The best storyline right now in the UFC? Ronda Rousey and Ring Girl Arianny Celeste continue to beef with one another. The latest grenade lobbed in this war of words occurred Saturday in Dallas at UFC 171 where Rousey held court with the media. She was asked about the criticism she has received lately over comments about beating Floyd Mayweather and that led to Ronda bringing up recent grenades from Celeste.
The UFC Octagon Girl hurled several verbal jabs in Rousey’s direction on Friday during an appearance on MMAjunkie Radio. Celeste admittedly isn’t a fan of Rousey’s behavior, specifically the way she parades around as a potential role model to young girls.
“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.”
And this from Saturday night:
Best storyline ever. UFC fighter verbally jabbing with Octagon Girl. Doesn’t get much better than this. The bad news for Dana White is that this is actually happening. You want Ronda pissed off at an actual fighter. This is good for headlines, but it obviously doesn’t sell PPVs.
Kudos to the MMA media for laughing at Ronda for making fun of Arianny for being a dumb bimbo with implants.
