UFC announces addition of Latin American Octagon girls

Posted by Juan Gavasa on August 09, 2014

The UFC has selected a pair of ladies to be their Octagon girls in Latin America and they're spicier than some habanero chili.

This week, the UFC announced that Betzy Montero and Jamillette Gaxiola will be the resident Octagon girls when the organization holds fights in Latin America. Montero, who is from Costa Rica, and Gaxiola, from Mexico, will make their debut on The Ultimate Fighter Latin America, which begins airing on Aug. 25 in the states on UFC Fight Pass.

Montero and Gaxiola will be carrying the round cards at UFC 180 in Mexico City, which will be the UFC's first-ever trip to Mexico. The UFC is also planning a trip to Puerto Rico, among other Latin American countries, in 2015. So, you'll be seeing quite a bit of Montero and Gaxiola soon -- which is certainly not a bad thing.

"Being part of The Ultimate Fighter Latin America is important to me because I am proud of my Costa Rican heritage," Montero said. "I want to be a worthy representative of Costa Rican women and my country on a global platform as it is."

Added Gaxiola: "I am very excited to be part of The Ultimate Fighter Latin America. Since I went to my first UFC fight as a fan, I felt this great energy in the Octagon and I love knowing that I now have the opportunity to participate."
