Fiance-free Arianny Celeste wants no part of Ronda Rousey inside UFC's Octagon

Ronda Rousey’s next challenger still remains unclear.

It's safe to say Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) ring girl Arianny Celeste doesn't want to trade in her bathing suits for a pair of 4 oz. gloves.

The former Playboy cover girl was recently quizzed on "The MMA Hour" about what has been going on between her and UFC women's bantamweight champion, Ronda Rousey, who said some disparaging things about the model.

Celeste cleared the air on the rumors, confirming there is nothing between her and the arm-snatcher worth talking about.

"Nothing is going on. She just, I guess she doesn't like me for whatever reason and I don't know really know what that reason is because I've literally met her twice, and was so polite, and so welcoming, and so excited to have women in the UFC. I don't know what her deal is with me, but I'd rather not even talk about it."

Celeste was provided the platform to clear the air on the issue on and fore all; however, the Las Vegas, Nevada, resident doesn't even think it's an issue at all.

"No I don't even care, she's a fighter and I'm an Octagon girl, it's two completely different things. I'm never going to fight, so people can stir up as much shit as they want."

Is there any chance the Overhaulin' hostess puts on the gloves and lasts five minutes against the Olympic bronze medalist?

"No, you know what, I get that a lot too. I love my arms, so I'm good. I don't ever want to fight her. I'm good, we're good."

Move along, Maniacs, nothing to see here.

Meanwhile -- and perhaps more important -- Celeste confirmed that she is no longer engaged, which gives us all a healthy dose of false hope.
