In between complaining about the media sensationalizing some of her recent comments, Ronda Rousey took a shot at UFC ring girl Arianny Celeste, ensuring that she would once again make some headlines for her actions.
The tension between Rousey and Celeste began in 2012 when Rousey joked that it would have been nice to rank higher than the Octagon girl in Maxim’s Hot 100. She also took a general shot at all ring girls in another interview that year by saying they don’t have talent.
In a recent interview with MMA Junkie Radio, Celeste responded and said she didn’t like the way Rousey carries herself.
While meeting with the media prior to UFC 171 on Saturday, Rousey brought up Celeste’s comments.
“Like that whole Arianny thing. Those comments from the Maxim thing, that was from like 12 months ago. Did it just take her a year to come up with a comeback? Like why is this coming up now?” Rousey said.
Rousey then was asked how she felt about Celeste’s comments, and she decided to mock the Octagon girl’s intelligence.
“They made grammatical sense, which is good for her,” Rousey said, then laughed.
Rousey clearly just cannot help herself. And she wonders why she remains in the headlines or is a central figure for some of this stuff?

And for the record, the reason why Celeste responded a year later was because it came up during an interview. Rousey should know just as well as anyone that many times headlines are made when people are asked questions, not because they volunteer stuff.
