Since covering my first UFC event, I've had a burning question for the women who serve as Octagon Girls. Do they actually hear the lewd things yelled at them, or are they so focused on not falling off the narrow apron that surrounds the Octagon that they block the whistles, cheers and sometimes-crude shouts out?
It turns out that their hearing is just fine. Brittney Palmer and Chandella Powell from the UFC and Stephanie Anne-Cook from the Las Vegas-based promotion Tuff-n-Uff discussed how they are received with Mike Straka.
Brittney Palmer, the WEC Octagon Girl who recently crossed over to the UFC, knows you like her butt. You probably don't have to yell that to her for the 30th time.
