Natasha Wicks Proves That a Job as an Octagon Girl Isn’t a Golden Ticket, After All

If you’re anything like us, you’ve probably spent more time than you’re comfortable with imagining the glamorous life of a UFC Octagon girl.  In our minds it involves a lot of sitting around at Vegas hotel pools, fending off awkward advances from Mike Goldberg, and taking pictures of yourself with your cell phone.  A charmed life, indeed.  But judging by Ariel Helwani’s interview with Natasha Wicks, the newest addition to the UFC’s stable of professional hot chicks, it’s more like a part-time job among other part-time jobs.  In addition to filling Edith Labelle’s empty seat at UFC events, Wicks says she also works as a go-go dancer at the Wynn and as a caddy for local golf courses:

You actually caddy for golfers?
Yeah. I’m not just sitting in the cart like, ‘Hee hee.’ I actually do my job.

Do you suggest what kind of clubs they should use?
Yeah, sometimes. I’m not the best. I’m actually really bad at golf. It’s like the one thing I can’t pick up. I can pretty much pick up anything. Usually if I try something, I’m usually extremely competitive, and I like to try new things. But golf for some reason, for me, it’s just like I have goofy arm or something. I feel awkward-looking. I’m just impressed when people hit it. I’m like, ‘Wow, good job!’ So I’m probably even a better caddy, just because every time they even just hit the ball, I’m so impressed.

That’s right, she doesn’t just sit there and say ‘Hee hee.’  She sits there and says ‘Wow, good job.’  She wouldn’t expect a non-caddy like you to appreciate the distinction.

As we suspected when the UFC released photos of their first shoot with her, they did insist that she exchange her wild, untamed look for a more boring, polished one, only Natasha says they justified it by telling her that her unruly curls might not look good in an HD broadcast.  If Clay Guida can get away with it, at least in non-video game form, we don’t see why an Octagon girl can’t.  Plus, it gives her a little edge and adds some variety.  Just try and tell us that this:


Isn’t, in a creepy, makes-you-feel-like-a-pedophile kind of way, much sexier than this:

Shave her head and I'd still marry her.

Gotta love the haters (NECROPHYTE, Terminator), never had a girl under two-hundy or w/o facial hair in their life, trying to make themselves feel less pathetic by baggin on such a beautiful thing.

UFC did an amazing job of turning a beautiful, unique girl into a cookie cutter of your average blond bimbo.

Keep the curls!
TheVoiceOfReason- August 26, 2009 at 11:27 am
They took a hot, unique looking chick and made her dull. ZZZzzzzz

I wasn't sure about the bed-head curls before, but I am now... they were WAY better.
CJ- August 26, 2009 at 10:53 am

@ Drummer
Sorry bro. Didn't mean to trick you with my wishful thinking.

The second pic looks like it was taken by social services just before the police slapped cuffs on her daddy.

Do a CP poll. Curls or No Curls. Make it happen Bens.

Well after following Arianny on Twitter I can say that the life of an octagon girl is mostly boring and complaining about working out... and bikinis.
