I want to make a few things very clear from the outset.
First and foremost, until the last year of my life - weight has been a constant battle for me. If you have followed me on social media for a few years, you know this is the truth and that my weight in the past has been a roller coaster of ups and downs. Anyone who reads this blog and thinks "it's easy for her, she has a great metabolism and is naturally skinny" is DEAD WRONG. You don't know me and the battles I have had with my weight - until now where I have finally found the answers I've been looking for.
I began dieting and exercising when I was 15 years old. All of sudden my weight started to become an issue. I also had a horrific car accident where I was rescued with the "jaws of life", shattered my pelvis in three places and was on crutches for six months - obviously piling on the pounds while sedentary and recovering. Since then, I have busted my butt for ten years on every fad diet and have worked out five or six times per week (many times doing 2 workouts a day!) and often with the best MMA and personal trainers in the world. Regardless of this dedication for ten years - I only just got the body I always worked so hard for - and only in the last 12 months have I finally found the answers that work.
An accomplished artist, spokes model, host, and dancer, Brittney Palmer is a modern day Renaissance Woman. A six-year veteran of the entertainment industry, Brittney’s always been driven by her passion to immerse herself in art, whether it’s the art of painting, music, dancing, or jiu jitsu.
As a featured personality for the past four years, this Ultimate Fighting Championship Octagon Girl is woven into the fabric of the mixed martial arts world. With over 100 million worldwide viewers for each event, Brittney is cage-side, preparing to balance the beasts with her beauty as she readies everyone for the next round of action.
In a sport with very few female personalities, the thousands of sports and entertainment media outlets that cover MMA worldwide everyday seek Brittney’s unique perspective. From her days circling the cage with World Extreme Cagefighting, Brittney has been at the forefront of a sport that’s exploding in popularity across the globe. She’s been featured across a plethora of media, having most recently completed “The Ultimate Fighter Brazil”, with each episode averaging nearly 30 million viewers in Brazil alone.
A professional model and entertainer since the day she turned 18, Brittney was ready for the spotlight. Growing up in Las Vegas, it’s impossible not to gravitate toward the glitz and glamour of the live shows on The Strip.

Painting for the majority of her life, Brittney made the commitment to start her art career by engrossing herself in the epicenter of the art culture: Venice Beach. A self taught artist, she’s attending art school at UCLA in Los Angeles to take her passion to the next level. A flower child at heart, the Woodstock era inspires her collection of acrylics on canvas. Capturing her take on rock and pop cultural icons from the 1960s and ‘70s, her creations have been a big hit from both critics and collectors.
