UFC ring girl Brittney Palmer featured in March's 'Playboy' magazine


Brittney Palmer, who recently returned to the UFC for ring-girl duties, will be in the March edition of "Playboy."

Officials from the men's magazine recently announced her involvement.

Palmer, who follows in the footsteps of current ring girl Arianny Celeste and former card-carrier Rachelle Leah, is expected to be featured on the cover.

Palmer's upcoming pictorial was teased in a recent edition of "Playboy" and made mention of her passion for painting.

Palmer, a former WEC ring girl who was folded into the UFC earlier this year, recently was on hiatus from the promotion. Although initially reported as a firing, and though Palmer's profile was temporarily removed from, UFC president Dana White later said she simply was taking time away from her ring-girl duties to pursue her art career.

White then hinted this past month she'd be making a return. Palmer, of course, was cageside for this weekend's UFC 140 event, and she recently appeared at the 2011 World MMA Awards, where she was a finalist for Ring Girl of the Year.

Leah was featured in the November 2008 edition of "Playboy." Celeste, meanwhile, was featured on the cover of the November 2010 edition.
