Strikeforce ring girls Chrissy Blair, Vanessa Hanson move to UFC

Esther Lin/Showtime Sports

Vanessa Hanson and Chrissy Blair are the two newest UFC octagon girls.

The UFC officially has two new octagon girls, and they're familiar faces to anyone that watched Strikeforce. The two official ring girls from that organization, Chrissy Blair and Vanessa Hanson, will join a rapidly-growing list of ladies that work for the UFC. The two will begin work at The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale in Las Vegas on April 13th. The news was confirmed by UFC officials recently.

Both ladies have actually worked as guest octagon girls in the past. Hanson won the TransWorld Surf UFC Model Search in 2011. She worked UFC 136 before moving over to Strikeforce. Blair did the same thing, working UFC 133 after winning the 2011 Miss TransWorld Motocross modeling search.

The UFC now employs Arianny Celeste, Brittney Palmer, Su Jung Lee, Carly Baker, Camila Oliveira and Aline Franzoi as octagon girls (some being region-specific).
