Ronda Rousey media scrum full video: 'Rowdy' baffled by Arianny Celeste feud, but happy critique made grammatical sense

In addition, the champ elaborates on her next opponent, fighting Gina Carano, a possible return to the Olympics and much, much more.

Just when you think you got out, the media pulls you back in!

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey doesn't understand why UFC Octagon Girl Arianny Celeste is still chirping about comments "Rowdy" made last year in an interview with Maxim magazine.

Media invention?

"That whole Arianny thing. Those comments from the Maxim thing were from 12 months ago. Did it take her a year to come up with a comeback? Why is this coming up now? Am I not exciting enough for you guys? Are you trying to invent things? I don't understand it, to be honest. It made grammatical sense, which is good for her."

Rousey suggested that it required little-to-no talent to carry a card and walk in a circle.

That prompted Celeste to criticize Rousey for being a poor role model for women (see her retort here). While "Rowdy" wasn't that upset over the comments -- which Celeste was forced to defend -- she was a little confused as to why it took her so long to make them.

Don't shoot the messenger!
