Arianny Celeste on Ronda Rousey: I don’t like the way she carries herself

Arianny-CelesteRonda Rousey is incredibly outspoken. Her undefeated record in the octagon and outgoing personality are the main reasons she is such a marketing machine. The latter, however, is why famous UFC ring girl Arianny Celeste is not Rousey’s biggest fan.

Before Rousey defeated Sara McMann on Saturday, Celeste told MMA Junkie Radio that she does not view Ronda as a positive role model for women.

“I don’t really like the way she carries herself,” Celeste said. “I don’t think she’s a good role model for women. I think that women should empower each other and give each other a little pat on the back.

“I’ve personally been talked about by her, and I don’t even know her. I’ve met her twice. She said a couple things in her Maxim interview. A lot of people pointed it out to me, but I didn’t really acknowledge it. … She’s paving the way for women’s MMA, and I’ve made being a UFC Octagon Girl into a career. She should definitely recognize that and be nice.”

The Maxim interview Celeste referred to took place in August 2012, when Rousey joked that it would have been fun to rank higher on Maxim’s Hot 100 list than Celeste.

“It would have been really funny if I’d beaten [UFC Octagon Girl] Arianny Celeste, because that would be like a triathlete coming along and beating the runners in a marathon,” Rousey said at the time. “Like, ‘Ha-ha, it’s your job to show your titties—I do that better than you!’ Maybe next year. She’s only getting older, and I’m reaching my prime.”

As Bloody Elbow pointed out, Rousey also took a shot at ring girls in general during a separate 2012 interview with Sherdog.

“There’s a reason why the ring girls aren’t asked to star in movies, and it’s because they’re pretty but talentless,” Rousey said.

That’s probably reason enough for Celeste to dislike Rousey, and I’m sure Rousey doesn’t care. After all, this is a woman who openly discusses her sex life on talk shows. She doesn’t seem to be concerned with what people think of her.

  • jesuscartmenez

    So i guess being a ring girl with fake tits is setting a better example for young girls…

  • Paul DiRisio

    Sounds like you have some issues.

  • Thomas

    Rousey is the first woman I’ve been tempted to describe as a “tool”.

    The crush is over.

  • Stevon f. Nutt

    give her the option of stepping into the ring and shutting her up

  • Kandylicious

    I agree 100% with Ronda, It`s just too bad Celeste she just don`t like you, and until you can kick her ass who cares what you like or don`t like just try and get over yourself talentless fake tittie girl.

  • Jim Dunn

    Ha! Why is she so proud of being a ring girl? She holds up a big card with a number on it…

    Who really cares about girl fights anyway?

  • smedrano0206

    Yep…used to like her too…now I’m glad I got to see Gina Carano fight before her…she knows how to fight tough in the ring and carry herself positively outside of it

    What a worm. Pathetic points of view, a pretty girl vs. the Tom boy. We all know Rousey would ruin Ariany’s face for life, she should keep it shut. Girls like her are eye candy, nothing more. If she doesn’t like people supporting violent, outspoken women, she should try school; otherwise she’s petty, and envious of a real woman. Stupid model, life can’t be all butterflies and flowers, bunnies and kittens, give me a break, we live in a hard age, models will eventually outlive their time.

    what person with a brain on this planet would care what that girl thinks other than the guy/guys tryin to get some strange or the ufc itself?! shes a glorified stripper or hooker if u really wanna break it down. only strippers can kinda dance i guess and both mention “professions” definitely work harder than that girl. fo sho!

  • duds

    sounds like u dont get it. Or r simply too stupid to realize what Arianny really is

  • Paul DiRisio

    Smarter than you on my dumbest day.
    What is she in your little gay mind? A slut bitch because she is pretty, and can model?
