Introducing one very important reason to watch men pummel each other to pieces on UFC: all-American Octagon girl Brittney Palmer.

Ordinarily, Brittney can be seen patrolling the perimeter of the Octagon cage, holding up a bit of card with a number on it between rounds of face-smashing action.

It’s enough to have you stuffing your face with apple pie and waving a Stars and Stripes banner with pride, as this next-level-sexy behind the scenes video from her FHM shoot so beautifully demonstrates.

To see much, much more of the Vegas-born beauty’s exclusive shoot, pick up a copy of the December issue of FHM, out now!
