Maybe Arianny Celeste released these stunning new photos in an attempt to steal back some of the MMA news attention that’s currently being heaped on Octagon Girl newcomer Logan Stanton — we’re not exactly sure where they came from — but at any rate, they started circulating the Internet last night, and we truly appreciate it; props to the UG and Fightlinker for the early finds. Caution: Those thumbnail pics are slightly more NSFW than the main pic, and therefore way more awesome. Enjoy responsibly.
Arianny Celeste (born November 12, 1985) has been a UFC Octagon Girl since 2006. Born and raised in Las Vegas, Arianny is of Mexican and Filipino descent. She has modeled professionally since the age of 15, and previously attended UNLV, where she majored in fitness management and nutrition. Among her many magazine appearances, Arianny Celeste was featured on the cover of the May 2010 issue of Maxim, and was featured in the November 2010 issue of Playboy. Besides her duties as a UFC ring girl, Arianny also hosts the UFC Ultimate Insider web series.Read More ADD COMMENTS (257) DIGG THIS

UFC Octagon Girl Arianny Celeste would like you to know that her official site, missariannyceleste.com, has re-launched with never-before-seen modeling pics and candids. We’d like you to know that the pics on her MySpace page kick the ass of those on her official site. Why, just look at what we found during a few minutes of trawling…

If you’ve ever thought that a radio hosting gig was your key to scoring chicks, then you’ve obviously never met Steve Cofield. But if you want to try it out anyway, while also getting close to UFC Octagon girl Arianny Celeste in order to dazzle her with your smooth voice and razor wit, this is your chance. Cofield is hyping a charity auction to host an hour of radio with Arianny, Dana White, Chuck Liddell, or a bunch of other MMA stars on ESPN 1100 in Vegas. The proceeds from this auction and radiothon go to benefit the cancer foundation The Caring Place, so it’s all for a good cause.
The best part though, is that this could finally be the opportunity you’ve been waiting for to make an impression on Arianny (or Chuck Liddell, if you are a chick who has somehow not already slept with Chuck Liddell). Just in case you win the auction, here’s our step-by-step instructions for wooing Arianny during your hour of radio time together:Read More ADD COMMENTS (17) DIGG THIS

In case your Brock Lesnar and Georges St. Pierre Fatheads need company, Arianny Celeste is now selling a "Super Lifesized Wallsticker" on her store page. For just $49.99, a 5’7" two-dimensional representation of the UFC Octagon Girl can be yours to slap onto any flat surface. Check out that first thumbnail image, in which the Arianny wallsticker is displayed in what appears to be an Ikea model-bedroom — so unlike any bedroom that this sticker would actually be displayed in. Where are the bags of Cheetos? The TapouT-brand bed-sheets? The bottle of hand lotion on the end-table? A little truth in advertising would be nice, that’s all I’m saying…

Thanks to his chummy relationship with Octagon girl Arianny Celeste, MMA Rated’s Ariel Helwani got the scoop on what’s going on between Roger Huerta and his former “gal pal” (I read that phrase in Us Weekly while waiting in line at the supermarket and have been dying to use it). It sounds like Roger has done screwed things up somehow:
AH: What did you think of Roger Huerta’s performance against Kenny Florian?
AC: It was OK.
AH: And what about the rumors that you had falling out with Roger. Are those true?
AC: I wish the best for everybody including him but we are no longer on speaking terms. We are no longer friends.
AH: Wow. What happened?
AC: No comment.
AH: Why are you not on speaking terms?
AC: No comment
AH: Some have speculated that Roger and (“That 70′s Show” star) Laura Prepon have a budding relationship. What are your thoughts on that?
AC: I don’t know anything about that.
At the risk of leaning toward celebrity relationship gossip blog territory, I have to admit this makes me wonder. No longer on speaking terms? That doesn’t sound like your average break-up language, even if she wishes “the best for everyone, including him” — which is the type of boilerplate phrase that is certainly not meant to convey any sort of truth. Maybe all the fame and attention has gone to Huerta’s head? That explanation would certainly jive with his outrageous contract demands. At least this means that Arianny is back on the market. Maybe you should give her a call. I think she’d really like you if she got to know you.Read More ADD COMMENTS (623) DIGG THIS

Above is Octagon Girl Arianny Celeste’s video profile for the Maxim “Hometown Hotties” contest. She was a finalist but, sadly, she didn’t win. Top ten ain’t bad, though, especially when it seems like she should kind of be ineligible for a ‘hot girls next door’ type contest when she is, in fact, a professional hot girl (a really hot professional hot girl), as Joe Rogan likes to point out.
As we learn in this video, Arianny isn’t afraid to hit a bitch, she wants to record some “rock/pop” songs in the future, and she would like to see herself in film. There’s also a bizarre little segment where she gets out of a pool dripping wet, which is a good start, and then proceeds to pour a bottle of water on herself. Seems like someone got the order wrong in their list of things for hot girls in bikinis to do, but we can’t really complain about the end result.

