Octagon Girl Arianny Celeste Spices Up Complex Mag
If you're not yet a fan of UFC, then maybe you haven't laid eyes on their cover girl Arianny Celeste. The Las Vegas model has been stealing the attention of mixed martial arts fighting fanatics since 2006. At the tender age of 26, Arianny has hit the mainstream through Twitter beefs, Maxim photoshoots and even a couple of calendars here and there. The sultry bombshell and self described fitness nerd lends her talents to Complex magazine's February/March issue 2012.
On what the common misconceptions about Octagon Girls:
People think we’re ditzy and stupid. But the UFC girls have changed the game. It’s not just about walking around, showing the goods. We’re not in thongs and high heels. You need to be educated about the sport if you’re going to represent the UFC. You can be the most beautiful girl in the world but if you can’t talk about the sport then you’re not valuable to them.
On what she looks for in a fighter:
Going for it every time. Some of the fighters, once they start winning, their fights get boring and safe. One of my favorites is BJ Penn because he’s got the fighter’s heart every time. It’s always a battle.
