Q:: What has Brittney Palmer been up to these days?

A:: I move to California a couple months ago and I’ve started art school, so I just finished my summer semester. So I been focusing on learning and doing art. And starting my new life in California, surfing as much as I can.

Q:: I see some of your art pieces are on your site, how long have you been doing art?

A:: I’ve always been artistic even as a little girl. Either I was painting or dancing, I was always doing something artistic, but I never took it seriously until about a yea ago when I starting putting together a collection. So I started dedicating some real time into it and then everything started up well. People started to respond to it and really liked it, so I figured really give it a shot so I went to school for it.

Q:: So is this a hobby or something you definitely what to jump into and do?

A:: This is definitely not a hobby. I hope to make a career out of it. Either being an artist myself or being in the art world in some way. I don’t have my name in lights, but I love this industry, I love art… I really have a passion for it. So I definitely want to get serious about it.

Q:: I hear you’re coming back to the UFC one day, is that true?

A:: I never left the UFC. Haha. UFC and I… I’ve been with the company for a really long time and we have a great relationship. I moved here and wanted to focus on art and they wanted to go in another direction for ring girls so it kinda happened at a good time. But it was never a situation of letting me go or me quitting. So the rumormill flies, but I’m still with the company… just taking a little time off to focus on art.

Q:: Looking back what were some of the best things about being involved with the UFC and WEC?
