Monique Minton - IFBB Bikini Pro

Updated on May 12, 2017

Monique Minton Ricardo - Female Fitness Model, IFBB Bikini Pro and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Practitioner

This gorgeous young lady is female fitness model, IFBB Figure Competitor, IFBB Bikini Pro and possible future MMA fighter Monique Minton Ricardo.

Monique is the reigning queen on my Asian fitness blog, holding the number one slot since May of 2009.
(Well she was...until Blogger decided to delete the blog...thanks Blogger!)

She gets her exotic looks from her half Filipina, half Polish heritage.
Monique has been on the cover of the 2009 March-April Muscle & Fitness Hers magazine, and she's appeared on the cover of Flex magazine twice.
So far.

She is five foot, ten inches tall and weighs one hundred and fifty pounds.

Monique in MMA?

As far as a possible mixed martial arts career, well a lot of that is conjecture on my part, but she is currently studying Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Muay Thai.
At Naga Europa (The North American Grappling Association), "Momo" won a gold medal in the no gi division while she was working as a bikini girl at the BSN (Bio-Engineered Supplements & Nutrition) booth in the expo going on next door!
Can you imagine what effect Monique Minton could have on MMA?
Move over Ronda Rousey.....
