Terrible news, friends. It looks like UFC has chosen not to renew the contract of famous ring girl Logan Stanton (and Natasha Wicks, bit she’s not germane to this here story). Her contract ended with UFC 107, which took place last week. Rumor is that she’ll be replaced by former Playboy Playmate (is Playmate a proper noun?) Chandella Powell. There’s a tech angle here, believe me, and it has to do with the next UFC game, UFC Undisputed 2010, which is due out next May.
The thing is, Logan did a whole bunch of scenes for the game last week. Clearly those scenes are now useless. So Yukes (the game’s developer) is going to have to either A) pretend this firing didn’t happen and just keep Logan in the game (not likely) or B) spend another bunch of days recording the new ring girl crew. What a giant pain in the neck.
Then again, if I had the UFC license I’d go to the ends of the Earth to keep Dana White and the Fertittas happy. UFC license = money these days.
