Hot Potato: Meet Summer Daniels, Bellator’s New Ring Girl ‘Direction’ [15 Photos]

Last month, we shed a tear at the news that Bellator had cut ties with beloved ring girl Jade Bryce, who explained that the promotion has “chosen to go in a different direction for the new year.” Well, today we learned what that “direction” was. Bellator has announced that model/singer Summer Daniels has been hired as the new ring girl for Bellator, and she’ll be making her debut this Friday at Bellator 132: Pitbull vs. Straus in Temecula, CA.

Summer’s biggest claim to fame is that she’s the only woman to appear on the cover of Hustler without getting nude inside the magazine, which is a pretty impressive achievement, I guess. The Malibu-based model also has a lot of experience doing live promo and ring girl work, including gigs as a Monster Girl (with longtime Bellator babe Mercedes Terrell) and as a Corona Girl.

Check out 15 of our favorite Summer Daniels photos in the gallery after the jump, and follow her on Instagram and Twitter for lots more.

A Loving Photo/Video Tribute to Jade Bryce, Former (!?) Bellator Ring Girl


(MMA Impressions With Jade Bryce, Part 2: The Thrill of Victory” — The greatest original video we’ve ever published.)

By now, you’ve probably heard the news: Longtime Bellator ring girl Jade Bryce has been released from the promotion. “Super sad to announce that I am no longer with Bellator,” Jade wrote on Instagram over the weekend. “They have chosen to go in a different direction for the new year. I worked exactly 99 fights for them over the past 4 years, & it truly was the best 4 years of my life.”

If Bellator’s “new direction” involves getting rid of all of its ring girls — even the other one that you never really hear about — because the use of ring girls in combat sports is a sexist tradition or whatever, we will grudgingly accept that. (Also, if Bellator is cutting Jade to make room for a ring boy, we will also accept that, because CagePotato has always supported equality and absurdity.)

Any other explanation makes no sense. Jade Bryce is a more beloved and respectable figure than 90% of Bellator’s actual fighter-roster. So yeah, we’re a little bitter today, because we love Jade; she’s beautiful, kind-hearted, and any MMA ring girl who doesn’t recoil in horror around us is aces in our book.

To help you process your own grief about Jade’s firing, we’ve collected her all-time greatest videos, photos, and assorted miscellany that we’ve ever posted on this site. Enjoy these two jam-packed pages of Classic Jade, click all the images for larger versions, and show her some love on Twitter @thejadebryce. We’ll let you know where she ends up.

Hot Potato: 20 Photos of Christine Hallauer, One FC Ring Girl

The fact that we’ve never done a Hot Potato gallery on Christine Hallauer is a cruel injustice. But as Babes of MMA reminds us, the strikingly gorgeous ONE FC ring girl will be back in action this coming Friday at ONE FC: Reign of Champions in Dubai, and that’s reason enough to show you a bunch of her photos today.

Christine is a Swiss-Filipina model from Perth, Australia, who has appeared on magazine covers for FHM‘s Singapore, Malaysia, and Philippines editions, as well as Men’s Health Singapore and Muse. According to her bio, she earned a Bachelor of Commerce at Curtin University in Western Australia, and “When she’s not appearing before a camera or introducing MMA fights to eager crowds, she’s working in the oil and gas industry in Australia—reaping the rewards of her academically focused career.” Basically, she’s the Shane Carwin of MMA ring girls.

Check out 20 of our favorite Christine Hallauer photos in the gallery after the jump, and visit her Facebook page and official site for lots more. And if you missed ‘em before, take a look at our previous galleries on ONE FC ring girls Felixia Yeap, Maya T., Mila G., and Park Si Hyun.
