Found February 29, 2012 on Busted Coverage:

The UFC returned to Japan for the first time in over a decade, and the promotion pulled out all the stops to keep the Japanese crowd happy. The most important bone thrown at the crowd was a new UFC Ring Girl: Azusa Nishigaki. The name may be a mouthful, but this hottie brought the thunder in the octagon. The gorgeous newcomer more than held her own alongside UFC staple Arianny Celeste. We can only hope Dana White didn’t leave Nishigaki in Tokyo when he left on Sunday. I am sincerely hoping we have found our replacement for the seemingly dethroned Chandella Powell.

And at the rate things are going, Ms. Nishigaki should be expecting a phone call from Hugh Hefner soon enough. That issue would break some records in the Land of the Rising Sun (and at my house!).
