20 Minutes Alone With MMA Ring Girl Corissa Furr

It’s not every day you get twenty minutes alone with a professional model, so when you get the opportunity, you make damn well sure you spend your time wisely. That’s exactly what I did earlier this week when I interviewed former Strikeforce ring card girl, Corissa Furr. You’ve probably seen her on Entourage, MANswers or gracing the pages of FHM and Maxim. Most recently, she hosted an ‘MTV Cribs’-esque segment on The Ultimate Insider when she took you through the luxurious home of UFC welterweight Josh Koscheck. We discussed her favorite fighter, women’s MMA, and the lamest thing to be shouted at her while cage side. Enjoy the interview and the new pics Corissa sent us. Thanks for taking the time out of your busy schedule to talk with me. First things first, how in the world does a smart girl from small town Maryland find herself parading around a cage in a bikini while holding up a round card for money?

Corissa Furr: I don’t know. You know, it’s not something I ever thought was going to happen. I was never one of those girls who was like, you know, “I wanna be a model.” I kind of got into it accidentally. My roommate at the time was doing a photo shoot and then the photographer was like, “Let me take some head shots of you.” And that was the beginning of it I guess. I started traveling for different companies, doing tours nationwide and I’ve always been a fan of MMA and boxing and stuff like that so when opportunities came my way, of course I took advantage of them. Who wouldn’t want to be sitting cage side watching the fights and getting paid?

CP: What’s the lamest thing a guy has yelled out at you while you’re up there holding cards?

Hottest Women in MMA Grand Prix bracket final

Congrats, Juju, and may your Cinderella story have a happy ending.

Now, the usual instructions. With the help of the photographic aids we’ve provided below, cast your vote for your favorite lady in each of the four polls; hit the “next page” link when you’re done with each one. Any questions, let us know in the comments section. If you don’t see the poll widget under each pairing of girls, please refresh your browser, or try a different one.

We plan to announce the complete list of winners from the Grand Prix’s opening round on Tuesday, so if you haven’t yet cast a vote for Pool A, there’s still time to make a difference. Without further ado, let’s get started…


Announcing’s 2011 Hottest Women in MMA Grand Prix!

It’s been over a year since we last gathered together our favorite MMA ring girls, female fighters, models, and TV hosts for an all-encompassing ranking of hotness. Since then, we’ve been introduced to many more beautiful women — while a few of the ladies we previously featured have slipped off our radars.

This year, we decided to leave the rankings in your hands. We’ve constructed a 16-seed bracket featuring 15 of our favorite MMA girls, and one “Wild Card.” (Think of it as a three-way play-in for the last spot. It’ll all make sense soon.) You can check out the opening bracket after the jump. Despite our great admiration for them, we’ve left out some women who don’t currently have an official connection to MMA — Rachelle Leah, Amber Nichole Miller, and Natasha Wicks, to name a few.

Voting for Pool A begins this Wednesday, and voting for Pool B begins this Friday. We’ll announce the round-of-16 results and kick off the quarterfinals next week. After that…well, we really haven’t thought that far ahead. But keep your eye on the site, and help us crown 2011′s Hottest Woman in MMA. Get excited, Potato Nation!
