We think it’s very fitting that Arianny Celeste shares the same birthday as the sporting brand that’s made her so famous: Ultimate Fighting Championship. On November 12th, 1993, an 8-man tournament was hosted in McNichols Sports Arena in Denver, CO. That MMA match is now known as UFC 1 and marked the beginning of one of the most exciting action sports in modern history.
It took a few more matches until UFC Octagon Girls were introduced (Amber Nichole-Miller was the first at UFC 40) but it’s a safe bet to say that they’re here to stay. Most people either familiar with the sport or hot women in general are aware of the likes of Arianny Celeste and Brittney Palmer, but you’ll be happy to know that there are actually more than a few women who’ve walked ringside in the sport’s history.
That list includes hotties like Kang Ye Bin, Jessica Cambensy, Logan Stanton, Natasha Wicks, Carly Baker, Chrissy Blair, Rachelle Leah, Chandella Powell, Kenda Perez, and much much more.
In celebration of the 21st Anniversary of UFC, we’ve pulled some of our favorite memories and women from the sport. Check out their photos below.
