Brittney Palmer is at UFC 249, but unlike normal events, she's the only ring girl working the event. Obviously this is a result of the unique nature of the event, with no crowd and attempted social distancing, but it's odd to see her working alone.

She appeared to be upbeat about the situation backstage before the event:

And she agreed and obliged:

The 32-year-old Palmer has been a UFC staple for nearly a decade. Having her in attendance has given a weird event a sense of normalcy.
