Former UFC Octagon Girl Natasha Wicks training for 2016 Summer Olympics

And if hotness was an official category, she'd already have a dozen gold medals.

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Octagon Girl Natasha Wicks, who was an avid runner and collegiate athlete before breaking her butt (literally), is returning to the sport she loves to make a serious "run" at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

From her interview with Las Vegas Sun:

I still stay pretty involved in the MMA industry, and I'm actually ring girl-ing again now for the new, biggest, all-women's MMA organization -- Invicta Fighting Championships -- so I still do it, I still model, I still do all that stuff, but my running has become my main focus, my main passion.

Now I'm in serious training for the 2016 Olympics in Brazil. My goals are to compete on a national and world level in the 5K, 10K and half-marathon and dominate the Olympic trials and then place in the Top Three at the Olympics.

Wicks was the winner of the UFC Octagon Girl search back in 2009 but parted ways with the company shortly thereafter, where she focused on modeling, appearing in magazines like Maxim and Fight! as well strutting her stuff as a Bunny at the Playboy Club in Las Vegas, Nevada.
