Penelope López Márquez, known as Arianny Celeste and born 11 November 1985 is an American model and Octagon Girl of the UFC.
Arianny debuted with the UFC in 2006 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Paradise (Nevada). Celeste has posed for magazines such as Maxim, FHM, Playboy, Sports Illustrated, and Fighter’s Only Magazine. At the World MMA Awards, Celeste was voted “Ring Girl of the Year” from 2008 to 2014. Maxim named her the “The Hottest UFC Octagon Girl” in the 2010 edition, in which it appears on the cover. She posed nude for Playboy in November 2010. Celeste has been host of the television show Overhaulin’ from 2014 this 2015.
May 26, 2012, Celeste was arrested in Las Vegas for domestic violence because of a falling out with then boyfriend Praveen Chandra. Celeste was released on bail of $ 3,000. Chandra accused her of having kicked the nose. For its part, Celeste said that the boyfriend tried to strangle her and took her by the neck several times during that night. The two were arrested in a hotel room Wynn Las Vegas.
Last year, Arianny Celeste and 24 other professional models, including also Melanie Iglesias and Sara Underwood, are none too happy at three New York strip clubs for allegedly using their photos without authorization with the alleged implication “that they are each strippers.”
Arianny Celeste also has a strong rivalry with Ronda Rousey. And do not miss a chance to prove it, as when Maxim magazine, three years ago, both elected on the list of the 100 hottest celebrities. Ronda Rousey was furious: “It would be fun to beat Arianny: a bit as a triathlete beating a marathon runner in a race.” More diplomatic but effective the replication of Arianny Celeste: “You have no idea how hard it is to live in a bikini virtually all day with a camera pointed on your face constantly.”
