MMAMadness.com has learned that both Natasha Wicks and Logan Stanton have been cut from the UFC as ring girls. Stanton’s contract expired after UFC 107 and the UFC chose not to renew it. Wicks was cut before the expiration of her contract. Ring girl Arianny Celeste will remain on with the organization; as her contract has been recently renegotiated- explaining her absense from UFC 107.
According to sources, there will be only two ring girls from this point forward. Though it has not been officially announced, our insiders are being told Chandella Powell, a former playmate, will be the newest ring girl. It has yet to be released when Ms. Powell will start her official ring girl duties, though UFC 108 would be the obvious choice.
This is not the first time a former Playmate has graced the Octagon. At UFC 100 in July, former Playmate Holly Madison acted as a “guest ring girl” for the evening.http://www.mmamadness.com/2009/12/logan-stanton-and-natasha-wicks-but-by-the-ufc-replaced-by-playmate/
