Inside the luxurious lives of ring girls from the UFC and boxing including Love Island’s Maura Higgins

AFTER ring girl Maura Higgins waltzed into Love Island many fans were desperate to learn about her lifestyle before she entered the villa.

The Irish beauty used to strut her stuff at Bellator MMA events and managed to live the high life as a result.

Bellator is UFC's smaller counterpart but for girls who get a shot at the sport's biggest events, the sky can be the limit.

Exotic modelling shoots, private jets and partying with stars are all regular activities for ring girls of today.

Reports claim the standard salary for a UFC girl is just $20,000-per-year but if the superstars listed below are anything to go by, that seems hard to believe.

RAPID RISE OF THE RING GIRL

Arianny Celeste is the most famous of the lot and the American has a whopping 3.2million Instagram followers and - according to LadBible - is worth a staggering $1million.

Having made her UFC debut in 2006, the brunette made a rapid rise to the top - winning 2008 Ring Girl of the Year at the inaugural World MMA awards before going on to scoop the prize at the next three consecutive events.

She went onto claim the award once more in 2015 before famously getting into a spat with UFC big-timer Ronda Rousey.

Celeste has modelled for Playboy and FHM and regularly posts snaps in exotic locations around the world.

She was also pictured with UFC mega star Conor McGregor who seems set to return to the octagon later this year.

The Londoner was recently pictured guzzling a pint of Guinness after her appearance at UFC London.

Baker was dating cricketer Tom Maynard when he tragically died on June 18, 2012.

Palmer's Instagram - which has an enormous 1.1million followers - showcases the brunette's lavish lifestyle in which she documents her life at glamorous shoots and events across the planet.

Despite the apparent luxurious lifestyle, everything may not be as blissful as it seems for the American.

Because over the past few years her and husband Aaron Zalewski have been caught up in stories of mutual domestic violence.
