Heartbreaker: Kelli Hutcherson Is Leaving Strikeforce

Bad news. Super awesome Strikeforce ring girl Kelli Hutcherson is leaving Strikeforce following their upcoming Dec. 17 card. Kelli revealed the heartbreaking news earlier today on Twitter.

Last day of my laziness. Start the new job tomorrow! Yay! #reallife

My new job is at a mortgage company :) still with @Strikeforce but dec 17 is my last fight. Sorry to drop that bomb but it wasn’t up to me

You guys will love the new Strikeforce ring girl! She is UH MAZING! I promise you

Kelli didn’t say why she’s leaving or being forced to leave, but seriously, if this was Zuffa’s decision, what is with all the best ring girls getting the pink slip? First, Natasha Wicks and Logan Stanton, and now Kelli Hutcherson. Do hot girls with great personalities not fit Zuffa’s ring girl mold? Or is Kelli being moved to the UFC and not telling us??? I really hope it’s the latter.

Nevertheless, Kelli was right about one thing. Her replacement is “UH MAZING.” Well, she looks amazing at least. Her name is Corinne Solomon and you can check out a few pics on her official website.
