Ariel does some digging and confirmed that Edith is no longer an Octagon Girl, but the why is a little more mysterious:
Labelle could not be reached for comment, but her manager, James Leinhos, confirmed the news with FanHouse on Thursday.
“Something happened,” Leinhos said, “but at this time, I can only confirm that Edith no longer works for the UFC.”
Leinhos would not confirm if Labelle was fired or quit. However, it’s interesting to note that she was present at the UFC 100 weigh-ins, yet absent from the actual event the next day.
Those who worry about these kinds of things believed that the reason behind that decision was simply due to the fact that former Playboy model, Holly Madison, served as an honorary UFC 100 Octagon girl, but apparently something else happened during those 24 hours, leading to Labelle’s tenure as an Octagon girl coming to an end.
I know Arianny has gotten the third degree from UFC brass after they caught her being rude to media and shirking her fan-mixing responsibilities. We’ve always complained that Edith is about as accessible as Hollywood starlet on a coke bender, so that’s a potential cause. Yeah, she also looked like Alanis Morissette’s slutty little sister. But in the end, we’re sensitive personality people here at Fightlinker and all that matters is a little kindness and personality.
