Hot Fighter Alert: 11 Photos of WMMA Rising Star Cassie Crisano


(Photo courtesy of Cassie’s Facebook page; click for full-size version. Full gallery is after the jump.)

Props to BabesofMMA for introducing us to Cassie Crisano, a 3-1 amateur MMA fighter from Middletown, New York, who will be making her professional debut this Saturday against Janice Meyer at Cage Fury Fighting Championships 17 in Dover, Delaware. The fight will be streamed live on CFFC.tv.

Like Miesha Tate before her, Cassie took to wrestling early in life, competing among the boys on her high school varsity team. Her competitive accomplishments included finishing second at the first Women’s National Wrestling tournament in Albuquerque, and becoming the 138-pound New York State women’s champion. After a long recovery from a near-fatal auto accident in 2002, Cassie began training in MMA four years ago, and made her amateur MMA debut in December 2010.

In her own words: “The problem with women in MMA is that there are just not enough of us to be able to take it to the next level as the men. There are too many women that want to be classified as ‘A FIGHTER’ but the skill level of being a well-rounded fighter is just not there. The talent pool is just not big enough yet. So when a one-trick pony pops up from out of nowhere they become a rising star which ultimately in the end makes women’s MMA look like it’s a joke.”

No offense, Ronda? Get to know Cassie better on Facebook and Twitter, and check out more of our favorite Cassie Crisano photos in the gallery below…

[VIDEO] This CFA Ring Girl Shoot Will Make You Forget That the UFC is a Thing

Being that I own a computer and all, I find that calendars sit very low on the “Things I Desperately Need to Purchase” list whenever I manage to escape my man cave and venture into the human world. That said, I may just have to put off purchasing that Bosch 1274DVS 3 x 21 in. Variable Speed Belt Sander the next time I make a trip to the local mini-mall, because not only do octagon girls Brittney Palmer and Arianny Celeste have some damn fine looking calendars in store for us, but apparently so do the girls from Championship Fighting Alliance.

We know what you’re thinking: “I’ve never heard of CFA before; will that impede my ability to enjoy the calendar shoot you’ve placed before me?” Well that depends; Do you have to own a Shake Weight to enjoy the commercials? That’s what we thought, so enjoy the video and keep up on all the CFA ring girl happenings over at their official website.

Hot Potato: 14 Photos of ‘TUF Smashes’ Ring Girl Kahili Blundell

Since you can’t have one without the other, we proudly present Australian model Kahili Blundell, the other half of the UFC’s new “Smashes” ring girl duo. The 23-year-old blonde from Sydney was named RALPH Australian Swimwear Model of the Year 2011, spent two years cheerleading in the Australian National Rugby League, and hustles on the side as a certified make up and spray-tan artist. To our knowledge, she isn’t dating a UFC fighter like her co-worker is. Check out more of our favorite Kahili Blundell photos in the gallery below, and if you like what you see, follow her on Twitter @Kahili_Blundell.

Hot Potato: 16 Photos of ‘TUF Smashes’ Ring Girl Kristie Jane McKeon

Fightlinker gives us the heads-up that Australian models Kahili Blundell and Kristie Jane McKeon have been hired as ring girls for the UFC’s upcoming Australia vs. U.K. season of The Ultimate Fighter (aka “The Smashes“). As it turns out, Kristie McKeon is the girlfriend of Smashes coach Ross Pearson, which means that on-set hooting directed at the blonde fitness instructor will probably be kept to a minimum.

In honor of Pearson’s impressive accomplishment, we’ve rounded up 16 great photos of Kristie, which you can check out in the gallery after the jump. If you like what you see, follow Kristie on twitter for more. The Smashes debuts this Wednesday on FX Australia and ESPN UK.

Mondays Suck, So Here’s Arianny Celeste in Various States of Undress [VIDEO]

No, I did not alter the title of this photo.
(“OK, Ms. Celeste, we want this calendar to reflect both your future and your past, which is why I’m going to need you to kick in the window of that Ferrari for this next shot.”)

Allow me to take you through my thought process whilst attempting to determine a worthy enough post this morning:

OK, Jared, another weekend, another dead hooker in the trunk, but that’s not important, you must focus on an MMA-related topic for the time being…let’s see here, Nick Ring has his next fight booked against Constantinos Philippou at UFC 154, but no one cares about that………dammit, Latisha, you just had to threaten to call Big Ron again, didn’t you?! Focus, focus…uh…Marloes Coenen said Ronda Rousey has “no balls”…I suppose that is true, but not really newsworthy, because bitches be crazy, right Latisha? *attempts high five, receives no response*….think Jared, what would the Potato Nation like to start their Monday off with? *looks over to Latisha once again*…TITS. Of course, it’s so obvious! Time to break out the lime, I mean computer, and get started!

So while it may not be all that significant that a behind-the-scenes video of Arianny Celeste’s 2013 Calendar shoot was recently released online, please trust that this is probably the most captivating bit of news you could come across this morning given the options at hand. So just shut up and enjoy Ms. Celeste rocking no shirt like only she can.

Hot Potato: 18 Photos of ‘MMA Candy’ Model/Instructor Katie DeLuca


(Payback time!)

Katie DeLuca is a 23-year-old professional model from South Florida who has appeared as a fighter interviewer, grappling instructor, and all-around hot-chick for MMACandy.com. Katie was recently named a Maxim Hometown Hotties 2013 semi-finalist, and is currently studying for a Masters of Economics degree. Discussing her jiu-jitsu training with Muze Magazine, she said:

Jiu Jitsu is a great workout and requires a lot of dexterity and strength. I know its not your conventional yoga or spinning class, but for aerobic and anaerobic training, there’s nothing like it. I always loved watching the UFC fights and all the action that goes with it, but its really different when you’re the one on the mat; it’s not as easy as it looks and I have a lot more respect for the fighters and the technique that goes into what they do…My friend Jessica Aguilar is also a really great fighter and that girl is #8-ranked pound-for-pound fighter in the world…[but] you would never catch me trying to roll with these girls, they are tough!

Former UFC Octagon Girl Natasha Wicks Parties Topless At Cancer Fundraiser

The good news is that we’ve got topless photos of Natasha Wicks for you. The better news is that since she sorta went the topless/body paint route in order to support an organization that helps people with cancer, so you don’t have to feel like a complete creep for checking these out on a Sunday morning.

It Ain’t Chemo “provides cancer patients with comfort and care supplies, advice and emotional support,” according to its website. It was founded by a firefighter and cancer survivor named Kevin Hoyt and enlists the help of celebrity endorsers like Wicks and athletes like Ryan Couture to raise awareness of its organization.

The idea behind the organization’s name and tagline is that we should remember those that are struggling more than we are. Ie. Had a crappy week at work? Well, at least it ain’t chemo therapy. They sell some dope apparel on their site to raise money for their services. Check them out.

Also feel free to check out photos of Wicks wearing very little other than some It Ain’t Chemo-themed body paint at a recent fundraiser party after the jump.

21 MMA Ring Girls Who Have Posed Nude: A NSFW Celebration


(Nice try, Kelli. The sign out front clearly says “NO HAND BRA.”)

Since it’s been a relatively slow news week, we figured it was time to put together a gallery that’s been on our to-do list for some time — a definitive collection of every notable MMA ring girl who has posed nude. And we don’t mean that “implied nude“ bullshit, or that cutesy rear-view-only stuff. We mean fully naked, with boobies and everything. Use the “next page” links or the links below to navigate through the gallery, and keep in mind that the NSFW photos will be linked off of those landing pages, to further guard against embarrassing misunderstandings at work.
