This Week In Unexpected Twitter Beefs: Chael Sonnen Vs. Arianny Celeste

New, 2 comments


If there's one thing you can say about Chael Sonnen, he certainly doesn't seem to discriminate.

As we know by now, the garish middleweight can pop off at any subject with very little provocation, from his lovable feud with the country of Brazil to his crusade against the Canadian media. Apparently, even ring girls are fair game.

In speaking with Fighters Only Magazine over the weekend, Sonnen was asked who he believed would win Ring Girl of the Year at the World MMA Awards. His answer was a succinct as you'd expect.

"We only had one [ring girl] 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."

After hearing of the remark, Celeste fired right back with this now-deleted tweet.

"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!"

Naturally, Sonnen wasn't exactly at a loss for words in his retort.

Seems easy to wear a bikini and seems easy to walk in a circle, but try walking in a circle while wearing a bikini. Talented girl!

The capper? If Celeste does indeed win her fourth Ring Girl of the Year award, none other than Mr. Chael P. Sonnen will be presenting it to her. Who says award shows can't catch a glimpse of intrigue?

The World MMA Awards take place on Wednesday, November 30th in Las Vegas, Nevada. Proceedings are set to air live on
