MMA's Most Beautiful Female Fighters

0 of 9

    Today is Valentine's Day. What better way to spend it than spending it with loved ones?

    In the meanwhile, as an avid MMA fan I will take a few minutes out of my day to recognize some of the most beautiful fighters mixed martial arts has to offer.

    A combination of toughness and easiness on the eyes, these women have made a living beating people up and entertaining us with their good looks.

    Let's take a look at the cream of the crop.

Honorable Mentions: The Ring Girls

1 of 9

    The ring girls can not be forgotten on this list. While they may not be professional fighters, they are still beautiful women that deserve some credit.

    Arianny, Brittney, Chandella and the various other women who remind us what round we are in are natural beauties.

    Whether it be the UFC, Strikeforce, Bellator or any other organization, some incredibly hot female lets her presence be known throughout the arena.

Miesha Tate

2 of 9

    When Miesha Tate isn't taking other fighters down with her impressive wrestling skills, she is making people jealous of Bryan Caraway, her professional fighting boyfriend.

    Tate is incredibly beautiful and, like most female MMA fighters, has an awesome body.

    In her interviews, she comes across as a very down to earth person. She is obviously a very cool girl for the fact that she is into MMA.

    Follow her on twitter. The Strikeforce Women's Bantamweight Champion is very good at getting back to fans.

Ronda Rousey

3 of 9

    Speaking of Miesha Tate, her next opponent, Ronda Rousey, happens to be quite the cutie herself. Rousey, as shown in the picture above, has a beautiful smile.

    Rousey is also one of my personal favorites due to her outspokenness, exemplified in some of the personal attacks she has put on disgraced former Strikeforce champion Cyborg Santos.

    All this said, I would be as nice as possible to Rousey. One wrong word and she might snap your arm in one of her patented armbars.

    So why not just be nice to this dangerous beauty?

Gina Carano

4 of 9

    Considered the face of women's MMA (and for good reason), Gina Carano is definitely one of the most beautiful women in combat sports.

    Not only just a great fighter, Carano has also graced us with her presence in the recent movie, "Haywire," as a gladiator in "American Gladiators," and in the computer game, "Red Alert 3."

    She is a very versatile woman, whether acting or pounding you to a bloody pulp.

    But one thing is for certain. Gina is as beautiful as they come.

Felice Herrig

5 of 9

    Felice Herrig is as beautiful as she is goofy (see her twitter for proof).

    Her kickboxing is devastating, but it is fun to watch her fight due to the combination of her beautiful technique and her beauty in general.

    She has a great personality, as she is an entertaining "tweeter" (if that's a real word).

    That doesn't mean she won't beat you up and take your lunch money.

Zoila Gurgel

6 of 9

    Call me a sucker for a nice smile and dark hair, but it cannot be denied that Zoila Gurgel is definitely a beauty among beauties.

    The current Bellator Women's Champion is currently married (sorry fellas) to UFC and Strikeforce veteran Jorge Gurgel.

    Zoila has great striking and is a fun fighter to watch. She is one of the most down to earth people, which greatly complements her good looks.

Michelle Gutierrez

7 of 9

    Michelle Gutierrez is very young in her MMA career, but there is no denying that she is gorgeous.

    A fantastic body, in combination with her beautiful face, makes her very easy to look at.

    I have only had the pleasure of watching three live women's MMA fights, and Gutierrez was involved in one of them (I also saw Miesha Tate win the belt last summer).

    She is an exciting fighter as much as she is beautiful.

Kyra Gracie

8 of 9

    Kyra Gracie is a world class beauty. And a very dangerous one at that.

    Probably the best female grappler in the world, I would avoid doing anything to enrage this hottie. If you do, it may cost you a broken limb or a state of unconsciousness.

    Although she has not fought MMA yet, she has stated that it is her plan in the future to compete in MMA. We will have to wait until then to see this beauty strap on the gloves and take her talent inside the cage.

The Many Other Beauties I Simply Forgot

9 of 9

    There are a number of female MMA fighters whom I have forgotten. This slide is dedicated to them all.

    I could be here all day typing my feelings on how beautiful all these women are, but that would take me all day.

    Valentine's Day is a special day for women especially, and this slide show honors all the women of MMA who entertain us every time they perform for us.