Thank God for Arianny Celeste. The woman’s tireless devotion to strip down and be photographed in every fashion possible is commendable to say the least, and her recent shoot with Randall Slavin for Complex Magazine shows us a yet another side of the long time UFC ring girl, specifically, the Nightmare Before Christmas/S&M side. It’s safe to say that we REALLY enjoy this facet of her personality, and hope to see more of it in the near future. Check out the gallery above (Props to Don Fonzarelli for the find), the video below, and be sure to follow Ms. Celeste on Twitter.Read More ADD COMMENTS (48) DIGG THIS

(Sure, when I try to take photos of the Octagon Girls getting dressed it’s "creepy," but when Arianny does the same thing it’s fun and whimsical. It figures. Photo courtesy of MissAriannyCeleste.com)
You might remember a while back when we posted UFC Octagon girl Arianny Celeste’s profile video for the Maxim “Hometown Hotties” competition and she mentioned her aspirations to be a rock/pop singer. Intrepid Cage Potato reader Maxwell discovered that Arianny now has her own MySpace music page, which has, as of this writing, all of two songs on it.
I’d say rock/pop is a fair description of the genre. Her songs are about on par with the cookie-cutter stuff you hear on the radio, though she doesn’t quite hit all the notes at times, so maybe they should add a little of that T-Pain effect to smooth it out. As Maxwell points out, her song “Superficial” seems, shall we say, heavily “influenced” by this Avril Lavigne joint.
Arianny would be the first to make a successful jump from Octagon girl to pop sensation, and there’s probably a good reason you don’t see much crossover between those careers. For one, they appeal to different demographics. Dudes may ogle ring girls and buy magazines with pictures of them, but those same dudes are probably not buying Avril Lavigne CD’s (except the guys at Fightlinker, who like anything Canadian, even Alan Thicke). But hey, she’s off to a good start with the MySpace music page. They don’t let just anyone put their music on the internet.

Look, nobody looks good in a mugshot. But after spending all night partying, allegedly getting physical with
an unnamed victim her boyfriend Praveen Chandra, then getting arrested, I’m actually surprised that Arianny Celeste looks as good as she does. It could have been a lot worse, is what I’m saying.
At long last, here’s Arianny Celeste’s mugshot from her domestic violence booking on Saturday morning. The UFC ring girl was released on $3,000 bail after about 12 hours in custody, got in a power-nap sometime during the day, and still showed up for the UFC 146 main card looking pretty damn presentable. And that’s why she’s had a steady job carrying round cards around the Octagon for over five years — other professional hot chicks simply cannot hang at that level.
UPDATE: The Las Vegas Sun has details of the incident that led to Celeste’s arrest. Read on after the jump. You will not be disappointed…Read More ADD COMMENTS (44) DIGG THIS

Sorry for being late to the party on this one, but as you might have heard by now, UFC ring girl Arianny Celeste — real name Annie Schwartz-Wasserstein* — was arrested early Saturday morning and charged with “battery (domestic violence).” She was taken into custody by the Clarke County Police Department at 7:30 a.m., and later released on $3,000 bond before showing up halfway through the UFC 146 main card.
Your first assumption will probably be, “Whoa, she beat up Tiki?” But until more details surface, we can only speculate. (I mean, theoretically, she could have also choked a live-in personal assistant, right?) MMAJunkie passes along Arianny’s last few tweets before her arrest, which suggest she was on a collision course with disaster/hilarity:
Near midnight, she posted a photo of her herself in evening attire sitting at a table, with a caption that read: “Dinner at Mizumi,” referring to a new restaurant at the Wynn Las Vegas. A few hours later, she tweeted another photo of herself with a male companion who was kissing the side of her face, with a caption: “??! forever n always??” An additional tweet came around 3:30 a.m. with her making a crazy look and the caption: “I be going crayyyy ha hey bay bayyy.”
We’ll update you as soon as we know more. For the record, Dana White stated on Saturday night that the UFC has Celeste’s back and supports her 100%.

(“OK, Ms. Celeste, we want this calendar to reflect both your future and your past, which is why I’m going to need you to kick in the window of that Ferrari for this next shot.”)
Allow me to take you through my thought process whilst attempting to determine a worthy enough post this morning:
OK, Jared, another weekend, another dead hooker in the trunk, but that’s not important, you must focus on an MMA-related topic for the time being…let’s see here, Nick Ring has his next fight booked against Constantinos Philippou at UFC 154, but no one cares about that………dammit, Latisha, you just had to threaten to call Big Ron again, didn’t you?! Focus, focus…uh…Marloes Coenen said Ronda Rousey has “no balls”…I suppose that is true, but not really newsworthy, because bitches be crazy, right Latisha? *attempts high five, receives no response*….think Jared, what would the Potato Nation like to start their Monday off with? *looks over to Latisha once again*…TITS. Of course, it’s so obvious! Time to break out the lime, I mean computer, and get started!
So while it may not be all that significant that a behind-the-scenes video of Arianny Celeste’s 2013 Calendar shoot was recently released online, please trust that this is probably the most captivating bit of news you could come across this morning given the options at hand. So just shut up and enjoy Ms. Celeste rocking no shirt like only she can.

