Bold statement, we know, but this 2013 CFA (Championship Fighting Alliance) ring girl calendar is the sexiest thing that the MMA world has seen in a while. Does it matter that we didn't know what the CFA was until we stumbled across this video? No, what matters is that we know what it is now and what type of talent they have in the ring girl realm. JUMP!
Our old photographer friend, Scott B., in Houston sent word yesterday that he had a candidate for our 'America's Next Great MMA Ring Girl' contest. Scott reports, "Franky, who just turned 24 this past Monday, is a marketing major at the University of Houston where she was a cheerleader for a couple of years." Wait, what? Some parents call this a worst-case scenario. We call it a perfect storm. JUMP!
Here's what we know about MMA Ring Girl Shannon Ihrke: she's a former Marine Corps member. Yes, like in fatigues and all. Sure, she had a desk job, but it takes all kinds to keep the machine running. Now out of the Corps, Shannon is busy modeling and carrying cage fighting cards. There will come a day when Dana White needs to replace Arianny and Brittney Palmer. Um, Dana, here's your future. She's hot, loves combat sports & the outdoors! JUMP!
Fight Day Live is back today from the Air Canada Centre in Toronto for UFC 152. Two title fights will be on the line as Jon Jones battles former UFC champion Vitor Belfort, and Joseph Benavidez will take on Demetrious Johnson to crown the first UFC flyweight champion. If that isn’t enough, outspoken middleweight Michael Bisping fights the “All American” Brian Stann. JUMP!
Kristie Jane McKeon might be one of the hottest ring girls we've ever seen. By now you know how much we love Arianny Celeste, so that's a bold statement, but take a look at these pictures of Kristie and try to argue with us. She'll be appearing in the upcoming UK/Australia season of The Ultimate Fighter and coincidentally is dating TUF coach Ross Pearson. We say coincidentally because she is clearly hot enough to get the job without having to pull any strings. JUMP!
It's that time of year again. The 2013 calendar's are rolling out left and right and UFC ring girl Arianny Celeste isn't going to disappoint. She released a behind-the-scenes video from her Miami, Florida shoot and...well let's just say we pre-ordered the calendar. In the video, Arianny looks incredible, especially when she is in the sauna rocking only a skimpy white towel. We pulled 14 of the sexiest screen grabs from the behind the scenes video...you won't want to miss these. JUMP!
Don't know who Katie DeLuca is? Our bros at Cage Potato have you covered. Katie is a total babe and professional model from South Florida. She has been recently featured as an MMA Candy girl and was a semi-finalist in the now infamous Maxim Hometown Hotties contest. Looking at these photos you can see why. Time for the UFC to take notice and get this girl a more prominent role in the MMA World! JUMP!
Our friends at Cage Potato have done it again. This time they uncovered an MMA model named Kendra Schnell, a beautiful blonde who has been working with Tuff N' Uff Fighting Championships. With a booty like that, it's only a matter of time before Dana White scoops her up to prowl the ringside for UFC matches. Schnell has all the tools to be a successful ring-girl for years to come. JUMP!
Thanks to our friends at Cage Potato, we have a new favorite redhead. Jenae Noonan is a sexy MMA fighter who moonlights as a model. We say moonlights because she is still pretty active in the fighting scene and will participate in October's World Sports MMA tournament. Why Jenae would risk destroying this face is beyond comprehension.JUMP!
If you know BC, you know just how much we love our MMA ring girls. Over the years we have highlighted the best that mixed martial arts has to offer, including Brittney Palmer and our personal favorite...Arianny Celeste. Is Donna Lazarescu about to become our new favorite? Don't be surprised, because this 22-year-old is the complete package and is bound to become the dream-girl for every MMA fan-boy across the world. Oh, and she's pre-med! JUMP!
Fight Day is back this Saturday, live from UFC 150 in Denver, Colorado. Host Dave Farra will guide you through the entire night's action with expert analysis from industry veterans John Morgan of MMAJunkie, Brett Okamoto of ESPN, and Mike Straka of Tapout Radio. Fight Day's Maggie Krol takes you behind the scenes for interviews with all the fighters on the main card. JUMP!
That's right, boys, it's that time of year when hot chicks start compiling photos that'll end up in calendars that'll hit your local mall in early November for the Christmas rush. Brittney Palmer is working on her 2013 bikini calendar this week. What's different from her 2012 calendar? Looks like she's been working on the quads. JUMP!
Fight Day Live is back today with a great preview show for UFC 149: Faber vs. Barao. Host Dave Farra will be joined live on set by MMAJunkie's John Morgan and ESPN's Brett Okamoto to break down all of the fights going down in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Correspondent Maggie Krol will take you behind the scenes and chat with all the big names on the night's card. Be sure and tune in at 6pm ET/3pm PT for Fight Day Live. JUMP!
