“Official FightGirl, Inc. to Release 18 Month Calendar in Collaboration with Tapout / MMA Worldwide Magazine and featuring Ms. Tapout Worldwide

Mixed martial arts fans finally have something other than the latest match to get excited about. Official FightGirl, Inc. announces today the release of the super hot 18 month FightGirl calendar.
FightGirl clothing is the premier clothing line for mixed martial arts female fans. The line, developed by Kristie Brown, meets the needs of female MMA fans from around the world. Kristie Brown noticed a lack of comfortable, casual, sexy apparel for women at various MMA events. Soon after the realization, FightGirl was born. The FightGirl brand has been seen at such major MMA events as Cage Rage in the UK, Art of War, and IFC Caged Combat to name a few.
“I noticed that every martial arts event I attended women had nothing distinguishable to wear. These events are a lot of fun, and I wanted my line to offer women something to wear that would add to the excitement of the event and to show our support for this great sport. FightGirl was born.” Explains FightGirl CEO Kristie Brown.

FightGirl is set to release an 18 month super sexy calendar in association with TapouT / MMA Worldwide Magazine.

The 18 month FightGirl calendar will feature some of the top models in the business, including Ms. Tapout Worldwide, Whitney Harchanko, as well as Adree DeSanti, and Lisa King, “The Black Widow,” from the Fight Girl Reality Series. Some of the photographers include: Tracy Hicks, Onyx Photography, and Photos by Seven.

The calendar will feature new apparel from the FightGirl clothing line, a staple for models and fight fans around the world.

FightGirl apparel is form fitting, stylish, sexy and comfortable. The line includes scoop and v-neck t-shirts, camisoles, tanks, sweatshirts, and boy shorts in a variety of colors and sizes.
Opportunities exist for promoters to have the FightGirl calendar girls at their next event, and models to take part in the phenomenon as well. ”
