The 12 Greatest Ring Girls in UFC History, Ranked

When ranking the greatest UFC ring girls of all time, four criteria must be considered: looks, personality, longevity, and whether or not they ever posed nude for Playboy. (That last one is probably the most important.) So in honor of the UFC’s 20th anniversary, we decided to pay tribute to the unsung heroines of the Octagon, who bravely circle the cage in booty-shorts to remind drunken fans what round it is. Disagree with our list? Then let us know in the comments section, tough guy.

#12 & #11 (tie): Chrissy Blair and Vanessa Hanson

Chrissy and Vanessa both made their UFC ring girl debuts in 2011 after winning contests put on by Transworld, and were officially added to the Octagon Girl rotation earlier this year following a stint in Strikeforce. They’re kind of a package deal, and we can’t decide which one is more attractive, so we’ll let them share the leadoff spots on this list. (Honestly, the Betty and Veronica thing will never go out of style.) Chrissy and Vanessa were most recently seen earlier this month, supporting the troops.

For further viewing:
- Golden goddess
- The artsy black and white shot
- Long tall Chrissy
- She really ties the room together
- Coming undone
- A woman in uniform
- Strikeforce’s dynamic duo

As you’re well aware, CagePotato is a passionate supporter of professional hot chicks. But instead of throwing another photo gallery at you this week, we thought we’d switch it up and pay tribute to the best MMA ring girl videos we’ve ever come across. If we’ve left out one of your favorites, please post a link in the comments section. Enjoy…

#11: Rachelle Leah Gets Surprised in Her Hotel Room

Gratuitous semi-nudity is the best kind of semi-nudity. Damn, nice abs.

#10: Ali Sonoma and Arianny Celeste Shoot for Muscle Pharm

Ali Sonoma is another UFC Octagon Girl Hall of Famer, and she’s never looked better than in this clip. When you see the photographer start to drone on and on, just skip to 2:37 for more Ali.


Jardine Watch: ‘Dean of Mean’ Returns Against Francisco France Next Month in Dominican Republic

When you’re on a five-fight losing streak like former UFC light-heavyweight contender Keith Jardine, there’s two ways you can approach your situation. 1) You can take a few months off to completely re-assess your skills, weaknesses, and motivation. Or, 2) You can get back in the cage as soon as possible in a desperate attempt to wash off the stink of failure. The Dean of Mean, God help him, is going for option two.

Just two months after his demoralizing loss to Trevor Prangley at Shark Fights 13, Keith Jardine will take on Francisco "Kiko" France in the main event of "MMA Global Invasion," which will be held November 13 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. (Props to MMAFighting for the heads-up.) France is a 6-1 light-heavyweight who has claimed all of his victories by submission, including four by arm-triangle choke. He’s competed for various organizations in Missouri and Mississippi; most notably, he appeared on the undercard of Strikeforce: Heavy Artillery, where he finished Lee Brousseau by first-round rear-naked choke.

Ali Sonoma hasn’t been employed as a UFC ring girl since late 2007, but for some reason whenever this woman puts on a bikini, we still care deeply. MMA Fight Girls passes along a couple highlights from a recent GW Burns photo workshop that Ali participated in, which we’ve posted above along with a couple of recent additions to her ModelMayhem profile. Enjoy responsibly.

Ali Sonoma (born March 9, 1985) is a former UFC Octagon Girl who worked for the promotion from 2006-2007.

During her time with the UFC, she dated fighter Diego Sanchez. Ali Sonoma was a contestant on ABC’s The Mole following her exit from the UFC. She currently lives in Miami, where she continues to model profesisonally. She has been featured in Maxim, Muscle & Fitness, and Playboy, among other magazines.

In our continuing effort to help you procure the services of UFC ring girls, we’d like to direct your attention to Club Supershoot, a Colorado-based company that teaches aspiring photographers the art and science of shooting hot chicks. During their SuperShoot workshops, they bring in semi-famous models for their students to photograph; in April, they hosted fine-as-hell Playboy model Carlotta Champagne, and next month they’re pleased to present former Octagon Girl Ali Sonoma:

Ali will shoot Casual, Fashion, Glamour, Swimwear, Lingerie and Implied Nude!! The shoot is broken into two days, she will be shooting fashion/glamour, all the way to implied nude!! Pending the weather, we may go to the mountains for it. Ali doesn’t have any mountain photos and YOU could be the one that takes a photo she puts up. Having Ali in your port will for sure move you up in the glamour world, hell, I’M EXCITED TO SHOOT HER!! Go to to register.

Being a part of the full two-day shoot on October 3rd and 4th will set you back $449.95, but you can commit to just one day for $325.95. So if you’re a big Ali fan and don’t mind traveling to Colorado, here’s your chance to get up close and personal. I guess some photography experience is also a prerequisite, but you could always pretend that you’re an eccentric artist who will only shoot with a Canon Powershot. Now we just have to find out what Arianny Celeste and Logan Stanton will do for $400. Our guesses: Bikini boat companionship and babysitting.

(Props to MMA Fight Girls for the tip!)


Ali Sonoma is a (Bikini Contest) Winner!

(Ali Sonoma and some other chick.  Photo courtesy of

Former UFC Octagon girl and Diego Sanchez-lover Ali Sonoma won the overall Arnold Amateur NPC Bikini Championship in Columbus, Ohio this week.  Apparently the women’s class was broken into two divisions: tall and short.  Simple enough, right?  Ali won the tall division (the woman who won the short one is standing next to her in the above picture, clearly envying Ali’s height), but also won the overall honors.  

Good thing, because judging from that picture she basically lived in a tanning bed for the last few weeks.  At least she didn’t go overboard, like some other people

Looks like times aren’t so hard for Ali after all, even if we’re still baffled by those pictures of her on the weird porn site.  Which we totally only looked at for research…um…professional purposes.  Try explaining that when your mom walks in, though.  Seriously, it was really uncomfortable and our relationship hasn’t been the same since.  But congratulations, Ali.


Ali Sonoma is Also Willing to Show Off Some Skin

(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.


The 10 Hottest Ring Girls in MMA

Though CagePotato launched in October 2007 with the tagline “MMA News, Gossip, and Girls,” lately our site has become “MMA News, Videos, The Occasional Insightful Interview, Videos, and Videos.” And we’re totally cool with that, but it’s good to revisit our scummy roots once in a while. Thus, we present our official list of the ten sexiest women to ever walk around cages while holding numbered cards. Feel free to debate the order in our comments section, but your arguments will most likely fall on deaf ears.

10. Christie Cartwright (WEC)

9. Rebecca Love (WFA, WEC)

8. Edith Labelle (UFC)

7. Laura Jones (Cage Rage)

6. Rachelle Leah (UFC)

Now that that’s out of the way, here are the best of the best…


Happy Valentines Day!

Hot Potatoes: Ali Sonoma and the Revolution


MMA Fight Girls came across this new photo of Ali Sonoma — looking hotter than ever — on the website of “boudoir” photographer Michael Rosen. Head to Rosen’s site for more sexy (and strange) stuff.

We’d also like to give MMA Fight Girls props for uncovering an ass-tastic set of ring girl photos (via the Bodog Blog) from the Extreme Fighting Challenge 5: Revolution event, which took place last November in Prince George, British Columbia, Canada. Shocking highlights after the jump.
