Celeb Crush: Ali Sonoma
This former UFC ring girl turned model and actress leaves us speechless, every time.
Originally from St. Louis, MO, Ali currently resides in Miami, FL. At the age of three she began taking tap, jazz, ballet and acrobat classes -- even then she knew that she loved entertaining people. Throughout her childhood she remained interested in dance but also added music, acting, and sports to her list of skills. At the age of 16 she began modeling professionally, and a few years later she appeared in her first film, 'Say Goodnight.'
At 22, she auditioned for a reality show and landed a role as a Ultimate Fighting Championship Octagon girl, which enabled her to travel all over the world. Shortly after, she won two first prizes at the first ever NPC bikini division of women's bodybuilding at the Arnold Classic.
Ali left the UFC in 2007 to pursue acting and modeling opportunities. She dated and was briefly engaged to UFC fighter Diego Sanchez, but they have since parted ways. Ali has since been featured in Muscle and Fitness Magazine alongside Stone Cold Steve Austin, among many other modeling gigs.
