Glamorous Aussie UFC star Casey O'Neill sells feet pics online in-between maintaining her unbeaten mixed martial arts record.
The 25-year-old Scottish-born fighter will make her Octagon return this Saturday as she faces Jennifer Maia on the main card of UFC 286 at the O2 Arena in London. British fight fans are set for an action-packed event headlined by the trilogy bout between Leon Edwards and Kamaru Usman as the former makes the first defence of his welterweight title.
12th ranked flyweight contender O'Neill will be hoping to move up the rankings by beating Maia after recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

When not training for her fights, King Casey also sells snaps of her feet online, with fans able to purchase the pics via a link attached to her Instagram account.
O'Neill's 126,000 followers are also treated to a blend of glamourous snaps and pictures from training as well as behind the scenes footage from her fights.
After spending her early childhood in Kilmarnock, O'Neill moved down under with her family at the age of 10 before launching her MMA career.
Who will be the next British-born UFC champion? Let us know in the comments section below.
She now has a 9-0 professional record, with four of those wins coming in the UFC, most recently at UFC 271 last February where she beat Roxanne Modafferi via split decision.
Prior to tearing her ACL, O'Neill had been due to return to the Octagon in July, but her injury forced her scheduled bout with former title challenger Jessica Eye to be scrapped.
It is no surprise O'Neill has made a splash in the UFC after being kicked out of football teams in her youth for being "too aggressive".
She opened up on turning her back on football in 2021, telling Give Me Sport: "I mean, to be honest, I haven't really watched football since I left.
"I was a massive Rangers fan growing up, and I played football for a long time, both in Scotland and in Australia, until I got kicked off of every single team within driving range of Australia for being too aggressive."
UFC fans can catch O'Neill on the main card at UFC 286 as she goes in search of a 10th career victory against number eight ranked Brazilian Maia.
The event is the first numbered card on British soil since Michael Bisping defended his middleweight title against Dan Henderson at UFC 204 in 2016.
