Top 20 Hottest MMA WAGs

The rapidly growing world of mixed martial arts (MMA) continues to excite fans with incredible displays of strength, agility, and mastery of complex fighting techniques. We watch in awe as men and women of various weight classes enter the cage to do battle, testing their skill at kickboxing, wrestling, jiu-jitsu, or any number of hand-to-hand combat styles. Our eyes widen and jaws drop as we watch a brutal roundhouse kick send someone crashing to the ground, or a rear naked choke threaten to render an opponent unconscious. We delight in these near-barbaric exchanges, cheering for more blood, rewarding the most devastating submission or the fastest knockout. But we often forget that these athletes are people just like us, with families and loved ones that look on with trepidation, perhaps holding their breath each time their fighter enters the octagon.

Indeed, more than any other sport, the burden falls heavy on the wives and girlfriends (WAGs) of MMA fighters. One can only imagine the difficulty of watching a loved one literally risk their life each time they step into the ring to do work. These women are counted on to provide a bedrock of support day in and day out, and they do so with incredible levels of style and grace. This post is an homage to these dedicated supporters but, of course, it would be foolish to ignore the fact that, like many WAGs of professional athletes, these ladies represent some of the best looking women around.

Of course, beauty is subjective, but we have developed certain standards that allow for the elevation of certain people possessing basic physical qualities. This top 20 ranking represents one man's own subjective interpretation based on the rather limited pool of candidates made visible by the internet. But you aren't here to read my musings on beauty; you're here for these lovely ladies. Without further ado, the 20 hottest MMA WAGs:

Middleweight champion Chris Weidman rose to notoriety after defeating the seeming invincible Anderson Silva. Now he’s a common household name among UFC enthusiasts. But he credits his rise to success to his wife, mother of his children, “his rock,” Marivi. The two have known each other since high school and were married in 2009. Weidman was very emotional in an interview with Ariel Helwani about her, saying:

Lisette Gadzuric has some experience dating major athletes as she was previously married to NBA player Dan Gadzuric. Now she’s entered the world of MMA, dating former lightweight champion Anthony Pettis. When she’s not showing off her stunning looks at UFC events, Lizette is very active in the non-profit sector, working with multiple charities. The mother of two splits her time living in both Milwaukee and just outside of Las Vegas.

10 Miesha Tate

Miesha Tate may be a fighter herself, but she is also dating a fellow fighter, Bryan Caraway. While Tate has been unsuccessful in her battles with Ronda Rousey, she has still become a big name in the women's division, particularly because of her long standing feud with the Bantamweight champ. Tate is peeved that she's not the current no.1 contender, but it seems like only a matter of time before she gets another shot at Rousey.

1 Brittney Brannagan

This knockout model has been dating flyweight fighter Ian McCall for the last couple of years and the UFC world is better for it. Though Brannagan is a couple of inches taller than the mustachioed McCall, the only thing anyone notices is her incredible physique. Brannagan is proof that the little guys in the UFC can still land some of the hottest women in the world.
