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

Edith Labelle’s Latest ‘MMA Candy’ Video Features a Level of Boob-Grabbing That You Just Don’t Find in Other Jiu-Jitsu Instructionals


(Oh yes. Yes I can. / Props: MMACandy’s YouTube channel via MMAMania)

When it comes to jiu-jitsu instructional videos, former UFC ring girl Edith Labelle is the spoonful of sugar that makes the medicine go down. Earlier this year we gawked at her sexy kimura transitions for MMA Candy, and now the curvy Canuck is back with a new set of clips that straddle the line between grappling and groping. (“Groppling”?)

In the clip above, Edith demonstrates the half-guard shoulder roll, while her glorious breasts are rudely woman-handled by her training partner Angela. (0:55, 1:04, 1:45, and 1:53, you guys. See, I did the research for you.) By the way, that shoulder-roll thing is the most hilariously impractical transition I’ve seen outside of a Redneck Jiu Jitsu video…and yet I could watch this stuff all day.

After the jump: More from Edith’s latest shoot with MMA Candy, including a heel-hook from mount that looks like it was taken straight out of a Lexxi Tyler movie.

Ex-UFC Ring Girl Edith LaBelle Teaches Us Some Sexy Kimura Transitions [VIDEOS]

Since she was fired from UFC ring girl duty in 2009, Edith LaBelle has popped up here and there, in appearances as rare and glorious as Bigfoot sightings. Frankly, we miss the little knucklehead.

Luckily, the geniuses at MMA Candy — who previously brought us “this chick with the huge cans will teach you how to pass guard” and “why does that blonde girl have the gun from Predator?” — have gotten some quality time with the curvaceous French-Canadian. Watch as Edith and her lovely assistant take us through some kimura transitions that you can turn into finishing moves, as long as your partner isn’t putting up much of a fight.

Check out one more video after the jump, and follow Edith on twitter and Facebook.

Rumor: Chandella Powell Fired for Failure to Disclose Secret Past Life as a Softcore Porn Star


(Chandella as her alter ego Mariah Ashton.) 

Well ho-lee shit. It seems that if you do enough digging on any given ring girl, you will find out that she has done porn at one point in her life. According to a few unconfirmed sources from around the MMA blogosphere, it appears that Chandella Powell will be joining the ranks of Logan Stanton, Natasha Wicks, and Edith Labelle as a former UFC ring girl due to…get this…failing to disclose that she once appeared in a couple softcore porn photo shoots and videos under the name “Mariah Ashton.” What was originally passed off as a common bestiality flick was recently discovered to contain none other than the first ever African American UFC ring girl going “toe-to-toe” with another young starlet. How could you keep this from us, Carmen?

As we all know, Chandella was absent from the UFC’s FUEL TV debut last night, and hasn’t said a word on her Twitter account since Saturday. And since we also know that it is physically impossible for any woman, let alone a public figure, to ignore their Twitter for more than an hour or so, this can only mean that these rumors are unquestionably true. We are not going to provide links to any of the evidence against Ms. Powell, because if you haven’t searched the internet and found them yourself by this point I would be sorely disappointed, Potato Nation.

To give you some perspective on how to deal with this, join us after the jump to see how a few members of the CP staff coped with the heartbreaking news, via a string of emails.

One of our favorite online obsessions over the last month has been awesome people hanging out together, a tumblr photo blog devoted to celebrities mingling in unexpected combinations. (I mean, seriously: Dylan and Ali? Alice Cooper and Colonel Sanders? Epic.) Since there are aren’t any MMA fighters represented on the site, we decided to do some online crate-digging of our own and put together a CagePotato version of the “awesome people” photo-phenomenon. Enjoy these rare and classic MMA photos, which continue after the jump, and shoot us some links in the comments section if we’ve left out any of your favorites.

Reminder: UFC 124 Weigh-Ins Live Right Here at 4:00 pm ET

Just a reminder that we will have the live stream of the weigh-ins for tomorrow night’s UFC 124 event in Montreal today at 4:00 pm ET.

Tune in and see if Josh Koscheck tries to goad GSP into slapping him in the face with a glove or, if Stefan Shruve presents Sean McCorkle with a copy of the winning Photoshop contest entry or if Edith Labelle is being brought in from the stable for one last trot around the Octagon..

Whatever happens, the Canadian fans should make it very hard to hear what the hell Joe Rogan is screaming.

As always, the UFC media player is after the jump.

Hot Potato: ‘Girl Next Door,’ Holly Madison Steams Up UFC Magazine

(Photo courtesy UFC Magazine)

If you can bet past the fact that she is 90 percent man-made, that she likely had wrinkly sex with Hugh Hefner and that she is rumored to have had sex with Josh Koscheck, then "Girl Next Door," Holly Madison’s photo spread in the latest issue of the UFC Magazine will likely appeal to you. 

After the jump are a few outtakes from the shoot, featuring the onetime UFC ring card girl who some say signed Edith LaBelle’s Octagon death warrant.

Edith Labelle Says She Was Fired For Being “Sick,” Not Hungover

Edith Labelle UFC ring girl
(If you’re feeling a sudden urge to put some money on the dresser, that’s no accident.)

Anyone who’s ever called in to work after a night of hard drinking knows that when you’re in that pitiful, vomiting state on the bathroom floor at six a.m., the line between hungover and sick is severely blurred, as is your entire field of vision.  That’s why, particularly if you call in sick the morning after Super Bowl Sunday or St. Patrick’s Day, everyone knows exactly what kind of sick you really are.  But former UFC Octagon girl Edith Labelle says she really was legitimately sick for UFC 100, and substance abuse had nothing to do with her missing the event.  Either the UFC didn’t believe her or didn’t care, because they canned her anyway:

"After the UFC Expo and weigh-ins [at UFC 100], I went to dinner," she said. "Then I attended some of the pre-parties with some of the UFC management, some of the Octagon girls, some of the fighters. And then I started to feel ill — I wasn’t feeling good. So I decided to go to bed. I really wanted to be in good shape for the next day, obviously. Then I started to feel worse throughout the night and the next day.
