What a Beautiful Woman Wants: Arianny Celeste

Check out these exclusive photos of the UFC Octagon stunner and get a first look at at her scorching 2020 calendar.

Arianny Celeste is more gorgeous than ever in this smoldering set of new photos, and we’ve got the exclusive first look.

The bombshell UFC Octagon girl is fresh off a beachy shoot lensed by Emilynn Rose in the Bahamas, where she hit an impressive array of bikini-clad, topless and tastefully nude poses. 

Since Celeste made her UFC debut years ago, the former Maxim cover model has cleverly parlayed her ring girl gig into a full-fledged modeling career. Her 2020 pinup calendar is out now, and she was kind enough to give us another exclusive first look at the cover, January, February and September images.

Photographed by Richelle Monae, the annual calendar is available with her autograph or a personalized message for $30 and $39, respectively. Each order comes up with 12 12″ x 18″ snaps and a bonus 12″ x 24″ full-size print. And if that doesn’t satiate your need for Celeste-centric merch, there’s also a “Skater T-Shirt” on sale for $30. All can be ordered on her official website.   


In this special edition of What a Beautiful Woman Wants, Celeste tells Maxim about her favorite fighters, craziest UFC experience and more: 

Tell us a bit about what is was like shooting your 2020 calendar in Mexico. 

It was wild, my crew was all girls . We got to hang with locals and explore exotic locations that only the locals know about. We got to dance and drink lots of tequila. I always like to work and play.

Of all of the UFC fights that you’ve worked, which is your favorite? 

My favorite always changes, but my last favorite must have been the McGregor vs. Khabib fight.  The energy at the arena and around Las Vegas was insane. It was like we were going to war and everyone was ready to fight. It was scary yet exciting at the same time.


What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever seen at a UFC event? 

Anderson Silva breaking his leg, and him shouting in pain. I’ve also had blood and sweat splattered on me several times.

Who are your favorite current fighters to watch? 

Brian Ortega and Nate Diaz. They have so much heart, true Mexican warriors .

Do you have a favorite athlete or sports team outside of the UFC? 

Team, no. But I like to watch basketball a lot. I just got into it because of the playoffs.


What’s on your favorite music playlist? 

Depends on my mood, I can go from jazz to country to hip-hop. I just need to feel the music.

What are your absolute favorite foods?

Pizza and sushi.

Who’s your biggest celebrity crush?

Lenny Kravitz and his daughter…is that weird?
