As a well-known octagon girl in the UFC, Brittney Palmer has made the decision to put her shorts away figuratively. She revealed her retirement at the 2023 World MMA Awards, where she received recognition as the “best octagon girl.”
Palmer’s last bout in the UFC octagon will occur at UFC 296 in Las Vegas. It will be held at the T-Mobile Arena. Looking back on her experience, Palmer conveyed her gratitude:
I truly am honored to accept this award. Thank you to the UFC, Fighter’s Only, and all the fans who voted for me.
Well, there’s no better time to say it. But after 16 years with UFC, I’ve decided to retire.
This weekend will be my last event, and I’m so absolutely grateful for this unforgettable experience.

Palmer is renowned for her love of painting and murals, which have drawn attention in addition to her UFC career.
Her desire to dedicate herself full-time to her artistic pursuits is what drove her to decide to retire.
