The knockout stunner who made her debut in the premier MMA organization back in 2006 is back where she rightfully belongs: the FHM cover.
Arianny returns for her second round with FHM Philippines, having appeared for the first time on our cover back in May 2012. As you can see here, she has not lost any ounce of power in terms of delivering THE SEXY—and she's promising more powerful blows inside the magazine. We were able to catch up with the pound-for-pound sexiest round card-bearer when she was here for the first-ever UFC show in Manila.
She's gone quite far in her ringside career, so naturally we asked her how things were when she got into the scene:
"When I started, it was the old-school people: Chuck Liddell, Tito Ortiz, BJ Penn. I miss those guys, but at some point they had to retire. It was really cool to see them start the whole UFC craze."
In a manner of speaking, her beauty has outlasted those guys' toughness—and she's seen the UFC grow in front of her very eyes:
"It’s amazing to see the company grow as much as it has and as fast as it has. I still miss the old-school feel of it, but it’s a business that’s growing every day. It’s an opportunity for these amazing talented fighters to make a living doing what they love, so that’s pretty cool."
Naturally, there'll come a time when Arianny herself would have to step down—a thing she admits herself:
"I don’t see myself doing this for the rest of my life. I love the UFC—it has been an amazing platform for me—but there’s going to be a point where I have to move on. You know how it is."
Until then though, we'll enjoy the way she circles that Octagon while simultaneously making sure that she is immortalized on the cover of this magazine. #FHMUltimateArianny
