If all the fighter appearances, Hall of Fame inductions, grappling superfights, and Kimbo sightings aren’t enough of an incentive to check out the UFC Fan Expo (July 10+11, Mandalay Convention Center, Las Vegas), maybe this will convince you. From UFC.com:
It’s the Ultimate gig in the world of sports modeling, and when The Ultimate Fighting Championship® (UFC®) decided to search for potential new Octagon Girls™, it reached out to the only magazine devoted to discovering new beauty around the world: Maxim, the largest young men’s lifestyle magazine in America. The result? A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for attendees of the UFC® Fan Expo™ to be on hand when the winner of the first-ever Maxim UFC® Octagon Girl™ Search is chosen at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, July 11th, just hours before the lights go down for the biggest event in mixed martial arts history, UFC 100.
During the two-day Fan Expo, the Octagon Girl Search will culminate with a live voting phase at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center, on the main stage of Bayside Hall B. The event will feature UFC fighters and Maxim editors selecting the winner in a runway-style pageant during the UFC Fan Expo. The winning model will receive a UFC Octagon Girl contract and will be featured throughout the Maxim properties, including Maxim magazine and on Maxim.com. Girls interested in entering the Maxim UFC® Octagon Girl™ Search will need to pre-register at Maxim.com
or at one of Maxim’s upcoming casting events
. Details on the casting events will be listed at Maxim.com. Participants must be 18 years of age.
We’re all for adding a new body to the brunette Murderer’s Row of Arianny/Edith/Logan. Though this does remind us a bit of those poor married couples who have three boys in a row, and decide to get pregnant one last time in the hopes that they’ll finally have a blonde or an Asian.
Related: In the new UFC magazine (which includes a super-hot pictorial of Logan Stanton, by the way ) there’s this eyebrow-raising bit in a Q+A column with Rachelle Leah:
Q: Will you come back as an Octagon Girl for one night only at UFC 100?
Hey, you never know.
