Hot Potato: Photos of the UFC’s New, Filipina Ring Girl, Red Dela Cruz

Yesterday’s Fight Night 66 media day workouts was a landmark occasion for a variety of reasons. Not only did it kick off the UFC’s first ever trip to the Philippines ahead of this weekend’s fight between Frankie Edgar and Urijah Faber — which is being hailed as “the closest thing to a superfight we’ve had in some time” (!!!!) — but it also set the stage for the UFC to introduce its first-ever Filipina ring girl. Please, try and contain your excitement.

That ring girl was none other than Red Dela Cruz, a popular Filipina model and PXC ring girl who was chosen from a pool of a couple hundred applicants as part of the UFC’s Asia Ring Girl search. A monumental occasion, indeed. In any case, check out our favorite photos (plus a bonus video) of Ms. Cruz after the jump, and make sure to follow her on Instagram and Twitter.

Hot Potato: 14 Photos of Full Contact Contender Ring Girl Jessica Adele


(Props: Babes of MMA)

You know, when there’s not much to talk about in the MMA world, we love that we have the artistic freedom to shamelessly promote the oft-underappreciated brand ambassadors of the sport. We’re talking about ring girls, of course, aka the select group of people that Ronda Rousey hates with every fiber of her being.

Maybe it’s just me, but I simply cannot look at someone like UK-based card carrier Jessica Adele up there and react with negativity or hatred (though I’m sure many of you taters will be able to drum some up for me). Ms. Adele has been busting her hump(s) for various MMA and kickboxing organizations over the past years — most notably Full Contact Contender — and while she may not put in the “work” of a Rousey or even a Tate, she still works, dammit, and isn’t that enough?

Anyways, check out 14 of our favorite photos of Jessica after the jump, and make sure to support your local ring girls by voting yes on Prop 13.

Hot Potato: 17 Photos of Total Full Contact Ring Girl Kayla Lou

Kayla Lou is a 23 year-old British beauty who has been carrying the cards at muay Thai, K1 kickboxing, and boxing events over at Total Full Contact for a few years now (one can only imagine how many times the name of that promotion has been used as a pun to hit on her). A model since 2009, Kayla has scored promotional gigs for WWE America, Sunday Sports and Monster Energy, and is also a Playboy Miss Social contestant. When she’s not strutting her stuff in the octagon, this mother of one has actually been setting up a promotion called G-Man Promotions, which will hold its first MMA and K1 Kickboxing mixed event in March.

Check out our favorite photos of Ms. Lou in the gallery after the jump, and make sure to follow her on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.

Props to Babes of MMA for the tip.

Hot Potato: 15 Photos of STACKED MMANitro Ring Girl Allira Cohrs


(Props be to BabesofMMA, per usual.)

Meet Allira Cohrs, a NitroMMA ring girl, model/presenter, and self-described “hippie at heart” (translation: Nick Diaz fan) who was recently voted the 53rd sexiest girl in the entire freaking world by FHM readers. According to her website, this Australian smokeshow is also a qualified personal fitness trainer who spends her free time on the mats over at Gracie Elite and watching UFC events with her family. Her likes include red wine and Boxing (presumably not at the same time), and her dislikes include Spiders & Blue Cheese, which sounds like an absolutely terrifying culinary experience.

Check out 15 of our favorite photos of Allira in the gallery after the jump, and make sure to follow her on Twitter and Instagram.

Once again, a major round of applause is in order for BabesofMMA, who introduced us to Jessica “Anything But a Horror” Storie, a Warrior Nation ring girl and Playboy’s “Miss Social August 2013″ hailing from Dalton, Massachusetts.

According to her Model Mayhem page, Jessica is a creative-minded singer/songwriter currently using her hotness to pay her way through college. She also appears to be an absolute master of the selfie. It’s the American dream fully realized, folks, except for the part about her not being willing to do nudes. :(

Hot Potatoes: Meet the UFC’s Newest Latin American Ring Girls [20 Photos]

Earlier this week, the UFC announced that, in addition to their ever-growing roster of octagon girls in the United States, Brazil, the United Kingdom, Asia, and Australia, 2009 Miss Earth contestant Jamillette Gaxiola and Costa Rican model Betzy Montero will be signing on as the UFC’s official Latin American ring girls. This is no doubt meant to tie in with the upcoming season of TUF Latin America and UFC 180, which will mark the UFC’s first ever trip to Mexico, as well as the promotion’s plans to visit Puerto Rico in 2015. When reached for comment about the new ring girls, Fabricio Werdum was strangely silent.

More octagon girls is something we can always get behind (Hiyo!), so check out our favorite photos of Jamillette and Betzy in the gallery after the jump.
