There are many reasons for the exponential growth of the UFC but chief among them are the outrageously talented fighters who compete inside the famous octagon.

Fighters like Conor McGregor, Georges St-Pierre and Anderson Silva have become massive stars through their exploits in the UFC.

But, anything the men can do, the UFC’s women can do just as well.

Women’s MMA is growing fast as it balances the mammoth levels of physical and mental strength required to win and a certain level of glamour unmatched by the men.

So, let’s have a look at some of the biggest female fight stars as we count down the 10 sexiest women in the UFC.

1 – Ronda Rousey

Every female UFC star of the present and future owes a debt of gratitude to Ronda Rousey.

The American became a bona fide superstar who appeared in movies and advertising campaigns thanks to her dominant performances in the UFC.

The mixture of fearsome warrior in the octagon and beauty and class outside of it mean she remains a hugely popular sports star despite some humiliating defeats in UFC in more recent times.

2 – Paige VanZant

It’s not hard to see why Paige VanZant has so many fans. The 23-year-old’s UFC debut won the Fight of the Night award and gave all fight fans a glimpse of her aggressive grappling and accurate striking game.

VanZant’s popularity grew even further when she appeared on Dancing with the Stars and MMA fans are eagerly awaiting her return to the octagon to improve on a 7-3 record.

3 – Michelle Waterson

With a Instagram account titled ‘karatehottiemma’ you know that Michelle Waterson is far from the shy and retiring fans.

As well as keeping her 380,000 + Instagram followers entertained with a mix of personal and fighting shots, Waterson is also one of the top 10 fighters in the UFC Strawweight division having made the transition from ring girl to fighter.

4 – Joanna Jedrzejczyk

They make them tough in Poland and Joanna Jedrzejczyk has capitlaised on every inch of her toughness.

The current UFC Women’s Strawweight Champion is widely regarded as the number one pound-for-pound female MMA fighter in the world.

Things move quickly at the top of the UFC but Jedrzejczyk could well be set for a prolonged period of dominance.

5 – Holly Holm

There is not much about fighting that Holly Holm doesn’t know. She was a multiple-time world champion boxer and an accomplished kickboxer before entering the world of MMA where she took the UFC by storm.

The former UFC Bantamweight Champion was the woman who put an end to Ronda Rousey’s dominance in the sport in one of the biggest upsets in UFC history. Never one to rest on her laurels, Holm is targeting more UFC success.

6 – Julianna Peña

Julianna Peña was born in Spokane, Washington but she is rightly proud of her Venezuelan heritage.

Known as the Venezuelan Vixen, the early stages of Peña’s professional MMA career were nothing to really write home about but she really came to prominence when becoming the first woman to win the Ultimate Fighter.

After those highs, Peña’s had issues in and out of the octagon but she is fighting hard to get back to the top of the sport.

7 – Cláudia Gadelha

Cláudia Gadelha doesn’t have the sort of beaten up, weary face that you’d expect from a fighter with as much experience as her.

The Brazilian had to fight very early in life due to a tough upbringing but she went on to channel that fight to reach the UFC, the highest level of professional MMA.

Gadelha’s reputation has improved along her UFC journey where she has reached number one in the official Strawweight rankings.

8 – Randa Markos

It’s no surprise that Randa Markos is a tough cookie – she was once held at gun point and imprisoned for trying to flee her native Iraq during the Gulf War.

Markos has taken the positives from that tough start to life and the opportunities presented to her in her new home of Canada to become a quality competitor in the UFC’s Strawweight division.

Quiet Storm, as she is now, has a growing set of fans and is targeting big things as she reaches the peak of her career.

9 – Rose Namajunas

If you walked past Rose Namajunas in the street you wouldn’t necessarily think that she fitted the nickname ‘Thug’. Watch her in the octagon and you get a different impression entirely.

Proficient in both Brazilian jiu-jitsu and taekwondo, Namajunas made her way onto te UFC through the Ultimate Fighter and has scored some stunning wins including against Michelle Waterson thanks to a beautifully executed rear-naked choke.

10 – Karolina Kowalkiewicz

Karolina Kowalkiewicz has had a career in MMA since she was 16. Over the years she’s amassed great experience which has served her well since singing with the UFC in 2015.

After an impressive first few fights, Kowalkiewicz was given a title shot against fellow Polish fighter, Joanna Jędrzejczyk but was beaten in a unanimous decision.

Kowalkiewicz is now regrouping after another defeat but happily she is set to stay a part of the UFC for some time to come.
