Octagon girl Brittney Palmer is no longer with the UFC. No public reason has been given for the departure of the former WEC cage girl.
Palmer joined the UFC when the WEC was shuttered and along with Urijah Faber proved to be the most popular import from that promotion.â†µ
Palmer tweeted in response to being let go:â†µ
Thanks for all the good luck wishes! I'm figuring it all out. Life is full of surprises. This will definitely keep me grounded. Over and outâ†µ
Palmer is not the first Octagon girl to be released with short notice. Edith Labelle was cut for missing UFC 100. Natasha Wicks and Logan Stanton were let go simultaneously a few months later, shortly after criticizing UFC fighter Josh Koscheck in an interview.â†µ
Arianny Celeste, Rachelle Leah, and Chandella Powell remain the promotion's cage side attractions.â†µ
UFC President Dana White took to Twitter and denied that the UFC released Palmer:â†µ
we didn't get rid of @brittneypalmer so quit listening to hack websites and f***in relax.â†µ
Now Palmer's profile has been restored at the UFC.com web site, is it possible White responded to the outcry from fans in Palmer's favor?
