Arianny Celeste doesn’t have any future plans to step inside the Octagon and mix it up with the likes of Ronda Rousey, Sara McMann or Miesha Tate.
However, the Octagon girl isn’t afraid to defend herself if it comes to that.
During a recent appearance on MMAjunkie Radio, Celeste re-told a story in which she was forced to do just that.
“It was after I’d been with the UFC a couple years. I didn’t have any kind of name or anything, but some girl was picking on me and I had to defend myself.
“She physically tried to attack me so I had to defend myself; and I ended up hurting her pretty bad because I learned a lot of things like hammer punches and kicks to the stomach.
“That was pretty dirty, but I had to do it. I’m not proud of it, but I had to defend myself. I’m a very non-violent person.”
Along with being seen at the majority of the UFC events around the world, Celeste will return as host of “Overhaulin” next month on Velocity. The show airs Sundays at 8 p.m. ET.
You also might remember that Celeste was one involved in a “fight” with her now-fiance after issues, resulting in her missing the portion of a live UFC show.
