In a match of brute will and zealous drive, where two sweaty, yet focused individuals claw and bite for that extra advantage, ring girls present a nice relief for the eyes and the souls of viewers.
Female fighters, on the other hand, need no relief and become sexier with every vicious punch and high-pitched kick.
Aesthetically pleasing, these girls have a unique effect on the crowd as the two fighters seem inclined to prove their worth to the women walking around the ring.
One question still remains though.
Who's sexier, the UFC or the Strikeforce girls?
Here is the match between Strikeforce and UFC girls.
Strikeforce understands how to pace, it's a long match.
They surprisingly decide to send a fighter out first rather than a ring girl.
After becoming the new Women’s Welterweight Champion in 2010, Dutch MMA fighter Marloes Coenen assures Strikeforce a steady start.
She must get a sell-out crowd every match.
Ali Sonoma makes the UFC look good in the first round.
She says she "caught the modeling bug" after starting her career at 16 years old.
Bug doesn't seem like a fitting word to describe her condition.
Hopefully there's no antidote.
Strikeforce makes it clear that they aren't messing around.
Known as their secret weapon, Maysa Quy is the ultimate team player.
This sexy ring girl certainly has fans, most likely including many fighters.
She naturally has a strong effect on most matches.
Edith Labelle may have been let go as one of the Octagon ring girls but her pictures continue to go viral.
Men want her and women want to be her.
She gives UFC an early advantage.
While she may be a former Strikeforce ring girl, Alexia Lei still garners plenty of attention as the face of KNOXX Performance Gear.
She is helping Strikeforce gain an edge in the rankings.
Be patient, UFC has an offense of its own.
Rachelle Leah is known for her effect on the sport.
This Octagon girl loves being the face of the UFC.
So far it's been a tight battle as neither team has taken a clear lead.
These girls are clearly ready to fight.
The Strikeforce ring girls may be beautiful but they are also fierce.
It may say Tapout on her attire but this girl doesn't experience many of those.
In a match against her male opponents, she often fights until they quit.
They never want to quit.
Strikeforce ring girls may be in the shadow of the Octagon girls but they are far from shy.
Yearning to make a name for themselves, they parade around the ring in search of attention and exposure.
Perhaps classy isn't the ideal word.
Featured on "The Girls Next Door," this model made a guest appearance as an Octagon girl at UFC 100.
She completed quite a lineup that included Arianny Celeste, Edith Labelle and Logan Stanton.
The fans certainly weren't coming to see the fight that night.
The Skyy is the limit.
While she has modeled for MMA Magazine, Xyience, Cage Candy, Shark Angel Ring Girl and Hawaiian Tropic, Natalie Skyy's work in Strikeforce has helped her gain the most exposure.
She was up for World MMA Award’s Ring Girl of the Year in 2010 and is currently helping her team fight for a win in this brutal match of beauty.
A former Playboy bunny, Chandella Powell became a UFC ring girl in 2010 and hasn't looked back, except to check herself out.
She is a welcomed addition to an already stellar squad.

That is one lucky man.
Brittney Palmer pictures never get old.
When the WEC merged with the UFC, this ring girl joined the organization and fans have been jumping for joy ever since.
The UFC gets a significant advantage with this one.
Speaking of getting noticed.
Kelli Hutcherson recently did a photo shoot with Maxim and continues to have her pictures spread around the Internet.
She will do whatever it takes to succeed on the big stage.
In a last second attempt, the UFC sends out this beauty.
Known as Arianny Celeste's best friend, Anne Rivera helps form a sexy tandem.
They must have amazing chemistry while holding up those cards around the ring.
Did we mention that Corrissa Furr won the ring girl contest with 904 votes?
She made her debut during the Arnold Sports Festival and seemed more than ready.
Fans were ready as well.
According to a vote, 77 percent of viewers experience a first impression of curiosity after looking at this Octagon girl.
Logan Stanton has plenty of experience despite being let go and has helped the UFC garner more attention.
While she may not work there anymore, her pictures are still floating around.
Do these ring girls even have a crucial role in Strikeforce?
The answer is irrelevant considering the pleasure that fans get from looking at them.
These Strikeforce girls know what it takes.
Arianny Celeste and Edith Labelle combine to form a breathtaking combination.
We still can't believe that the UFC let Labelle go.
They did realize one thing...
Celeste is all they need.
Don't let the innocent and sexy look fool you, MMA fighter Gina Carano will literally eat your face.
Known as Crush to American Gladiator fans, Carano uses beauty to distract her opponents and brute force to finish them off.
Essentially she is unbeatable.
Amber Nicole seems to have a fun time doing photo shoots, always featuring a slight, yet excited smile and a laid back posture.
Do fans even look at the cards when the girls hold them up?
No, didn't think so.
Former Strikeforce girl Theresa Trujillo apparently finished in the top ten of the 2010 Hooters International Pagaent last year and it's easy to see why.
She continues to help Strikeforce's sex appeal.
While she appears to be strong, Celeste is most likely holding up a light cardboard cutout of this medal for the camera.
They may believe they have won but this match isn't quite over.
Fans would love to see the ring girls hold up the belts before the fighters do.
She is "very experienced," according to her profile on ModelMayhem.com.
A new regular in the Strikeforce lineup, Brittany Kirk is ready to live up to the expectations.
Nice to see a new face that can establish herself as an important part of the team.
With their last push towards the finish line, the UFC sends Arianny Celeste into the ring.
Sending their sexiest ring girl into the fight assures them a victory in this epic matchup for the history books.
Future students will learn about this day in their textbooks and admire the comeback.
Now you decide for yourself.
