Brittney Palmer is perhaps the most famous ring girl of all time as she has been gracing the fans with her presence since the WEC days before becoming a household name in the UFC.
At this years 12th Annual MMA Awards, Palmer took home the award for Ringcard Girl of the Year. This marked the third time that she has won the award.
In an interview with MyMMANews, Palmer discussed the honor of being selected by the fans once again for the award.
Aside from talking about the award and her time in the UFC, Palmer discussed her modeling career which started as a dancer at the famous Las Vegas shows Jubilee and X Burlesque. Eventually Palmer would make into the UFC as an octagon girl and shortly after she became the covergirl on the April 2012 edition of Playboy Magazine.
Outside of modeling, Palmer is a very talented artist. Her vibrant painting have caught the eye of many people including UFC superstar Conor McGregor who commissioned a portrait Palmer painted of him. That painting is now hung up in McGregor’s gym in Ireland.
Palmer’s artistic ability has landed her with Topps, where Palmer has recently signed on to their 2021 project in which she’ll be doing paintings of baseball players.
You can hear everything Palmer had to say in the video above.
