Chael Sonnen is an equal-opportunity basher.
In addition to Brazilian champions, Croatian kickboxers and Canadian media personalities, the fiery middleweight contender is also adept at deconstructing the UFC Octagon Girls and their contributions to the fight game.
Specifically Arianny Celeste, who Sonnen suggested (via Las Vegas Weekly) is not that bright:
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.
Harsh criticism, but don't expect Celeste (via Twitter) to take that lying down.
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! Talking crap about me In interviews is like when a boy picks on a girl he likes in 1st grade...GROW UP! Doesn't work anymore sir!
Sonnen is hosting the "World MMA Awards," which despite its smoke and mirrors, is basically a popularity contest. A bunch of categories are assembled and fans vote on the names/brands/faces they find most appealing.
Celeste, not surprisingly, is up for "Ring Card Girl of the Year," so expect these two to cross paths on Nov. 30 when the ceremonies go down in Las Vegas.
Should be interesting.
