Edith Labelle Get to know EX UFC’s 5-foot-8 Canadian Beauty


Find out what turns her on, how she stays fit and the difference between American and Canadian guys.

How do you stay in such great shape?
Edith: I watch what I eat and work out at least 4 times a week.

Do you have any sports you play when you’re not working out?
I like rollerblading in the summer and scuba-diving when I get a chance. I am also thinking of taking up Muay-thai boxing.

How do you motivate yourself to go to the gym?
It’s easy. Knowing I have to get up in front of millions of UFC fans worldwide in a revealing outfit is motivation enough, but I would train regardless because I like to feel fit and take care of myself.

What’s was the most exciting aspect of being an Octagon girl?
Having a front-row seat to the most exciting sport ever—MMA.

Have you met a lot of celebrities as an Octagon girl?
Being a huge UFC fan , the chance to meet all the UFC fighters in person is a real thrill of a lifetime. All the guys are really friendly (outside of the Octagon) and I am really happy that I have had a chance to get to know George St-Pierre. He’s a great guy.

What’s your guiltiest pleasure?
I have a sweet-tooth, especially for chocolate desserts—but I never indulge more than once a week.

What’s the first physical characteristic you notice in a guy?
Hmm . . . hard to decide. There’s not one thing in particular. I’ll notice a guy who is the complete package. Fit, but not too buff.

You’re originally from Canada. What’s the biggest difference between American guys and Canadian guys?
American guys are more intense and Canadian guys seem to be more laid-back.

How can a guy win you over?
I know its cliché but he has to be a gentleman and he has to be able to make me laugh.

Would you ever date a fighter? Why or why not?
I think it would be too hard for me to watch my boyfriend or husband take punches and kicks . . . even the winners get hit.

Do you have a favorite song you workout to?
I like to listen to house music when I work-out.

What’s your favorite movie? Why?
The Notebook. Because I adore love stories—especially the ones that make you cry.

Would you ever fight? If so, who would you most want to step into the Octagon with?
I am not thinking of starting a career as an MMA fighter anytime soon if that’s what your asking, but if you hurt anyone in my family or that I love, I’ll drag you into that Octagon so fast your head will spin.

Your Octagon Girl profile says you enjoy skydiving. How many times have you jumped?
Three times so far. I can’t wait to go again. I love the adrenaline rush.

What is it like to jump out of an airplane?
Kinda like jumping out of a tree, but a lot higher. Just kidding. You gotta try it to know.

Your bio says that you want a career in real estate. Where would you build your dream house and why?
I would have a small home in the Bahamas for the winters and spend my summers in Montreal. Its a crazy fun city in the summer with all the festivals and the night-life, and all my friends are family are here.

Tell me three things that not too many people know about you.
1) I’m a great listener.
2) I love animals, especially my little Yorkshire, Chico.
3) Although I would never do it in front of people because I am a lady and have manners, I can burp really, really loud when I am alone.

“Nate Marquardt Will Never Fight In The UFC Again” – Dana White


Former UFC middleweight contender Nate Marquardt was not medically cleared Saturday by the Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission, and has been scratched from his welterweight fight on Sunday against Rick Story.

Shortly after Marquardt failed his prefight medical exam, UFC president Dana White announced that the fighter had been released from the promotion.

“I’m sure you’ve heard that Nate Marquardt is out. It’s true. He failed his medicals,” White said on a video blog. “Not only is he out of this fight and out of the main event on Versus, he will no longer be with the UFC.”

“I think it’s pretty clear to the fans and everyone else that I’m disgusted with Nate Marquardt. He’s been cut by the UFC and he won’t fight for the UFC again. Bottom line: What Nate Marquardt did is bad enough to be cut by the UFC…. He has no business fighting in the UFC…. This is one of those situations where, because of the laws in Pennsylvania, Nate Marquardt is going to have to man up and tell the world why he didn’t pass. And when he does, I think everyone will understand why he was cut from the UFC.”

Story will now face Pennsylvania’s own Charlie Brenneman in the co-feature.

“Nate recently reported on Facebook and Twitter “NathanMarquardt Nate Marquardt
I will personally be addressing all issues regarding my medicals, etc this Tuesday.”

We will see what he has to say for himself.

Dave Herman vs. John Olav Einemo – WOW! VIDEO UFC 131

Hands down one of the best fights I have ever seen! Check out Dave Herman vs. John Olav Einemo. Heavy hits and NON STOP action.

UFC 131 Fight of the Night: Dave Herman and Jon Olav Einemo paired up in a back-and-forth heavyweight tilt that saw both men in trouble on more than one occasion. Herman battered Einemo with knees to drop him late in the second round and draw the TKO stoppage. The five years spent at Golden Glory didn’t show in Einemo’s stand-up. It was good news for him, though, as he would have lost to Carwin much faster and not picked up the additional $70k.
