Does The UFC 144 Fan Q&A Announcement Featuring Chandella Powell Mean She’s Still Employed?

February 17, 2012 11:37 am by Pedro Carrasco

Yesterday we ran a rumor that UFC ring girl Chandella Powell was released from her duties due to failure to disclose prior adult related work in the on-line entertainment world. This rumor had some validity behind it because a quick google search provides more than enough evidence to corroborate the fact that Miss Powell did in fact do some naughty photography in the past.

While we ran it solely as a rumor, it appeared as if this rumor would soon turn to fact.

However, as we just reported, Chandella Powell is scheduled to make an appearance at next week’s UFC 144 Fan Q&A in Japan.

After looking over the UFC’s schedule of events I received in my email inbox this bit of information caught me off guard.

From a logical standpoint it would make sense to give Chandella another chance. The images portrayed of her prior to her employment are just a tad worse than the Brittney Palmer playboy shoot released today. But then again, if her failure to disclose this information is true, then you can understand the UFC’s side if they did decide to terminate her.

It is unclear if the UFC has just sent out an old agenda for the upcoming fight week that still had Chandella penned as a participant or if she is actually still employed. With this latest news I am leaning towards yesterdays rumor being false. I believe that the best course of thought is to assume Chandella is still employed with the promotion unless we hear otherwise. It was after all, just a rumor that made for some interesting debate and conversation yesterday.

We will continue to follow along with this story as details become clear.
