Brazil Adds New Octagon Girl

Jhenny Andrade becomes the newest UFC Octagon Girl
Sao Paulo's Jhenny Andrade is the newest beauty to grace our sport as a UFC Octagon Girl.

The 25-year-old has previously worked as a journalist, television announcer and reality show contestant. Her hobbies include weight training, dancing and watching MMA: "I've always liked the UFC," she said. "It will be great to be a part of this team and to contribute to the brand’s success."

Andrade will make her debut Friday at the UFC 163: Aldo vs. Korean Zombie weigh-in. She will join Camila Oliveira, who came on board as the UFC's first Brazilian Octagon Girl in January.

And though the Octagon Girls clap for all the stars, don't be surprised if you catch her cheering just a little extra for the main event on Saturday -- Jose Aldo is her favorite fighter. "He seems very nice and personable," she said "He was the first fighter I ever saw in action and he fights with so much passion!"
