These days Amber is a spokesmodel for XYIENCE, and amongst other things presents their Tap Into MMA’ show as well as appearing in a couple of their commercials.  She still watches the UFC and said recently in an interview with Ariel Helwani that she’d love to make a guest appearance as an octagon girl again if the UFC asked her.

Ali Sonoma

Tale Of The Tape:

  • Height: 5’7
  • Weight: 125lbs
  • Measurements: 36-26-36

Ali Sonoma made her way into the UFC after appearing in Maxim’s ‘UFC Octagon Girl Search’ in 2006. Though she finished in second place she got the job and made her first appearance at UFC 66. She went on to became one of the most fondly remembered octagon girls before leaving in late 2007.

Ali was at one time engaged to UFC fighter Diego Sanchez, but the two parted ways in 2008. After leaving the UFC Sonama appeared on ABC show “The Mole” and won $30,000. In 2009 she competed in the first ever bikini division of woman’s bodybuilding at the Arnold Classic and claimed first place.

Edith Labelle

Tale Of The Tape:

  • Height: 5’8
  • Weight: 117lbs
  • Measurements: 38-25-38

After Ali Sonoma left, Edith Labelle swiftly stepped in to replace her as the UFC’s latest octagon girl in November of 2007.  She featured as an octagon girl in UFC Undisputed 2009 and continued to appear at events until UFC 100 where she was conspicuous by her absence.

It later emerged she had been fired after reports that she was drunk the night before the event and had been too ill to attend the event.  Edith has denied that was the case, saying she had food poisoning.

Edith has since been keen to break into acting and appeared in low budget straight-to-DVD sci-fi film ‘Recon 2023’ last year. Later this year she’s set to appear in another low budget offering, the french language web series ‘Heroes Of The North’, in which she plays the role of a super-hero named ‘Fleur-De-Lys’. She is also believed to still be modeling as well as hosting.

Logan Stanton

Tale Of The Tape:

Height: 5’10

Weight: 115lbs

Measurements: ???

By her own admission Logan Stanton was not the most curvaceous octagon girl ever, but she was certainly one of the most photogenic.  She joined the promotion in late 2008 at UFC 92 and continued on until UFC 107, after which she and fellow octagon girl Natasha Wicks were released.  The fact that they were both cut at the same time without prior warning suggested something had gone on behind the scenes, with rumors of infighting between the girls and Arianny Celeste.

Logan has since refocused on her modeling career, and had considerable success.  She is represented by the Wilhelmena modeling agency and has recently fronted campaigns for high profile brands like Guess Jeans and Roxy amongst others.

Natasha Wicks

Weight: 105lbs

Measurements: 34-25-36

After winning a Maxim competition to find the UFC’s next octagon girl Natasha Wicks made her first appearance at UFC 101 and continued until UFC 107. She was then unexpectedly cut free from her contract by the UFC along with Logan Stanton.

Though no official reason was given it’s believed that a rift between the two and long-serving octagon girl Arianny Celeste which they admitted to in interviews prior to being cut may have led to their dismissal.

Since leaving Natasha has moved from Las Vegas to Los Angeles in 2010 as she looks to break into the acting business while continuing to model. She has appeared in the soap ‘General Hospital’ and is a spokesmodel for BSN supplements. She also continues to indulge in her passion for running and is part of a team of six that between them will cover 180 miles at an event in October.

  • Height: 5’5
  • Weight: 110lbs

For one night only, at the historic UFC 100 event in 2009, Hugh Hefner’s former ‘No.1 girlfriend’ Holly Madison donned the UFC costume, instantly making her the most famous octagon girl to date.  She had been a long-term UFC fan before that, and had appeared in the audience at a number of events.

Since then Holly has been starring in the burlesque show ‘Peepshow’ at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas and is currently starring in her own reality show on E! called ‘Holly’s World.’  She has an open invitation from UFC president Dana White to do another stint as an octagon girl whenever she wants.
