Sao Paulo’s Jhenny Andrade is the newest UFC Octagon girl, and she’ll make her debut today at the “UFC 163: Aldo vs. Korean Zombie” weigh-in.
The UFC announced the new ring girl’s addition on Thursday.
Andrade, 25, has previously worked as a journalist, television announcer and done stints on reality shows. Her hobbies include weight training, dancing and watching MMA, according to the UFC website.
“I’ve always liked the UFC,” she said. “It will be great to be a part of this team and to contribute to the brand’s success.”
The new Octagon girl will join Camila Oliveira, who came on board as the UFC’s first Brazilian Octagon girl in January.
Asked who her favorite fighter is, Andrade pointed to the UFC featherweight champ as her pick of the litter.
“He seems very nice and personable,” she said “He was the first fighter I ever saw in action and he fights with so much passion!”
