British model
5. Anne Hathaway, Golden Globe® Awards nominee actress
6. Alessandra Ambrosio, Brazilian model
7. Scarlett Johansson, newlywed and actress
8. Rihanna, GRAMMY® winning singer actress
9. Kristen Bell, screen actress
10. Kate Beckinsale, screen actress

Maybe Arianny Celeste released these stunning new photos in an attempt to steal back some of the MMA news attention that’s currently being heaped on Octagon Girl newcomer Logan Stanton — we’re not exactly sure where they came from — but at any rate, they started circulating the Internet last night, and we truly appreciate it; props to the UG and Fightlinker for the early finds. Caution: Those thumbnail pics are slightly more NSFW than the main pic, and therefore way more awesome. Enjoy responsibly.
Arianny Celeste (born November 12, 1985) has been a UFC Octagon Girl since 2006. Born and raised in Las Vegas, Arianny is of Mexican and Filipino descent. She has modeled professionally since the age of 15, and previously attended UNLV, where she majored in fitness management and nutrition. Among her many magazine appearances, Arianny Celeste was featured on the cover of the May 2010 issue of Maxim, and was featured in the November 2010 issue of Playboy. Besides her duties as a UFC ring girl, Arianny also hosts the UFC Ultimate Insider web series.Read More DIGG THIS

If you watched UFC 92 last month, you might have noticed someone new cruising around the cage. That petite brunette with the thousand-watt smile is Logan Stanton, a 20-year-old model from Niceville, Florida, who, contrary to Internet rumors, is not at all related to Arianny Celeste. She is, however, a longtime UFC fan and self-described “dork” who likes to scarf chocolate and play with beads. We gave Logan a ring before she flew off to Dublin for Saturday’s fights, and got the inside story on how she got the gig, what Octagon Girls do when they’re not on camera, and lots more…
CAGEPOTATO.COM: So first things first — Is Logan Stanton your real name?
LOGAN STANTON: Yeah. My sister named me. My parents thought I was going to be boy, and they just liked the name so well that they kept it for me. But I like it — it goes with my personality because I’m not a girly-girl, I’m kind of a tomboy.
How long have you been modeling?
My mom was pushing me to do this since I was about nine, but I’d never had any real interest until I turned 18. I decided I needed to get out of Niceville and do my own thing for a bit, so I came to Miami and was picked up by an agency. I’ve been down here modeling full-time since last January, going back and forth between Miami and L.A.
UFC fans have been buzzing about you ever since you made your Octagon Girl debut last month. How did you wind up getting hired by the UFC?
It was probably the most random thing that’s ever happened to me. The agency called me last month and told me to come by the office, and they were like “Have you ever heard of something called the UFC?” I said, “Are you kidding me, of course I’ve heard of it, I’ve been watching it forever.” I didn’t understand why, but the UFC wanted to meet with me, so they flew me out to Vegas, and I met with [UFC VP] Craig [Borsari] and Dana [White]. I told them, “honestly, I don’t know why I’m here — I don’t have big boobs, I’m not blonde,” and they said that’s not what they were looking for at all.
Then they explained to me what an Octagon Girl does. I’ve always watched the shows, and I’ve been dying to go to one ever since I started following it. It just sounded like a very cool opportunity. They said there was a fight [later that month], and if I was ready to go I could do that one. I needed a few days to let it sink in, so I went home for Christmas, and my friends and family got me all hyped up about it.
Is this going to be an ongoing gig, or did you only sign up for a certain amount of appearances?
Hopefully ongoing. I haven’t signed anything yet, so it’s hard to say. But I guess until I trip or something I’m here to stay. [laughs]
You were in front of an audience of over 14,000 people at UFC 92, with over a million more people watching at home. How did you deal with the nerves?Read More DIGG THIS

This is a tough one, Potato Nation. Fight! Magazine has narrowed down the finalists in their Fight! Girl of 2008 search, a Herculean feat in itself. Just imagine all the submissions, the photos, the ‘I love to laugh’ type personal statements they had to sort through to get to this point. But they’ve done it, God bless ‘em, and what they ended up with is twelve women in various states of undress vying for the coveted title and a pictorial spread in the magazine. Now they have to pick a winner.
That’s where you come in. You, with your impeccable taste in women, particularly two-dimensional women staring at you with come-hither eyes. It’s like your whole adult/adolescent life has been preparation for this moment. All you have to do is head over to the Fight! Girls page and make your pick.
Personally, I voted for Saralime up there. I’m not sure that’s even a real name, or if it’s supposed to be two words or what. But when you look like that, does it really matter? Your name could be Stapler and no one would care. Feel free to make your choice and then come back and tell me what an idiot I am. But if you choose Jaimie just because she’s wearing boxing gloves, well, you’re a sucker.Read More DIGG THIS
