Arianny Celeste: Bleacher Report's MMA Hottie Of The Week

1 of 21

    Arianny Celeste has become the poster child for the phenomenal combination of hot women and MMA.

    Her long, dark hair, her sultry eyes and her exotic look leave anyone who catches a glance of her simply mesmerized.

    Don't believe me? Well, I'm about to change your mind.

    Or for the smart guys out there, I'm just going to provide you with more proof of what you already know.

    Celeste is hot, she loves MMA and we love her.

    Gentlemen, enjoy this special treat because Arianny Celeste is Bleacher Report's MMA Hottie of the Week.

Birthday Suit

2 of 21

    Arianny Celeste was born on Nov. 12, 1985 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

    Then, 25 years later she looked like that.

    Simba must have been right—the circle of life really is an amazing thing.

A Mixed Bag

3 of 21

    If you're wondering what's behind Celeste's exotic look, she is of Mexican and Filipino descent.

    She reportedly decided to get the best possible qualities from both of her birth parents, so she could up her hotness to a ridiculous level.

    I am, however, unable to confirm those reports, though I'd be willing to bet they are true.

Head Start

4 of 21

    Celeste was actually only four months old when she landed her first modeling gig, but she spent most of her youth focusing on athletics, where she was an accomplished cheerleader, gymnast and dancer all rolled into one.

    By age 15, however, she reverted back to modeling.

    I'm sure she was good at those other endeavors, but she definitely made the right decision.

Health Nut

5 of 21

    After graduating from Palo Verde High School, Celeste attended the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV), where she majored in fitness management and nutrition.

    This is just a hunch, but I have a feeling that she takes pretty good care of her body.

    Either that, or she's just really lucky. 

Octagon Girl

6 of 21

    In 2006, Celeste made her debut as an UFC Octagon girl.

    That's right around the time when MMA started getting incredibly popular among the national TV audience.

    Anyone else think that's not a coincidence? 

Model Behavior

7 of 21

    Celeste has modeled in numerous magazines, such as Sports Illustrated, FHM, Maxim and Playboy.

    Sorry to disappoint you, but there will be no photos from that fourth magazine in this slide show.

    This is a PG-13 slide show, fellas.  

Prom Queen

8 of 21

    In September 2009, a high school senior and diehard MMA fan by the name of Conner Cordova asked Celeste to be his prom date through a series of YouTube videos.

    Celeste agreed to attend the dance as long as Cordova found a date for her friend.

    Hands down, that would be the Best. Date. Ever.

Earthquake

9 of 21

    After a couple of scheduling conflicts, Cordova and Celeste were never actually able to attend a dance together.

    But the two eventually wound up throwing their own sponsored event together, which also served as a fundraiser for victims of the Haiti earthquake.

    I gotta say, that Cordova guy definitely cares about the word and Celeste.

    But it's pretty obvious which one's more important to him.

Ring Bearer

10 of 21

    In early 2010, Celeste was named "2009 Ring Girl of the Year" by Fighter's Only Magazine, marking the second straight year that she won the award.

    Essentially, she's just really good at holding up cards outside the octagon.

    Not that there's a problem with that or anything. It does take incredible skill. 

The Opposite Of Cold

11 of 21

    Celeste was voted as "The Hottest UFC Octagon Girl" by Maxim and graced the cover of the May 2010 issue.

    One of the many results of the magazine's wonderful decision was that picture you're looking at.

    I think I speak for us all when I say, "Thank you, Maxim.

Maximum Hotness

12 of 21

    Celeste also made an appearance on Maxim's Hot 100 List in 2010.

    Guess where they ranked her? No. 23, behind some questionable (albeit still hot) choices like Zoe Saldana and Blake Lively.

    Sorry, Maxim, but this is where you and I disagree.

The Hot Host

13 of 21

    In July 2010, the UFC began airing a web-only show called "UFC Ultimate Insider" that is hosted by none other than Arianny Celeste.

    It features highlights, interviews and updates from around the UFC.

    But let's be honest, at least half the audience is watching it because of Celeste, not because of Joe Rogan or Brock Lesnar.

Playboy Bunny

14 of 21

    Celeste gave all her fans another reason to cheer when she posed nude for the November 2010 issue of Playboy magazine.

    She actually poses while lifting 50-pound dumbbells in each arm in the Playboy shoot.

    I'd love to show you guys, but I can't.

    And isn't that what Google's for anyway?

Ring My Bell

15 of 21

    On Dec. 1, 2010, Celeste was voted the "Ring Girl of the Year 2010" at the 2010 MMA Awards.

    I'm really starting to think they're running out of awards to give her.

    Then again, she deserves every single one of them!

Love at First Site

16 of 21

    If you're ever bored and love looking at hot women in waterfalls, then you should probably check out Celeste's official website.

    Oddly enough, when I open up Google Chrome, that appears as my "Most Visited" site.

    Actually, that doesn't surprise me at all. 

Leading Role

17 of 21

    She currently resides in Los Angeles, where she's appeared in numerous movies and music videos.

    I bet she doesn't even have to audition.

    The casting director probably looks at her once and just hands her the job.

High Note

18 of 21

    In addition to fitness, one of Celeste's biggest passions is music.

    I'm just hoping that she's one of those hot girls who actually can sing rather than the countless women who think that their double Ds entitle them to a singing career.

    Heidi Montag, I'm speaking directly to you.

The Land Of The Free

19 of 21

    On her personal website, Celeste lists the following as the things she likes:

    "My favorites: dark chocolate, sushi, fish, mango, pineapple, movies, Louis Vouitton, beaches, singing, dancing, pilates, kickboxing, muy thai, dogs, and her family."

    Only in America can we enjoy so many things...like Ariany Celeste.

    God bless the USA.

Slim Fast

20 of 21

    And now onto the things Celeste can't stand.

    "Dislikes: cheese, sour cream, red meat, rude, judgemental, lazy people."

    So to sum up, she doesn't like fattening food, lard-asses or anyone who's like Skip Bayless or Stephen A. Smith.

Cast Your Vote!

21 of 21

    Alright, fellas, it's time to vote.

    Celeste is the third winner of the B/R MMA Hottie of the Week award, following in the footsteps of Miesha Tate and Rhian Sugden.

    But just who is the hottest? I'll leave that decision up to guys, so be sure to share your thoughts in the comment section below.

    By the way, anyone else craving a taco? Maybe it's just me.

Where can I comment?
