Gentlemen, Rejoice: Brittney Palmer is Back!


(Oh Brittney, how we’ve missed you.)

In what is easily the greatest decision the UFC has ever made, our 2011 Hottest Woman in MMA winner, Brittney Palmer, has been brought back to the UFC. How you ask? Well, as we all know, Ms. Palmer stepped out of the limelight last year to pursue an art career, and had already completed a summer semester at an anonymous California based art school. And though her work was pretty damn impressive, Brittney clearly came to revelation that you don’t need to produce art, when you are art. And I would like to take this moment to speak on behalf of the general population and thank her for said revalation.

All kidding aside, it turns out the reason for her return began when just a few hours ago, Dana White sent out the following tweet:

Wednesday Morning MMA Link Club: Brock Lesnar Massacres His Enemies, Chael Sonnen Will Comfort Your Wife, ‘UFC on FOX’ Will Lose Money + More

“Let me ask you something: when you have a big project or plans for a big goal, do you let yourself get derailed by a whiny coworker that always finds an excuse to shovel work on someone else? NO! You do your work, you beat your obligations senseless, you shine like a pagan sun god, you make that whiny prat look foolish, you take their job, you laugh as they leave with a box of their effects, and you comfort their obviously unsatisfied wife by taking her out to dinner. I’m not cooling my heels just because Anderson’s are kicked up on the sofa.”

- Despite Large Audience Expectations, UFC on FOX Debut Will Be Money Loser for UFC (MMAFighting)
“It’s an investment in the company,” Dana White recently said. “In no way, shape or form do we come anywhere close to making our money back. You don’t go on free television and make your money. That’s just not how it works. We’re going to get smashed on this fight, but it’s an investment in the future of the business.”

“Kazushi Sakuraba and Wanderlei Silva fought against one another on three separate occasions in fights that should have never happened. The Japanese great never made it to the final bell against the heavy-handed striker in Silva. In the end, Silva was always the victor at the expense of Sakuraba, who always left their outings a bludgeoned mess, resulting in some of the worst performances of his career.”

“For two years I had to lie to myself and all of my fans. I had to get up every morning and say, ‘you feel good today,’ and I didn’t. I had the surgery, it’s out of my life and I’m back and that’s a damn good feeling for me and it’s bad for everybody else.”

Hot Potato: Brittney Palmer Returns in ‘Fitness Gurls’ Magazine [PHOTOS]

(Six more photos are in the gallery after the jump.)

We haven’t seen much from 2011 Hottest Women in MMA Grand Prix winner Brittney Palmer since she mysteriously disappeared from the UFC Octagon Girl rotation earlier this year. But according to a new feature in Fitness Gurls magazine — no, we’ve never heard of it either — Brittney is happily living and surfing in California, and recently finished a summer semester at art school. She tells FG about her art aspirations and new clothing line, and then there’s this little bit:

Q: I hear you’re coming back to the UFC one day, is that true?
A: I never left the UFC. Haha. UFC and I…I’ve been with the company for a really long time and we have a great relationship. I moved here and wanted to focus on art and they wanted to go in another direction for ring girls so it kinda happened at a good time. But it was never a situation of letting me go or me quitting. So the rumormill flies, but I’m still with the company…just taking a little time off to focus on art.

More photos from Brittney’s Fitness Gurls cover shoot are below; visit fitnessgurls.com for more, and show Ms. Palmer some love @brittneypalmer.

Wednesday MMA Link Club: Brittney Palmer’s Empire, Awful Rematches, and Nick Diaz’s Title Shot


(Former UFC Octagon Girl Brittney Palmer shows off her work, shares her plans for an “art empire.” Props: MMA30tv)

Some selected highlights from our friends around the MMA blogosphere…

Dana White: If Victorious Over BJ Penn, Nick Diaz Will Get a Title Shot (LowKick)
“I expect nothing from him (at the press conferences). I expect him to be sitting right here in this chair. He doesn’t have to answer one question if he doesn’t want to. I just want him to sit there and then get up and do the (staredown). Just show up man. He’s probably going to flip everybody off and do all this other stuff – its Nick Diaz. I don’t want him to not be Nick Diaz, I just need him to show up.”

10 MMA Rematches That Should Have Never Happened (BleacherReport/MMA)
“Chael Sonnen vs. Anderson Silva and the recently concluded Gray Maynard vs. Frankie Edgar trilogy are both examples of what a warranted do-over should look like…Then, there are other bouts where a decisive ending merits no speedy return for the two fighters to be joined together again inside the cage.”

‘King’ Mo Lawal Talks ‘Rampage’ Jackson: We’re Going to Fight Eventually (MMA Fighting)
“This fool Rampage calls me out, and then people get mad when I respond? He’s a b—h in my eyes, because he didn’t respond. Maybe he’ll respond later, but the word is he wants to fight [Mauricio] ‘Shogun’ [Rua]. That’s whatever.”

A Moment of Silence for Brittney

Brittney: if you’re thinking of hurting yourself, call us. We insist.

We didn’t really think much of it when a rumor started going around that Brittney Palmer was on her way out of the UFC.  There were some vague Twitter messages of bad luck, and Dana gave her some flack over screwing up which network was broadcasting UFC Live, but surely he wouldn’t just toss her, right?

Well, kids, no official announcement has been made, but we don’t really expect one either.  Brittney Palmer is no longer listed as an Octagon Girl.  If it turns out that Anonymous did this, we’ll never forgive them.  Until then, we’ll mourn for our favorite Octagon Girl (except Ben;  he’ll never get over Arianny).

We wish Ms Palmer well in her future, which is suddenly more open for her to concentrate more on her art interests. Come on inside for one more collection of Brittney’s greatest hits, and leave your tearful comments.

Thanks to Tracy Lee/Combat Lifestyle, Omar Gomez Photography, Fighters Only magazine, and any other photographers who we will identify later when they send us a salty email.

** UPDATE ** Brittney’s portrait has mysteriously reappeared on the UFC site, so take from that what you will. No official word about her employment status has been had, but if we see her at the next show, we’ll call it a win. (They still haven’t fixed Chandella’s age, though.)

And so, the winner of 2011′s Hottest Women in MMA Grand Prix, taking a full 77.4% of the popular vote in the finals, is…
