Twitter Beef of the Day: Chael Sonnen vs…Arianny Celeste?

Chael Sonnen

(That puppy dog act won’t work this time…that’s enough of that…ok we forgive you.) 


During a recent interview with the Las Vegas Weekly Review, otherworldly trash talker Chael Sonnen had some less than positive things to say about long time UFC ring girl and 2011 Hottest Woman in MMA Runner-up Arianny Celeste. When asked who his pick would be for Ring Girl of the Year at the upcoming 2011 Fighter’s Only World MMA Awards, yes, those Fighter’s Only World MMA Awards, Sonnen had the following to say:

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.

Holy King of all that is zing.

And believe it or not, when Arianny got wind of these comments, she was less than pleased. But our girl managed to respond in the most adult, professional manner possible, a tweet, which read:

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!

Not bad Arianny, not bad. She’s clearly referencing the 1954 Marlon Brando classic On the Waterfront with the whole “counting” rebuttal. It’s honestly a better comeback than most of us would have expected from someone who usually responds to awkward situations like this. But prepare yourselves for Sonnen’s comeback:

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!

This marks the first time Sonnen has finished a fight in the first round since 2007. This also marks the first time that a fighter has gotten into a certified CP Twitter Beef with a ring girl. A glorious day for mankind indeed. That reminds us, have you followed CagePotato on Twitter yet? No? Well, we implore you to reconsider.

For those of you who aren’t keeping track, Arianny has won Ring Girl of the Year for the past three years running, so we can only imagine what she’ll have to say to Sonnen when she inevitably wins it this year, despite our view on the matter. Hell, this could all be a ploy by Sonnen to ensure that she does win it, if only to provide some much needed hype for the awards show itself. The man truly is an evil genius.
