When the UFC announced that Brittney Palmer was no longer a ring card girl, there was some backlash from fans. Palmer, deciding to pursue an opportunity at art school, was unable to balance the travel schedule for Zuffa as well as modeling opportunities and school work. However, a few weeks ago UFC President Dana White tweeted his followers asking if fans wanted to see the former ring girl back in the promotion. White received tons of responses from fans that unanimously decided that Palmer should return to the UFC.
Palmer spoke with MMA Weekly radio and had the following to say about her return:
"It's so amazing, I love it. Studying art itself and art history, just everything, it changes who I am as a person and the way I look at things, and the way I look at people," Palmer said. "It's the most amazing experience I've ever had and I've never felt more grounded and more fulfilled in my whole life. It's paying off."
"It's cool to think even though I'm just the girl that holds the card, I have as many fans as I do. I feel blessed."
There is no word on if this will be her full time return or a one off, but this is good news for all Brittney Palmer fans.
