So, what did Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Octagon Girl Arianny Celeste say to get Ronda Rousey up in arms? Well, aside from accusations of bullying, the model and part-time television personality insisted the women's bantamweight champion was a "bad role model for women."
"Rowdy" responded during her UFC 184 media scrum (via MMA Fighting):
"What did I say that was a bully? That the fighters should get paid more than the ring girls? How does that make me a bully? That makes me fucking right. I'm sorry, but she wouldn't have a job if it wasn't for the fighters. She wouldn't. You think her walking in circles around the two guys or two girls out there fighting for their lives is worth more? Think she works harder than they do? [Brittney Palmer] went and became a ring card girl to pay her way through art school and become a renowned artist and her being a ring card girl helps her promote her art. If you're working at Hooters because you're trying to pay your way through medical school, then fuckin' work it girl. I respect the hustle. But don't think you're hot shit just because you work at Hooters. Use it to further yourself in life; don't think that you're awesome just because you do that. I'm sorry, but I'm not impressed with the job in itself."
They're both "outstanding" women, according to this list.
Rousey has bigger fish to fry, as she's slated to headline this weekend's (Sat., Feb. 28, 2015) UFC 184 pay-per-view (PPV) event opposite undefeated division No. 1 contender Cat Zingano, who is gunning for the women's bantamweight title in Los Angeles, California.
