Meet MMA Stunner Shannon Ihrke

I had the pleasure of meeting today's featured MMA stunner at the ProElite: Big Guns event in Moline, IL a few weeks ago and learned quite a few interesting things about her.  This 23 year old blonde bombshell is 5'8", 115 lbs, measures 34-23-34 and currently calls the Quad Cities area home.  Shannon has ring carded for Bartenders Brawl at Joe's Bar in Chicago, IL, for ProElite: Big Guns in Moline, IL and will for King of the Cage on December 10th at Northern Lights Casino in Walker, MN.  Her favorite MMA fighter is GSP hands down!  Shannon looks up to the UFC welterweight champion because of his amazing cardio, effective jab, his humbleness and his professionalism.  Andre Arlovski quickly became another of Shannon's favorites after ring carding for his most recent fight, being a great entertainer in the cage while also remaining very professional outside the cage.

Shannon exploded onto the modeling scene about two years ago which has seen her appear on several calendars including a pin-up for Zebra Publishing, a tequila calendar for next year and numerous work for catalogs and print.  What really opened our eyes was her recent appearance in the December issue of Maxim Magazine for their 2011 Hometown Hottie Contest because she is currently a top ten finalist!!  Voting for the 2011 Maxim Hometown Hottie ends December 5th so make sure to vote daily here!  Shannon will also be featured as Miss June in the 2012 Maxim Calendar.

Are you ready for another crazy awesome fact we learned about Shannon?  Shannon is currently an active duty Sergeant (E-5) in the United States Marine Corps!  She also trains in the Marine Corps martial arts program.  Tough and sexy!!  With her military commitment ending soon Shannon will primarily focus on her modeling and some exciting work with Decorum Consulting.

Thank you again for your time Shannon and we look forward to having you back on our pages at Babes of MMA soon!  For more on Shannon be sure to check her out on Facebook, Twitter and Model Mayhem.
