PASAY, Philippines – The UFC today announced the addition of the company’s first Filipina octagon girl, Red Dela Cruz.

Selected from a pool of Asian applicants, Dela Cruz was formally introduced at today’s “UFC Fight Night 66: Edgar vs. Faber” open workout sessions, which took place at SM Mall of Asia’s Music Hall in Pasay, Philippines.

Dela Cruz will serve alongside longtime octagon girl Arianny Celeste at Saturday’s event, which takes place at the nearby SM Mall of Asia Arena and airs in the U.S. on FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass.

Dela Cruz is a professional model who also previously served as a ring card girl for Guam’s Pacific Xtreme Combat.
