I have an idea - one that's been recurring for a while now. It started right here on bloodyelbow.com, in the ever so popular "How Taste My Tweet Tweet" articles. From the selections you post in that section, Brittney Palmer is a very interesting person. The comment section below always seemed to echo my thoughts. After HTMTT had been my only avenue to Twitter for over a year, I finally got a Twitter and follow Ms. Palmer. And I like most of it.
I feel as if the UFC has a hidden gem and just hasn't realized it yet. Brittney Palmer, the octagon girl, could turn into a big star for the promotion. Arianny Celeste is famous; it's safe to say that now. If anybody saw the new Bud Light Lime add, it looks like she's only getting bigger. Brittney could be the next Arianny, if not more.
As limited as an octagon girl's exposure is, she's already garnered a huge fan base already. At my first MMA event, WEC 41, I witnessed the crowd holler for Brittney like prepubescent girls do at Justin Bieber. Multiple comments were made around me every time she did her lap. And from scouring several MMA websites I do, it seems that everybody loves this girl. I can't help but blame them. From what I've seen, she's an extremely talented artist, big fan of music, and just an all-around kind person. (Honestly, it's the exact opposite of what I've seen from Ms. Celeste, but hey, she didn't need it.)
The UFC has grown a star out of a ring girl already, and they are able to do it again now. They could market Palmer in a number of ways, from hosting/co-hosting UFC Unleashed to a short, weekly speaking role on TUF 14 (which is the first TUF I've been excited for in a long time). Hopefully they realize it soon and can capitalize.
