Former Playboy Model Holly Madison Will Be UFC 100 Octagon Girl

Holly Madison, the former Playboy cover model and star of E! "Girls Next Door," will serve as an honorary Octagon Girl at this weekend's UFC 100 event in Las Vegas. According to a UFC press release, Madison expressed interest in being an Octagon Girl when she attended UFC 98 in May.

"UFC 100 marks the biggest event in the history of our company, so it's the perfect time to bring in the Ultimate Octagon Girl, Holly Madison. Not only is Holly one of the world's most beautiful women, but she is a huge fan and supporter of the UFC, and we're looking forward to having her with us on July 11th," said Dana White, the president of the UFC.

Fans of current Octagon Girls, Arianny Celeste, Edith Labelle and Logan Stanton, should fear not, as Madison will not be replacing any of them on Saturday night.

"It's been a dream of mine since becoming a fan of the UFC and watching the incredible athleticism of the fighters, to do the honors of being an Octagon Girl for a night," said Madison.

Madison was seen wearing the famous Octagon Girl outfit in White's most recent UFC 100 video blog.

Clearly, the UFC is doing everything in its power to make Saturday's event seem extra-special. From the UFC Fan Expo to the Hall of Fame induction, the organization is doing the little things to make UFC 100 feel different than all the other UFC events. This is just another example.
