Chael Sonnen & Arianny Celeste Duke It Out Over Twitter
UFC middle weight contender Chael Sonnen recently got into a war of words with the gorgeous UFC ring girl Arianny Celeste. The amusing confrontation began when Sonnen was asked for his opinion on Celeste's nomination for Ring Girl of the Year by the World MMA Awards:
We only had one and that was Chandella [Powell]. The other was the IQ card girl. Arianny [Celeste] 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.
I'll admit it -- that was a zinger! Celeste didn't take that shot lying on her back tough. She retaliated later on Twitter:
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 quickly replied:
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.
Although the interviewer didn't ask Sonnen about his source of discontent with Celeste, it's quite within his nature to pull this sort of back and forth. Could it be genuine animosity or just a good marketing ploy on Sonnen's end? Sonnen is set to fight middle weight champ Anderson Silva and he will also be hosting the World MMA Awards show -- so there is a high possibility that he will have to share the stage with Celeste. This could prove to be quite interesting.
