Arianny Celeste UFC – Though his sharp words are usually aimed at UFC middleweight champ Anderson Silva and anyone who supports Silva, Chael Sonnen turned towards UFC Octagon Girl Arianny Celeste when asked about her in an interview to promote the World MMA Awards.
He was asked who he is supporting for Ring Girl of the Year in the awards ceremony that will take place in Las Vegas on Wednesday.
We only had one and that was Chandella [Powell]. The other was the IQ card girl. Arianny kind of walks around and holds up her latest test score. One time when there was a title fight, she got all the way up to five and we were very proud of her.
Celeste and Sonnen then sparred on Twitter with messages that have been since deleted. Celeste started: Hey what’s ur name.. after @spideranderson kicks your [expletive]..u won’t even be able to count to 5!! Get ready to kiss brazils [expletive]!
Sonnen’s reply: Seems easy to wear a bikini and seems easy to walk in a circle, but try walking in a circle while wearing a bikini. Talented girl.
The original interviewer didn’t ask Sonnen about the source of his issues with Celeste, but with Sonnen, he usually doesn’t need a reason to call someone out.
At the same time, it could also be Sonnen’s marketing mind at work. He is hosting the awards, meaning that there is a fair to middling chance that he will have to share a stage with Celeste.
