A remnant of boxing’s influence on the sport of mixed martial arts, the ring girls act as promotional models, brand ambassadors and also indicate to spectators which round of a fight is about to begin.
Arianny Celeste has been a favorite ring girl of many mixed martial arts fans, racking up the “Ring Girl of the Year” award in Fighters Only magazine five times in the last 7 years, beating out other top ring girls such as Rachelle Leah and Brittany Palmer.
That issue of Playboy went on to be one of the top selling issues of the magazine for that year. A cursory look at her Instagram shows she has over 2.8 million followers, so she DEFINITELY has a diehard legion of fans following her as she jets across the world promoting the UFC, fitness products and events.
With so many different business interests, including modeling for other magazines like Maxim and Sports Illustrated, co-hosting the TV show “Overhaulin” on TLC and traveling with the UFC for major pay per view events, it’s a wonder she doesn’t take a break more often!
