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!

Jade Bryce is a 26-year-old model from Austin, Texas, who has been recruited as a ring girl for Bellator’s fourth season. At 5’3″, Jade describes herself as a “travel size model,” but there’s a big heart in that compact frame — she donates part of her modeling income to the socially conscious non-profit organizations CRASH and Invisible Children. You can get to know Jade better on Facebook, her Model Mayhem page, and her modeling blog. Lots more pics of Jade Bryce are after the jump — including a lovely set of NSFW images that we’ve placed on a separate page for your safety.

Good news, perverts: Playboy legend Holly Madison will be taking another lap around the Octagon on New Year’s Day. has revealed that the Girls Next Door/Holly’s World star will be returning as a guest Octagon Girl at UFC 125, for the first time since her head-turning appearance at UFC 100. UFC 125 will also see the official UFC debut of beloved WEC card-holder Brittney Palmer. (Damn, and just when I made a New Year’s resolution to not creepily stare at women so much. Ah well, there’s always 2012.) To see more of Miss Madison, check out our photo galleries at the links below…

Ring Girl Nicole Craner Accuses Strikeforce of Stiffing Her [UPDATED]

Nicole Craner MMA ring girl Shark Fights Strikeforce photos photo gallery

UPDATE: Strikeforce has denied Craner’s story, and claims they have records of paying her for all her appearances and travel expenses.

Of all the ring girls that have come and gone in the employ of Strikeforce, Nicole Craner was one of the all-time greats. These days, the 29-year-old Idaho native holds cards for Shark Fights — which seems like a downgrade until you learn that Craner wasn’t getting paid at her old job. As she revealed on a recent episode of TUF Crap Radio:

“I think when you’re an organization like the UFC, they value their [Octagon] girls. They treat them well, they’re part of the family, and that’s something that I wanted to do with Strikeforce…With Strikeforce I can honestly say that I don’t think Scott Coker even knew my name. I don’t think he knew any of his ring girls’ names and I’ve never really talked about this before, but it came down to not getting paid; And for me, I treated it as a job and I put a lot of effort into it and when you’re not respected or valued enough, it makes you want to go somewhere else…

So I mean you can pay Frank Shamrock 340,000 dollars to lose but you can’t pay your ring girl 400 bucks?…There were promises made that we were going to do contracts and that we were going to travel and they had me host something that they said Josh Thomson and Cung Le would be hosting, but it was something that they didn’t host or never were going to host and I never got paid for it. So those kinds of things, to me, made me just quit. I felt that if I’m going to put passion into it and I’m going to go out there and put your name out there that I should at least be respected enough and valued as part of the company."

Damn, even the eye-candy’s taking shots at Strikeforce now. But when you consider that NFL cheerleaders make just $50-75 a game, you can’t really expect an MMA ring girl to be compensated with anything more than complimentary booty-shorts and an occasional wink from Mauro Ranallo. Of course, this is all just an excuse to run some more photos of Nicole. You can find those after the jump…

Video Interview: Joanne Spracklen of ‘MMA Girls’ Gets Personal

When we last interviewed her two years ago, Joanne Spracklen of was an up-and-coming video-blogger known for her UFC predictions and jiu-jitsu tutorials, and was just a struggling MMA blog with a very small audience. Now, Joanne rubs elbows with UFC stars, sponsors female fighters, and acts in movies, while CagePotato…well, not much has changed for us, actually. But after we featured her as one of the 12 Hottest Women in MMA last month, Joanne offered to answer a new set of questions, for old time’s sake.

In this brand-new video interview, Joanne tries to seduce her way into a higher placement on our Hottest Women list, discusses her "lurker" role in Never Back Down, explains why she’s never dated an MMA fighter, and does a pretty solid impression of a vapid L.A. resident. For more of Joanne, follow her on MySpace, Facebook, and Twitter!

The UFC announced last night that Rachelle Leah — the former Octagon Girl, Playboy cover model, and 8th hottest woman in MMA — will be back at her old ring-girl gig for one night only at UFC 111, March 27th in Newark. No word yet on if she’s filling in for Arianny Celeste (#2) or Chandella Powell (unranked), or if it’ll be a threesome. In honor of this blessed occasion, here are some pics of Rachelle that we didn’t run the last time we featured her. Because there’s nothing more to tell you, and what else are we gonna do?

The 12 Hottest Women in MMA

Between the ring girls, apparel models, television hosts, and the lady-fighters themselves, MMA is a damn fine sport to follow if you appreciate beautiful women. (And my God, do we ever.) So we figured, why not throw together our favorite females from all corners of the fight game and see how they stack up against each other? Enjoy the pics, and let us know how you’d rank ‘em in the comments section. And if you like this list, Digg it!

Miesha Tate hot MMA fighter
Hot Contender: Spending her high school years on the boys’ wrestling team gave Miesha Tate the grit she needed to fight in cages for a living. These days, "Takedown Tate" is one of the top-ten 135-pound female fighters in the world, and the combination of her nasty ground-and-pound and natural sex appeal has made her a rising star. You can see Miesha in action next month at Strikeforce Challengers 7 as she takes on Zoila Frausto.

Hot East Coast Girl: A native of Staten Island, Laura is a local legend among MMA fans in New York and New Jersey thanks to her ring-girl appearances for fight clubs like Ring of Combat and Asylum Fight League. As a professional hot chick, she has tremendous upside; let’s hope this exciting prospect gets her shot at the majors sooner rather than later.
