Sportkz has revealed that top UFC ring girls earn about $1000 in match fees, and aditional $5000 in PPV-Events. But, their annual earnings is much diferent.

UFC ring girl with biggest annual earnings is by far Arianny Celeste, with about $1 million a year. That is more than 25% of MMA female fighters earn. As you will see below, their annual earnings don’t only come from being UFC ring girls.

Bear in mind, UFC never shares the financial details of their staff and fighters, so these stats don’t have to be completely correct, but we tried to make them as correct as possible.

UFC Ring Girl #1 – Arianny Celeste

As you can see, with more then 3 million followers, the most paid UFC ring girls promotes all and everything, so it is not so suprising she earns that much.

Even thou she is best known for being an UFC ring girl, she is also a co-host on TV show Overhaulin’ and a model featured in Playboy magazine.

Celeste has modeled for magazines such as Maxim, FHM, Playboy, Sports Illustrated, and Fighter’s Only Magazine.

Maxim voted her “The Hottest UFC Octagon Girl” in 2010, and she also posed nude for November 2010 issue of Playboy, which was one of top-selling issues that year.

Her estimated net worth in 2019 is somewhere between $1 Million – $5 Million (Approx.)

UFC Ring Girl #2 – Camila Oliveira

In the second place we have Camila Oliveira. She’s a rising star as an MMA and UFC ring girl. When she was 16 years old she started modeling, and she is still doing it.

Oliveira doesn’t have nearly as big base of followers as Celeste, but we are sure some of her annual earnings come from that as well. It is reported that her estimated yearly earnings are somewhere about $50,000. This does not include her photoshoots session and advertisement appearances.

UFC Ring Girl #3 – Brittney Palmer

Brittney Palmer (born June 24, 1987), is an American ring girl and model. She is best known for her work as an Octagon girl for the UFC, and was awarded Ringcard Girl of the Year for 2012 at the World MMA Awards and again in 2013.

She also appeared at the cover of Playboy magazine, and became the third girl to do it.

Even thou here annual earning as a UFC ring girl is reported to be somewhere around $30,000, we believe she earns much more. She has a huge following on Instagram, with more than a million followers, so she certainly earns from other sources as well.

UFC Ring Girl #4 – Chrissy Blair

Chrissy Blair is a UFC ring girl and a model. She has a decent Instagram following of about 200k.

Chrissy made an appearance on the main covers magazines “GUESS, Sports Illustrated, and Maxim”. According to sources, she holds a degree in graphic design and fine art and also got experience in branding and marketing.

With all that education and experience in branding and marketing, we believe she earns much more than only those $30,000 as a UFC ring girl.

UFC Ring Girl #5 – Carly Baker

Carly Baker is a model and personal trainer most famous as a ring girl for UFC. She was also a pageant contestant in the Miss Great Britain competition and has become a social media influencer with more than 260,000 followers just on Instagram.

Her UFC annual earnings are reported to be somewhere about $30,000, but we are sure she makes much more with advertisements, endorsements, modeling, and such.

UFC Ring Girl #6 – Vanessa Hanson

Vanessa Hanson is the quintessential California girl from Orange County, California. Vaness is a model in LA (Tricia Brink Management) Miami (CGM Models) and Toronto (Dulcedo Models). She is also the Co-Owner of the yoga studio Olive Yoga in Long Beach, CA. But most importantly, she is one of the top paid UFC ring girls.

She has worked with clients such as GQ, Maxim, FHM, Self Magazine, Cosmopolitan, Heineken, Tory Burch, Jaguar, TJ Maxx, Joico, and Nasty Gal to name a few. So, we can be sure that UFC isn’t her only source of income.
