Lauren's message to the fans:
"I've been a ring girl for the past 4 years. Last year I had the honor of flying over to Mosul, Iraq to be a ring girl for their first MMA event for the Troops. I love MMA and I have a different appreciation for the sport than most girls. My father is an MMA Judge and also an MMA coach. My little brother is an amateur fighter rising to his pro debut sometime later this year. MMA is 24/7 in my home. Please vote for me, a girl who truely appreciates this awesome sport!!!!"
The winner of the contest will be named an official Strikeforce ring girl at the March 5, 2011 event in Columbus, Ohio: Strikeforce - Feijao vs. Hendo.
