Just a matter of days before their China debut, the UFC has introduced another Asian guest ring girl who will grace the Octagon at the CotaiArena in Macau.

As revealed on the UFC's official Twitter account, Filipino-Chinese model Jessica Cambensy will be the second of two ring girls featured during UFC on Fuel TV 6:

Anybody want a first look at Jessica C, one of our two Octagon Girls for UFC Macao on  

Professionally referred to as "Jessica C," the 24-year-old model's resume includes projects for Canon, Sharp, Adidas, Clinique, L'Oreal, Max Factor, CosmoGirl, Marie Claire, Chevrolet and lingerie company Wacoal. While guest UFC ring girl Kang Ye-bin hails from Asia, Cambensy is a Chicago-born American.

Cambensy responded on Twitter with a greeting of her own:

I am so grateful for this opportunity! Thanks for all the sweet tweets! Nov.10th    baby woooo🙌☺😘 

Along with UFC: Japan's Azusa Nishigaki—a former Miss Japan contestant and Sengoku ring girl—this makes the third guest Octagon Girl that the UFC has enlisted for their international events.

UFC on Fuel TV 6 is headlined by a main-event bout between former UFC middleweight champion Rich Franklin and former Strikeforce middleweight champion Cung Le, with additional main card fights featuring Thiago Silva, undefeated Stanislav Nedkov, Dong Hyun Kim and Paulo Thiago.

Franklin comes into the fight off a win over MMA legend Wanderlei Silva, who recently defeated Le in a "Fight of the Night" performance during UFC 139 in San Jose.

Le would rebound roughly seven months later with a decision victory over Patrick Cote at UFC 148 in Las Vegas. He currently holds a 1-1 record in the promotion since being called up from Strikeforce, where he accrued a 7-1 record in eight events dating back to 2006.

Le has reportedly been dealing with a broken foot during his training camp, which has hampered him ever since UFC 148.

During an interview on The MMA Hour, Le stated that he wouldn't pull out of the fight because of the injury, despite the pain it was causing him. Citing his Asian fanbase as one key reason for staying in the match, Le called his upcoming bout with Franklin the "most important" of his career.
