Hot Fighter Alert: 14 Photos of Lia Mata’afa, Rumored TUF 18 Castmember


(Click all images for larger versions.)

Yesterday, Dave Melzter released a rumored list of the 16 female fighters selected for the upcoming co-ed season of The Ultimate Fighter. Though the cast list hasn’t been confirmed by the UFC or FOX, it includes such well-known veterans as Tara LaRosaShayna Baszler, Tonya Evinger, Roxanne Modafferi, and up-and-coming talent like Jessamyn Duke, Colleen Schneider, and Raquel Pennington.

One name stuck out for a different reason — Lia Mata’afa, the only fighter on the list with a 0-0 professional record. So why would TUF bring on a fighter with no professional experience? Well, as the UG informs us, she happens to be really attractive.

But make no mistake: Mata’afa is a freak athlete with a ton of potential. In addition to her 4-1 amateur MMA record, Lia was a two-time girls State wrestling champion in her native Hawaii, and according to the Meltzer report she played varsity rugby at Boston University and is currently a member of the American Samoa national rugby team. She is Kendall Grove‘s sister-in-law, and a product of Chris Leben’s Ultimate Fight School in Honolulu.

We’ve gathered a few of our favorite Lia Mata’afa photos for your consideration — which continue after the jump — along with a video of her MMA debut. Visit Lia’s Facebook page for more.

Hot Fighter Alert: NFL Cheerleader Turned MMA Prospect Rachel Wray


(Image via Rachel’s Facebook page. Click for full-size version.)

Rachel Wray‘s unlikely transition from NFL eye-candy to aspiring cage-fighter started with a fateful trip to a boxing gym. As she explained to KCMMA:

I have been a cheerleader or dancer my whole life and I moved [to Kansas City] from Arkansas to cheer for the Kansas City Chiefs. I started working out at Title Boxing Club with some of the girls for an alternative workout. I really enjoyed it and started taking private lessons after a little while. One day, I came in and they wanted me to spar. I was nervous about someone actually punching me in the face, but I did it.

I was absolutely horrible. This drove me to want it even more. I knew I had to make a choice between fighting and cheerleading. I chose fighting. I trained harder and took more private lessons. In the same shopping center was [Jason High and LC Davis's gym] HDMMA and I wandered in there to see what was going on. Everyone was so nice and just not what I expected from a MMA gym. So, I started training there too. One thing led to another, and now I feel comfortable enough to compete in the cage…I hope to fight 4-5 times over the next year.”

Though Rachel’s last scheduled match didn’t take place due to her opponent not showing up — gotta love regional MMA! — she won her amateur debut by second-round TKO. (You can watch it here and here.) Rachel’s next fight is slated for January 25th at Harrah’s Casino in Kansas City, against an opponent to be named later.

A 5’1 ball of solid muscle, Rin Nakai isn’t the first woman you’d expect to become an MMA sex symbol. And yet Nakai has become an object of fetishistic interest in her native Japan due to the risqué photos that she regularly posts to her blog. The 24-year-old judoka has racked up a 10-0-1 professional record (seven wins via stoppage) as a 145-pounder, competing in Pancrase, Smackgirl, and Valkyrie, and was crowned the Valkyrie Open Weight Women’s Tournament champion last November. Check out our gallery of Rin Nakai photos below, and let us know in the comments section — would you or wouldn’t you?

Victory Fighting Championships 35 goes down tomorrow night at the Mid-America Center in Council Bluffs, featuring Abe Wagner, Joe Ellenberger, and a rising women’s MMA prospect named Sarah McLeod. (Thanks to BabesofMMA for the tip.) A native of Vancouver, Sarah has compiled a 3-2-1 record as an amateur, and will be facing New Hampshire-based fighter Heather Lambert (3-0).

Though Sarah started her fight career without any formal training, she has been honing her skills at Mid-America Martial Arts in Omaha since the beginning of the year, and is looking to build on her current two-fight win streak.

Also, and not that this is important or anything, but Sarah McLeod just happens to be a model and bikini competitor in her spare time. She is “always” single, and loves a good mullet. Follow ‘TNT’ on Facebook, and check out some more of her photos below…