Office grind getting to you already this morning? Here's something to cure your workday blues...the beautiful and busty babes of MMA Candy. Brittney and friends put out a series of videos last year teaching viewers proper technique (we think) for a variety of MMA guards and holds. Because clearly that's what we paid attention to in these videos. Don't worry, we pulled the sexiest screen grabs and have a video for you. JUMP!
Fight Day is back, bigger and better than ever. Host Dave Farra will navigate you through all the news and drama surrounding the UFC 148 card and MMA experts John Morgan (MMAJunkie) and Larry Pepe (ProMMA Radio) will provide insight and analysis to prepare you for the big event. Correspondent Maggie Krol takes you on a tour of the UFC Fan Expo and checks in with Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen. JUMP!
Sonnen-Silva is finally here. UFC 148 is Saturday night in Las Vegas and Dana White needs a huge night for the sport. Recent fight cards haven't even come close to the street cred of what UFC 148 will have on pay-per-view. You also get Forrest Griffin vs. Tito Ortiz. And Cung Le vs. Patrick Coté. If Sonnen and his taunts can't get you to purchase UFC 148, you aren't a MMA fan at all. Hate him all you want, he's the best thing going for Dana's company. JUMP!
Saturday night in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, UFC will be taking center stage for their latest PPV event. Ever since UFC 147 was announced, fans and media critics alike were a bit bored with everything about it. The night is headlined by two pretty washed-up fighters who would normally be relegated to the undercard. We aren't here to complain and as long as there are some flashy ring girls and a few solid bouts we'll be happy with the evening. Match previews and ring girls - JUMP!
Arrianny Celeste, a UFC ring girl, was arrested on domestic violence charges in Las Vegas. Her bail was set at 3,000 dollars and she was taken into custody at 7:30 am. Details are still emerging from the incident and most of what happened is unknown. It was probably pretty serious since it isn't exactly easy to get arrested in Las Vegas. I guess she won't be in attendance at UFC 146 tonight. You'll also probably want to check out the 60 greatest Arianny Celeste photos. JUMP!
Fight Day Live is back on May 26th at 6pm ET/ 3pm PT to prepare you for the “biggest” card of all time, UFC 146. The all heavyweight main card is highlighted by a title fight between Junior Dos Santos and former champ, Frank Mir. Also fighting Saturday night is another former heavyweight champion, Cain Velasquez, as he returns to the cage for the first time since losing the belt to Dos Santos. JUMP!
Jon "Bones" Jones wrapped his Bentley around a pole in Binghamton, New York at around 5 am this morning. Jones was reportedly physically okay, but he was popped for a DUI charge and was bailed out by his mother hours later. I guess Jon Jones was taking a break from his training for his upcoming September 1st fight against Dan Henderson in Las Vegas. It's always cheaper to take a taxi (especially when you are driving a Bentley). JUMP!
UFC bantamweight TUF coach Urijah Faber had something to show his fans this afternoon on Twitter. "About to go get a few staples to the dome. Another day at the office #tuflive," he wrote. True, it's not the worst head wound in UFC history, but this one came in a practice. Faber is currently a coach on the Ultimate Fighter. Don't even start bitching this afternoon about how you struggled through another hard day of work. Do you have a head wound? (via @UrijahFaber)
Ronda Rousey is a MMA fighter that had a former hook up reach out to her on Instagram. Well, she didn't harbor very warm feelings for the old flame as she told him to "F#$% off." The dude tried to get back in contact with her after not calling her back. Apparently she didn't like the fact he waited till she got famous before trying to get back in contact with her. HT Sportsgrid JUMP!
What is it like to go to a UFC event in New Jersey on Cinco de Mayo? Lots of guys...
A very special episode of Fight Day Live will be coming at you today at 4pm ET from the Izod Center in East Rutherford, NJ. The UFC invades the Fox network with an action packed card highlighted by two contender fights of Josh Koscheck vs. Johny Hendricks and Nate Diaz vs. Jim Miller. Fight Day Live will break down the full fight card as well as discuss the hot button topics in the world of mixed martial arts. JUMP!
What did we learn about the WAGs of the UFC during the investigation & research stage? These ladies are usually tough, some can take a punch and others have guts to date men with pummeled faces. There's also the whole Kim Couture vs. Kerry Vera MMA match in 2009 when Brandon Vera's wife TKOd Randy's now ex-wife. (*Disclaimer: Jenna Jameson didn't make this list because she's unfit to be considered hot in any way. Deal with it.) JUMP!
