Former Octagon Girl, Edith Labelle Speaks Out on Her Dismissal
I attended some of the pre-parties with some of the UFC management, some of the Octagon girls, some of the fighters. And then I started to feel ill -- I wasn't feeling good. So I decided to go to bed. I really wanted to be in good shape for the next day, obviously. Then I started to feel worse throughout the night and the next day.
It was so bad that I couldn't stop throwing up... So I contacted the proper UFC personnel to let them know of my situation, and I told them that I would get ready as quick as possible and I would be there. I didn't want to miss that at all. They told me to stay in my room because they didn't want to take the risk of anything happening because it was such a big event.
They contacted me and they said that the rumor was that I was too hungover, that I partied too hard. I just wish ... I was literally laying on the bathroom floor -- I was so sick.
Thinking back, I should have thought to see a doctor or ask them to send one of the UFC's doctors to check up on me to see what was wrong. But I didn't think about it before, and a day or two later, it was too late.
I wish it would have happened differently, but I'm still a huge fan of the UFC.
