Arianny Celeste might be the most popular Octagon Girl in the UFC’s history, and she’s about to get even more popular.
The 24-year-old Las Vegas beauty will appear on the cover of Playboy’s November issue, which arrives at newsstands on Friday, and she will be featured in an 8-page nude pictorial inside the magazine.
Celeste has been with the UFC since UFC 70 and she also hosts a web-based show about the sport on UFC.com called “UFC Ultimate Insider,” which she describes as “Acess Hollywood meets mixed martial arts.” She’s also pursuing a music career and her first single “Fight to Love Me” will be available later this month.
Here are some topics Celeste touched on in Playboy:
On the UFC: “I love the fights, though at first it was hard to watch…At the same time I have my favorite fighters, so I am a little bit biased.”
On the duties of an Octagon Girl: “Just don’t trip over your feet, and try to look hot and graceful.”
On her look: “I have a very different and unique look, and I like that…I love my legs – they’re super-strong and lean. I’m proud of these stems.”
On posing for Playboy: “This was my first nude shoot, and I was surprised at how confident I was. But I’m usually running around naked, so it came naturally.”