It's hard to believe that Arianny Celeste has spent six years carrying ring cards for the UFC. Time flies. Seems like just yesterday (2006) she was making her debut at a Hard Rock Casino event and now she has traveled the world as the most recognizable ring girl in MMA history. This 5-foot-5, 110 lb. Los Angeles native has parlayed her UFC fame into a career as a Bud Light model and bit parts on television shows. Our salute to the old Ring Girl vet - JUMP!
Here's what is hard to figure out with hot chicks. Why don't they call each other out for jumping on NBA bandwagons? Guys would give each other sh*t for years if one of your buddies rooted for the Nets and suddenly became a Mavs fan during the NBA Finals. But hot chicks don't operate in this fashion. It's as if they don't care about loyalty. And it's just understood. Chick code. For example, we now learn that Arianny Celeste has climbed on the Lebron bandwagon. JUMP!
UFC pre-show Fight Day Live is back on Saturday, April 21 at 6pm ET/3pm PT. Fight Day Live hosts Dave Farra and Megan Olivi will get you prepared for one of the most anticipated match ups of the year, when bitter rivals Jon Jones and Rashad Evans meet for the light heavyweight championship. Chael Sonnen will be live on the Fight Day set to talk his new book and his big fight with Anderson Silva. JUMP!
The Bellator Fighting Championships roll into Cleveland Friday night for the organization's 66th edition of MMA fights that'll include four tournament fights and a main event on MTV2 starting at 8 p.m. EST. Of course Saturday night is UFC 145 featuring Bones Jones vs. Rashad Evans. Our attention Friday night will be in Cleveland where we expect Jade Bryce will be handling her ring card duties. Who is Ms. Bryce? Um, you haven't seen her yet? JUMP!
MMA fighter Fernando Rodrigues has a lifetime 3-5 record. He also now owns one of the first distinctions in Cuff 'Em history. State attorneys in Florida have successfully argued that Rodrigues shouldn't be allowed bail in a road rage incident this week that left his alleged victim beaten to a pulp. The reasoning why Fernando should be jailed without bond? His hands and feet are deadly weapons. Seriously. JUMP!
WARNING! 45-SECONDS INTO THIS VIDEO A GUY'S LEG IS GOING TO SNAP. THE CROWD GASPS. THE FIGHT ENDS. WARNING! Now that we have that out of the way, say hello to the Cagequest 1 fights held March 3 in Lakewood, WA. This is Fowler vs. Jones Jr. Not sure who these guys are and not sure which guy's leg snaps, but this is about as brutal of an injury you'll ever see. Again, you've been warned. JUMP!
Not going to sit here & tell you guys that I stuck around the office Saturday night for the Ronda Rousey vs. Miesha Tate Strikeforce fight. Got around to seeing the fight yesterday and about puked when Rousey looked to have broken Tate's arm with this insane arm bar. Tate cleared the air last night, telling an MMA outlet that the x-rays don't show any breaks. Whatever. Anyway, Rousey is 5-0 & all 5 victories are via arm bar. Say hello to the new face of MMA. JUMP!
Got a message from BC's new hire, Asher, this afternoon about UFC Ring Girls. "Hey, did you see the new Japanese chick at UFC 144?" Um, no, but tell us more. Supposedly this was a guest appearance by Azusa Nishigaki, but something tells us she'll be making many more appearances on the UFC circuit thanks to her bikini abilities and the growing number of fans in Japan that are getting tired of Arianny Celeste. Can't blame them. JUMP!
The UFC's official pre-show Fight Day Live is back on TODAY at 5:30pm ET/2:30pm PT. Hosts Dave Farra & Megan Olivi will prepare you for all the fighting action at UFC 144 including the big UFC light heavyweight title fight featuring champion Frankie Edgar and challenger Ben Henderson. As always, you'll get the inside information from our panel of experts, Matt Brown from HeavyMMA, John Morgan from MMAJunkie & Joe Ferraro from UFC Connected. JUMP!
Tonight we take you to the world of regional MMA, which isn't much different than regular MMA, except body parts are coming off people's bodies. Kenneth Crowder delivered an elbow so vicious it ripped his opponent, Shane Tyner's ear right off. Seriously. You can see it laying right there on the mat. David Cronenberg couldn't have scripted it much better. Here's the video. Don't watch it while eating. JUMP!
UFC Ring Girl Arianny Celeste has been busy in Miami recently with some bikini modeling gigs. It was just 10 days ago that we proclaimed these to be the best Arianny bikini photos of all time. Today's gallery might change our minds. The key word - might. The problem today is that Arianny doesn't really model her ass in this bikini. Gotta see more ass, hun. Need to turn around that caboose for the paparazzi. Still an A- bikini shoot. JUMP!
