Leah appeared in a previous edition of Playboy when she was featured as the "Babe of the Month" in the October 2006 edition of the magazine, though she was clothed for the one-page feature.
However, Leah will reportedly bare all for her latest appearance in the magazine, which is expected to come out in three months.
Leah, 23, is a model and former paramedic student who was once the UFC's most recognizable ring girl. However, she turned in her booty shorts and began hosting episodes of "UFC All Access," the UFC's official event preview show, in early 2006. She was recently ranked 76th in FHM's "100 Sexiest Women in the World 2008" feature.
Despite a less-visible role with the UFC, Leah remains one of the most-searched UFC personalities on MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) and throughout the Web.
