Find out what turns her on, how she stays fit and the difference between American and Canadian guys.

MF: How do you stay in such great shape?
Edith: I watch what I eat and work out at least 4 times a week.

MF: Do you have any sports you play when you're not working out?
I like rollerblading in the summer and scuba-diving when I get a chance. I am also thinking of taking up Muay-thai boxing.

MF How do you motivate yourself to go to the gym?
It's easy. Knowing I have to get up in front of millions of UFC fans worldwide in a revealing outfit is motivation enough, but I would train regardless because I like to feel fit and take care of myself.

MF: What's the most excited aspect of being an Octagon girl?
Having a front-row seat to the most exciting sport ever—MMA.

MF: Have you met a lot of celebrities since becoming an Octagon girl?
Being a huge UFC fan , the chance to meet all the UFC fighters in person is a real thrill of a lifetime. All the guys are really friendly (outside of the Octagon) and I am really happy that I have had a chance to get to know George St-Pierre. He's a great guy.

MF: What's your guiltiest pleasure?
I have a sweet-tooth, especially for chocolate desserts—but I never indulge more than once a week.