According to a new report from MMAJunkie, the Las Vegas District Attorney’s office has decided not to file domestic violence charges against veteran UFC ring girl Arianny Celeste. “After our review of the case, we found that there was insufficient evidence to move forward,” said Tess Driver, executive assistant to Las Vegas district attorney Steve Wolfson.
After being arrested on May 26th following an altercation at the Wynn hotel in Las Vegas — and spending the entire day in jail — Celeste claimed that she was simply defending herself when her boyfriend Praveen Chandra choked her twice; Chandra denied Arianny’s version of the events, and claimed that Celeste kicked him in the nose in a limousine. But then you look at their mugshots and all you see is two tired people who should have left the club at midnight, instead of partying to the point of going “crayyyy ha hey bay bayyy.” With no visible injuries to speak of, it seems the Las Vegas authorities decided to just chalk this one up to drunk people acting stupid, or stupid people getting drunk, or both, whatever.
Requests for comment have not been answered by Chandra. Seriously, we found his e-mail address online a few weeks ago and sent him a note about this whole mess, but nothing. WE WILL NOT BE IGNORED, PRAVEEN.Read More ADD COMMENTS (10) DIGG THIS

Alright, we take back all those jokes we made about people who think the world will end in 2012. The apocalypse is clearly upon us, as it has just come to our attention that Arianny Celeste apparently fancies herself some kind of singer now. Just let that news sink in for a moment before reading on … We knew she dabbled, but surely these new apparently professional aspirations can only mean the end of western civilization as we know it, right? I mean there are bad ideas, and then there is the fucking Titanic. There is the Hindenburg. There is leading your army into Russia in the dead of winter. Allowing this attractive, halfway famous girl who has no doubt always considered herself pretty good at karaoke to think she can try her hand at making actual “music” ranks right up there with the worst of them.
Nonetheless, there’s our beloved AC starring in the above video, introducing a “sneak peek” of her “debut single” titled “Fight to Love Me” (Get it? Because she’s a UFC Octagon girl …) which she promises will be out soon with the help of something called the DE Music Group. At first, we thought it must be a joke. The lyrics here are (naturally) cartoonishly bad, the “beat” sounds like somebody made it on a hacked version of some Russian production software from the 80s and if you don’t squint a little bit and lean away from the computer every time she tries to hit a high note, well, you don’t have your speakers turned up loud enough.Read More ADD COMMENTS (69) DIGG THIS

About five hours ago, Rampage Jackson entourage-member Tiki Ghosn tweeted the above photo of himself posing with — dare we say it out loud? — the new Arianny Celeste issue of Playboy. As he wrote: "Hey @nicolerichie fuck J-Lo I’d rather go home and rub one out to @AriannyCeleste !!!!"

So you thought Twitter was only useful in keeping the world up to date on the civil strife inside Iran? Not so, my friends. It can also be used to post pictures of yourself in your capacity as a “professional hot chick," and nobody, but nobody, does that better than Arianny Celeste. We’ll say this for Arianny’s twitter account: even if you don’t know what you’re looking for, you can be pretty damn sure of what you’re going to find.

There’s an unwritten rule in the tattoo community that you’re never supposed to mock another person’s tattoos. The reasoning behind this thinking is that you never know why a person decided to tattoo something onto his or her body, whether or not a person actually asked the artist to make the tattoo look a certain way (I have intentionally rough-around-the-edges work myself) and the whole “different strokes” thing. For example, while Chris Andersen is my golden standard of what tattoos should look like, some people see Michael Beasley as the tattoo world’s G.O.A.T. Taste is subjective, is what I’m getting at.
That being said, even Mr. Cool Ice grimaced when he saw Arianny Celeste tweet an image of some completely rational and totally non-stalkerish fan’s new tattoo of the UFC ring girl/“musician”/Fathead model (Did I forget something?).

HOW COULD HE DO THIS TO THE POOR GIRL?!
During a recent interview with the Las Vegas Weekly Review, otherworldly trash talker Chael Sonnen had some less than positive things to say about long time UFC ring girl and 2011 Hottest Woman in MMA Runner-up Arianny Celeste. When asked who his pick would be for Ring Girl of the Year at the upcoming 2011 Fighter’s Only World MMA Awards, yes, those Fighter’s Only World MMA Awards, Sonnen had the following to say:
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.
Holy King of all that is zing.
And believe it or not, when Arianny got wind of these comments, she was less than pleased. But our girl managed to respond in the most adult, professional manner possible, a tweet, which read:
Hey what’s ur name.. after @spideranderson kicks your ass..u won’t even be able to count to 5!! Get ready to kiss brazils ass!
Not bad Arianny, not bad. She’s clearly referencing the 1954 Marlon Brando classic On the Waterfront with the whole “counting” rebuttal. It’s honestly a better comeback than most of us would have expected from someone who usually responds to awkward situations like this. But prepare yourselves for Sonnen’s comeback:Read More ADD COMMENTS (167) DIGG THIS
