Spanked? Arm wrestler gets prompted to apologize after spanking a ring girl

Sports usually involve people who care about their health and physique so things do get awkward sometimes. There was the infamous case of Joe Rogan ogling Ronda Rousey, the case of Ring girls objectifying Cyril Gane and even Paulo Costa shaking hands with the ring girls with a specific motivation.

But sometimes athletes cross boundaries. One such case recently took place during an arm wrestling match. As the ring girl was announcing one of the competitors got extra rowdy and delivered a slap on the bum of the promoter. The girl was visibly uncomfortable.

And even the host was quick to check the competitor and insist he apologize.

The man acknowledged he saw the error in his ways.

Earlier this year Gane downplayed the viral moment in which Arianny Celeste checked him out during the weigh ins.

Ciryl Gane has shrugged off the infamous incident in which popular UFC ring lady Arianny Celeste drooled over him.

After Gane checked in for his heavyweight championship bout against Francis Ngannou at UFC 270 in January, fans noted that Gane and Celeste briefly seemed to lock eyes. Social media users shared the video widely, and millions of people watched it on YouTube. Insisting that he was staring at one of his coaches and not Celeste, Gane is aware of the attention it garnered.

Gane told to Mirror,

“I didn’t see it [as that] because you see me turn [around] but it was for my coach, not the ring girl. That’s why it makes the video a little bit funny, because when you look at it you think I look at the girl and she looks at me, but no. I don’t know if my wife saw it, but it’s OK.”


Paulo Costa recently gave some insight into his greeting process during weigh ins.
