The Ultimate Fighting Championship will have a new octagon girl for UFC 163: Aldo vs. Korean Zombie beginning with this afternoon’s weigh-ins at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. 25-year-old Brazilian Jhenny Andrade gets the call to serve as the newest ring girl alongside Camila Oliveira for this Saturday’s event.

The full-time model and former journalism student got the offer and couldn’t pass it down.

“It will be great to be a part of this team and to contribute to the brand’s success,” Andrade said, via MMA Junkie. “I’m going to embrace this and do my best for the UFC.

“UFC events are very well organized and glamorous events. People really appreciate and praise the fighters, and I also believe the octagon girls look very pretty up there. I’ve always liked the UFC, and that’s why I immediately said yes to my agency and really wanted to make it work.”

Something tells me that UFC fans are going to enjoy Andrade, who lists UFC 163 headliner Jose Aldo as her favorite fighter, while she does her walks around the cage throughout the event.

So what does Andrade look like? We knew you’d ask:
