She told BBC Radio 4: "You need somebody to present the prizes and it should be professional, and it should look good. It has to be pretty for the cameras, but men can be beautiful too.
UFC's website has pictures of some of the octagon girls from around the globe, one description accompanying a photo reads, "the long black hair, charming smile and curves of Camila Oliveira are jaw dropping".
The Women's Sport Trust says the problem with using models alongside sport is "the message it gives about how women are valued in society". Its statement added: "Sport mirrors and magnifies society.
If we depict women in sport in a way that reinforces a narrow stereotype, we add to the pressure young girls in particular feel to look and act a certain way.
British freelance sportswriter Leigh Copson is a keen UFC follower, along with his year-old daughter, who has been inspired by the female fighters rather than the women parading outside the ring.
He said: "Women have been much more than eye candy in MMA for a while now - former mixed martial artist Ronda Rousey's the reason my little girl does karate and kickboxing.
UFC said it did not wish to comment on whether it would be reconsidering the use of octagon girls. Although far more prevalent in the US, cheerleaders do make appearances in UK sport including football, rugby and cricket.
Zoe Rutherford, managing director of The London Cheerleaders, says cheerleading is often misunderstood: "It's a real shame that it is linked with the idea of shaking pom poms and looking pretty.
Crystal Palace Football Club has released a statement in defence of its own cheerleading squad, the Crystals.
A spokeswoman said, in addition to raising money for good causes, the cheerleaders contributed to the "unique atmosphere inside the stadium".
Susie Wolff: 'Grid girls' did not offend me but F1 ban is a step in the right direction. Why does cycling have podium girls?
But for some the move is just the tip of the iceberg. These feminists look down their noses at glamour-model jobs, yet it is unlikely they have any actual experience of this world.
How many of these women, who are so offended by walk-on girls, actually watch the darts or Formula 1?
All this demonstrates is that this debate really boils down to a matter of taste. Offended feminists argue that having walk-on girls and grid girls objectifies women.
But the women who did those jobs say they never felt objectified, which surely should be taken on board? It seems not. The offended few loftily assume that they know better than these women, and that their views are the ones that should shape society.
To call yourself a feminist while cheering as a woman loses a job she loves is pure hypocrisy. In the past feminists fought for women to have the right to make their own life choices without society dictating to them.
Today, pious middle-class feminists have taken on precisely that old, genuinely outdated role of dictating to women whose life choices they disapprove of.
