UFC Octagon girl Arianny Celeste doesn't want to fight Ronda Rousey

Celeste was a guest on yesterday's MMA Hour and clarified that there's nothing going on between herself and Ronda Rousey and she most emphatically does not want to fight the UFC champ.

Arianny Celeste, the UFC's alpha-Octagon girl, was Ariel Helwani's guest on the MMA Hour yesterday and tried to clear the air about her war of words with UFC women's Bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey:

"Nothing is going on. She just, I guess she doesn't like me for whatever reason and I don't know really know what that reason is because I've literally met her twice, and was so polite, and so welcoming, and so excited to have women in the UFC. I don't know what her deal is with me, but I'd rather not even talk about it.

"I don't even care, she's a fighter and I'm an Octagon girl, it's two completely different things. I'm never going to fight, so people can stir up as much shit as they want."

And when asked if she'd ever want to put on the gloves and settle it in the cage:

"No, you know what, I get that a lot too. I love my arms, so I'm good. I don't ever want to fight her. I'm good, we're good."

That's too bad since the UFC desperately needs a big name opponent for Rousey. I kid, I kid.

And yes it is a slow news day. Thanks for noticing.
