Hot Potato: 18 Photos of ‘MMA Candy’ Model/Instructor Katie DeLuca

(Payback time!)

Katie DeLuca is a 23-year-old professional model from South Florida who has appeared as a fighter interviewer, grappling instructor, and all-around hot-chick for Katie was recently named a Maxim Hometown Hotties 2013 semi-finalist, and is currently studying for a Masters of Economics degree. Discussing her jiu-jitsu training with Muze Magazine, she said:

Jiu Jitsu is a great workout and requires a lot of dexterity and strength. I know its not your conventional yoga or spinning class, but for aerobic and anaerobic training, there’s nothing like it. I always loved watching the UFC fights and all the action that goes with it, but its really different when you’re the one on the mat; it’s not as easy as it looks and I have a lot more respect for the fighters and the technique that goes into what they do…My friend Jessica Aguilar is also a really great fighter and that girl is #8-ranked pound-for-pound fighter in the world…[but] you would never catch me trying to roll with these girls, they are tough!

(Full gallery is after the jump.)

Amy Markham is a 20-year-old model originally from Killeen, Texas, who recently dipped her toes in the MMA scene with a pictorial in MMA Unleashed magazine. (Thanks to BabesofMMA for the tip; that should go without saying by now.) Couple things about Amy: She’s half Korean, and grew up as an Army brat. She’s also into cars. Like, really into cars. When asked by AutoMotoFoto to describe her dream car, she replied:

Just because I’m learning Autocross, E46 M3 with the HPF boost kit, upgraded HPF clutch, upgraded injectors – all the internal mods necessary for the boost (too lazy to list all engine mods…HPF sums it up), short throw shifter, Tein Flex Coilovers (body roll SUCKS in Autocross), Borla Cat Back Exhaust, Carbon Fiber hood and trunk for weight reduction, Brembo brake kit, Nittos, Ace Custom Steering Wheel, Strip the car out and add a roll cage, and I would need LOTS of tape for the front bumper because they don’t call me ‘Cone Killa’ for no reason! LOL

Holy crap, I understood none of that. For more of Amy, visit her official website and her Facebook fan page — or, just check out our favorite Amy Markham photos in the gallery below…
