Octagon Girls: Edith Out, Natasha In

Octagon Girls Edith & Natasha

Edith LaBelle is officially a former UFC Octagon girl. Fightlinker noticed earlier this week that she had been removed from the Octagon girl page leaving everyone wondering if she was no longer with the UFC. And as it turns out, she’s not. Ariel Helwani spoke to Edith’s manager who confirmed the suspicion, but didn’t give a reason why. She was at the UFC 100 weigh-ins, but not on the UFC 100 broadcast. So what happened? Well, no one really knows for sure, but Fighters Only is hearing she got so drunk Friday night before UFC 100 she couldn’t make it to the event because she had a horrible hangover, so the UFC fired her.

Things worked out perfectly though, because Natasha Wicks won the UFC/Maxim Octagon girl search over UFC 100 weekend and will slide right in as Edith’s unofficial replacement. She makes her debut this weekend at UFC 101.
