Beautiful UFC Octagon girl Arianny Celeste is as much a part of the UFC identity as Octagon announcer Bruce Buffer, cage-side announcer Joe Rogan – even the Octagon itself. She’s an unheralded staple of the UFC brand.
What you may not know about Celeste is that she’s got plenty going on outside her duties with the UFC – and we’re not just talking about her many additional modeling jobs and hosting roles. In addition to these side projects, the beloved Octagon girl is also working on a burgeoning music career.
Most of Celeste’s music career thus far has been limited to snippets of songs on her snapchat and social media accounts. Over the weekend, however, the UFC star uploaded a longer video of some of her recent musical efforts to her Youtube channel. See it above!
In this video, Celeste can be heard covering Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You, a 1967 single written by Frankie Valli that has also been covered by the likes of The Supremes, Julio Iglesias, Lauryn Hill, Barry Manilow, The Killers, and Girls’ Generation. Celeste performs this song alongside her producers Alvaro and Troy from 5am.
In the description for this YouTube cover, Celeste explains that she “loves this song,” and that she hopes fans love her rendition of it. She also promises that “new original stuff is coming soon,” which means that we’ll be able to get a sense of her songwriting chops in the near future too.
Arianny Celeste, who is now 31 years old, has been working with the UFC since 2006. She is a multiple-time Ring Girl of the Year winner at the World MMA Awards. Over the course of her career, she has modeled for magazines like Maxim, FHM, Playboy, Sports Illustrated, and Fighter’s Only Magazine.
