    Joe Rogan's website message board has uncovered some four-year old photos of current UFC ring card girl Chandella Powell. I haven't seen them and won't be posting them here so if you are so inclined you will have to look at them at his site. Apparently they are not softcore and could be the end of female Danny Glover's UFC career--there might (or might not) be a line that the UFC (and new partner FOX) don't want to cross with pornography being associated with their product. Other ring card girls Arianny Celeste and Brittney Palmer have also dabbled in adult entertainment, with Celeste recently posing in Playboy and Palmer set to do so as well. Palmer was a burlesque dancer in Las Vegas. A few other former ring card girls have posed nude in the past.

    lol @ the idea of a Joe Rogan forum existing and having members.

    Cursory search yields no results. I don't want to join Joe Rogan's forum, they'll probably get more easily available by the end of today.

    I feel bad for her though. It was her decision to do it (if true) and completely within her right. Now its been uncovered and could it could cost her her job, which is itself not far off from pornography on most levels. Seems like something FOX would really push for though.

    The thread was removed from his website and a similar thread from the UG. Seems damage control is underway.

    Edit: a cursory search for her porn pseudonym "Mariah Ashton" with bring up the very NSFW results. Be forewarned.

    This thread has almost 1000 views in less than 12 hours. The Diaz/Condit PPV thread has 700. I guess the internet really is for porn.

    An image search for "Mariah Ashton porn" will introduce you to her and her friend.

    But I agree it is hardly as big a deal as its being made out to be.

    Nobody is talking about this so I guess it's NBD. Not Dana, not the UFC, not Helwani or any respected reporter, not any of the mainstream MMA blogs and websites--no one.

    Apparently Chandella was conspicuously absent at the UFC on Fuel weigh-ins last night. Doesn't bode well.

    Perhaps FOX doesn't want her on any of their programming?

    Another scenario is that the UFC may treat her like they do with some fighters who have issues; "fire" her, leading to a natural conclusion to the story and then re-hire her not long after with relatively little fan fare (see: Miguel Angel Torres). Hell, in the meantime she could go do some other modelling work and try to build up her own brand and everyone wins.

    More than likely, they gave her the event off so the press wouldn't hound her with questions if the ring girls go to do any of the pressers as eye candy?

    Middle Easy.com says she's fired for not disclosing her former career to the UFC, hence her absence last night.
