The Ultimate Fighting Championship, or UFC, is known for its no-holds barred fights. It is one of the fastest growing sports in the world with stars like Anderson Silva, Georges St. Pierre, Jon Bones Jones and Cain Velasquez. It is definitely a sport filled with testosterone.
And in a testosterone-filled world, the best way to calm everyone down is to make them realize the beauty of this world. The sexy ring girls that the UFC employs to hike up the octagon stage in the middle of each round best personify this beauty.
