The UFC ring card girls have an important role in UFC events: they're there to gives us fans a break from having too much testosterone in a two-hour span.
Not only are we treated to at least five minutes of two athletes giving it their all in the Octagon, but we also get to see some of the most beautiful women in the world.
And while some fans will argue as to who's hot and who's not as far as ring girls go, these swimsuit models are certainly worthy of letting us know what round it is.
If you haven't seen the movie Hall Pass, shame on you. First off, it's a decent movie, and secondly, you're missing out on some Nicky Whelan.
Besides her breakthrough role in Hall Pass, Whelan has been featured in numerous magazines and is best known for her work on the show, Neighbors.
From Russia with love indeed.
Irina Shayk has become a mainstay with the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition and was the 2011 cover-girl for the magazine.
Besides being named one of the most beautiful people in the world by numerous media outlets, Shayk is also actively involved in a number of charities.
I'm not sure what they're putting in the water in Russia, but they need to mass produce it.
Anne V has been featured in every SI Swimsuit magazine since 2005 and it's not hard to see why.
Fun fact: The V is short for Vyalitsyna. Yeah I'll just stick to Anne V too.
Esti Ginzburg started her modeling career at age four and has been on a roll ever since.
The Israeli-born model has been featured in a number of magazines including this years SI Swimsuit edition. But don't think this blond beauty is all looks.
In 2009 she was drafted into the Israeli army (IDF) and can definitely be considered armed and dangerously good looking.
If we want peace in the Middle East, get Ginzburg involved in negotiations.
Hilary Rhoda may be from Chevy Chase, Maryland, but I don't think her career is going to end in disaster any time soon.
Rhoda has appeared in the 2009, 2010 and 2011 SI Swimsuit editions. Keep your fingers crossed for 2012!
Vilayna LaSalle is of African-American, Brazilian and French decent. That must be a recipe for beautiful because as you can see, LaSalle has some of the most engaging eyes.
Oh yeah, and everything else is pretty OK too.
You can see LaSalle in numerous music videos and some American films like Epic Movie and Meet the Spartans.
Diora Baird is best known for her work with Guess? magazine.
She's also been a part of FHM, Playboy and Maxim magazine shoots as well. She landed at No. 76 on Maxim's Hot 100 for 2011 and it's no secret why.
If you need to be reminded of Baird's assets, check the "shout" montage in Wedding Crashers.
This British babe makes dealing with all those rainy days in London worth it.
Brook has appeared in numerous ad campaigns for Axe, T-Mobile and Reebok among others. She also produces her own swimwear line, which she models herself.
If there's one good thing about the movie Piranha 3D, Brook is it.
Brooklyn Decker made her breakthrough role in acting with the film Just Go With It.
Although she was a relative unknown to most people beforehand, Decker has been modeling and turning heads for quite some time.
She's currently married to American tennis player Andy Roddick.
C'mon Brook, you can do better.
If imagining Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's accent to go along with her looks isn't hot enough, check out some of her Victoria's Secret modeling.
Being tabbed as the replacement for Megan Fox is no easy task but RHW pulled it off nicely and had us saying "Megan who?" by the end of the film.
She was also named Maxim's hottest woman of 2011 and top 15 on AskMen's 2011's Top 99 Women list.
Bar Refaeli is an Israeli-born model who recently landed a film role in which she plays a psych patient whose doctor becomes obsessed with her.
I think we can see why.
Refaeli made headlines when she skirted her way around enlisting in the IDF.
Instead of focusing on the negatives, let's just focus on the fact that she won't be covered up by fatigues any time soon.
Maria Melilo was supposed to already be a guest ring girl for UFC 134.
Melilo won the Brazilian version of Big Brother and has appeared in numerous magazines.
In an MMA related note, Melilo has trained in jiu-jitsu and boxing. Anyone willing to "play guard"?
I'm not sure how to say "wow" in Polish, but I'm sure saying Joanna Krupa will translate just fine.
Krupa has graced the cover of Maxim and is featured in numerous PETA ads.
If she were a guest ring card girl, we could finally find a hot blond replacement for Natasha Wicks.
The Polish beauty was also named Maxim's "Sexiest Swimsuit Model in the World." Maxim knows how to pick 'em, so who am I to argue?
