You would think that the only war of words Ronda Rousey would be engaging in ahead of her UFC 184 main event title defence would be with Cat Zingano. Instead, the UFC’s bantamweight champion seems more focused on the organization’s most prominent Octagon girl.
Arianny Celeste told MMAjunkie Radio on Wednesday that Rousey was a “big bully” who “continuously picks on me.”
Rousey fired back at Celeste on Wednesday afternoon after UFC 184 open workouts at UFC Gym, saying that she was only telling the truth.
“What did I say that was a bully?” Rousey said. “That the fighters should get paid more than the ring girls? How does that make me a bully? That makes me f*cking 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?”
Three years ago, Rousey took another shot at Celeste when the two both made the Maxim Hot 100.
“It would have been really funny if I’d beaten Arianny Celeste, because that would be like a triathlete coming along and beating the runners in a marathon,” Rousey said at the time. “Like, ‘Haha, it’s your job to show your t*ts – I do that better than you!’ Maybe next year. She’s only getting older, and I’m reaching my prime.”
