After countless clues that signaled the end of Brittney Palmer’s card toting days around the Octagon, which included the removal of her ring girl profile from UFC.com, company president Dana White heard your cries and notified the Twitter universe that the WEC’s former queen bee is still with the company.
For the last several days, it had been heavily rumored UFC 132 on July 4th weekend was the final time Palmer would circle MMA’s most prestigious cage. Although no official announcements were made from either party, Palmer issued numerous cryptic tweets that lead most fans to believe she had been let go.
She posted her most notable message on July 16th by stating, “Thanks for all the good luck wishes! I’m figuring it all out. Life is full of surprises. This will definitely keep me grounded. Over and out.”
Although countless fans sent Palmer messages inquiring about her employment status, Palmer never specifically confirmed or denied she was no longer with the UFC. When word broke this morning she was removed from the company’s official website, Palmer wrote, “Here is an idea let’s start talking about my calendar I’m shooting today! Sooo excited.”
Shortly after that, White was bombarded with messages from hormone-driven teenagers that were dumbfounded by the reports their favorite sign holder was bounced. Moments after that, White claimed she was never released and Palmer’s ring girl profile miraculously reappeared on UFC.com.
