It’s hard to stay beautiful with other beauties constantly and deliberately trying to disfigure your face and your body. And very few female fighters manage to look beautiful in the rings or cages. But in the “peaceful times” some of them turn out to be real models. Moreover, some of them are (or were) professional models. Such a weird combination of fury and femininity attracts professional photographers and editors of men’s and fashion magazines. These professionals managed to make beauties of a few famous female fighters who wouldn't be suspected in belonging to ‘beauty corps’ if they were not famous fighters.

Ranking is a very difficult and subjective task. Here we consider combative beauties which managed to catch eye of professional photographers and glossies. Surprisingly, all of them happened to be ring or octagon Queens, even though there are many pictures of beauty in different combative sports too. We hope they won't be hurt.
Resource "KocoSports" proposed a list of "Top 100 Hottest Women in Combat Sports". But just 19 out of 100 women in the list practice or practiced competitive combat sports, the rest represent show industries - they are professional wrestlers, valets, referees, ring announcers, ring card girls, fitness models, action movie actresses, stuntwomen, gladiator show women, mayhem models, and glamour models posing in boxing gloves. And just two out of nineteen are freestyle wrestlers, the rest are ring or cage fighters (our classification includes only the latter category).
You can get familiar with those 19+ top 100 hottest women in competitive combat sports from the KocoSports classification on our page and compare their classification with ours.
