Chandella Powell: "Past behind me, moving forward"

Chandella Powell:
February 18th 2012

Chandella Powell is heavily rumoured to have been released from the UFC ring girl roster after saucy soft-porn pictures of her hit the internet this week.

The pictures were taken around ten years ago and feature Powell - modelling under a pseudonym - nude and in contact with another female model. Apparently the UFC has released her not because of the pictures themselves but because Powell did not disclose their existence at the time she signed up to be a ring girl.

Powell commented on the situation earlier:

“When you are young, you often don't realize that your actions have consequences. I made a bad decision about ten years ago, but you learn from these moments. There is nothing I can do to change the past, and believe me, if I could, I would,” she says.

“That decision doesn't represent who I am today. All I can do now is put the past behind me and move forward. I am sorry to disappoint any of my fans and my family at Zuffa. I love you guys.”

The UFC traditionally maintains a roster of three ring girls at any one time and so there is likely to be a new occupant of Chandella’s vacant ringside seat soon. The appointment is sure to attract considerable interest from the young - and not so young - male fans of the UFC.

Ironically, Powell’s past indiscretion has hit the headlines in the same week that fellow ring Brittney Palmer makes her debut in Playboy magazine via several pages of shots featuring her in various poses of tasteful nudity. Palmer is the fourth UFC ring girl to appear in the legendary men’s magazine.
