UFC President Dana White is featured in the Jan. 2011 issue of Playboy along with Ryan Bader (#7 Light Heavyweight), Junior dos Santos (#7 Heavyweight), Vitor Belfort (#4 Middleweight), Stephan Bonnar (#26 Light Heavyweight) and Jon Jones (#9 Light Heavyweight). The group took part in the “Stand Tough” fashion pictorial in which they modeled looks from Calvin Klein, Hugo Boss and Tommy Hilfiger among others. Belfort will fight next at UFC 126 on Super Bowl weekend, where he will challenge Anderson Silva (#1 Middleweight) for the UFC Middleweight Championship. Bader and Jones will also meet on that card in a fight that will likely determine the number one challenger for the light heavyweight title.
This isn’t the first time the UFC has garnered coverage from the gentleman’s magazine. Playboy previously featured Octagon girls Rachelle Leah and Arianny Celeste on the cover and has interviewed White on several occasions.
