Arianny: Rousey not a good role model

In a Maxim interview that same year, Rousey was asked if there was anyone higher than her in Maxim's Hot 100 that she felt did not deserve it.

"It would have been really funny if Id beaten Arianny Celeste," replied Rousey. "Because that would be like a triathlete coming along and beating the runners in a marathon. Like, 'Ha-ha, its your job to show your tittiesI do that better than you!' Maybe next year. Shes only getting older, and Im reaching my prime."

In an MMAJunkie radio interview on Saturday, Celeste finally responded.

I dont really like the way she carries herself, said Celeste, as transcribed by MMAFighting. I dont think shes a good role model for women. I think that women should empower each other and give each other a little pat on the back.

Ive personally been talked about by her, and I dont even know her. Ive met her twice. She said a couple things in her Maxim interview. A lot of people pointed it out to me, but I didnt really acknowledge it.

Shes paving the way for womens MMA, and Ive made being a UFC Octagon Girl into a career. She should definitely recognize that and be nice."
