UFC Octagon Girl Brittney Palmer officially joins co-worker Arianny Celeste and former cagewalker Rachelle Leah to grace the pages and cover of Playboy, as her March 2012 appearance is set to hit the newsstands and interwebs this Friday.
The 24-year-old will be part of an eight-page layout with some additional photos also available on Playboy's website.
In a quote accompanied with a recent press release, Palmer said, "I take figure-drawing classes every day. Ninety-nine percent of the time, there’s a nude model in your class. It’s beautiful and it’s art. I really enjoy drawing nudes. I think women’s bodies are fantastic and I work my ass off for my body. I have such appreciation for being in Playboy. It’s like being a model for an elite figure-drawing class."
Palmer has gained some notoriety for being a self-taught artist and is currently enrolled at UCLA art school. She also was supposedly out of the UFC at one point in late-2011 but UFC President Dana White brought her back after doing some Twitter polling.
Below is the full cover and an additional promo shot. All photos are provided and posted with the full authorization of Playboy.
