8. Plenty of personalities in and out of the Octagon
Like Dana White, the UFC’s roster is filled with equally as entertaining and outspoken personalities that MMA fans just can’t get enough of.
One of the biggest names in the sport right now is this weekend’s headliner, former top contender Chael Sonnen (pictured right), whose uncanny ability to talk smack has earned him legions of fans (as well as plenty of haters).
When he isn’t calling people out or fighting in the Octagon, Sonnen hosts UFC Tonight alongside retired mixed martial artist and Boston area native Kenny Florian (left), who’s also a pretty popular figure in the sport.
Each division has its own cast of characters, but there are also plenty of people who don’t fight at all that fans still love. From ring girls such as Arianny Celeste and Brittney Palmer to comedian and color commentator Joe Rogan, there’s no shortage of personalities in the UFC.
