If you’re like me, you simply ignore the ring girls in MMA broadcasts because if you were to stare at them for more than a few seconds, you would have to open up porn in another window until you’ve “calmed yourself down”. One recent innovation in the MMA ring girl space is the ability to “calm yourself down” with photos of the same girls you’ve just seen on the MMA broadcast. When it was discovered that a ProElite ring girl was doing hardcore porn on the side, ProElite exec T. Jay Thompson simply stated that “Our ‘win a date with a ProElite ring girl’ contest just got a whole lot more popular!”

But over in UFC land, baby Jesus forbids that a woman who’s paid to cavort around in her underwear could tinker with her own vajayjay on camera. It’s okay to be in Playboy, but any suggestion that you might actually use those tender bits for something other than pointing them into the air like bazookas is unacceptable. Several different sources have reported a rumor that UFC octagon girl Chandella Powell could have been fired from the UFC because she did not disclose her former alias, “Mariah Ashton”, under which she performed in several softcore Internet porn shoots.

It had long been known that Chandella Powell was a former Playboy model, but when she underwent her Jekyll-and-Hyde-like transformation to Mariah Ashton, things got kind of crazy. Let’s just say that if Chandella’s job was to hold up the ring cards, Mariah’s job was to open the curtains. After hours of intense scrutiny in the Fightlinker forums, we have concluded that they are indeed the same person. Chandella’s twitter has been silent since Feb. 11, and she wasn’t at the Sanchez vs. Ellenberger card last night, so there might actually be some truth to this.
