Following in the footsteps of fellow UFC Octagon girls Rachelle Leah and Arianny Celeste, Brittney Palmer will grace the March cover of Playboy which hits newsstands this Friday, February 17th. The 24-year-old Las Vegas native and former WEC ring girl will also have an 8-page nude pictorial in the magazine, as well as on Playboy.com. Palmer becomes the third UFC Octagon girl to pose nude for the extremely popular magazine. Former Octagon girl Rachelle Leah was featured in Playboy in the November of 2008 edition and current Octagon girl Arianny Celeste was featured two years later in the November 2010 edition. Palmer, who recently enrolled in art school, explained her decision to pose nude to a fancy elite figure-drawing class. In the Playboy press release Palmer says, ''I take figure-drawing classes every day. Ninety-nine percent of the time there's a nude model in your class - it's beautiful and it's art. I really enjoy drawing nudes. I think women's bodies are fantastic, and I work my ass off for my body. I have such appreciation for being in Playboy - it's like being a model for an elite figure-drawing class.'' Palmer's pictorials were shot by Steve Shaw.
