Ronda Rousey: First Woman On The Cover Of Men’s Fitness

Rousey

Ronda Rousey certainly has a lot to brag about, with Rousey becoming the first woman to land on the cover of Men’s Fitness Australia. The Instagram post that Ronda published with a photo of herself on the cover of the magazine has swelled to more than 226,000 likes, with folks congratulating Ronda on her accomplishments. The 28-year-old MMA fighter and actress has already gained a large amount of popularity due to her specific “arm bar” move that forces plenty of her opponents to tap out before Rousey breaks their arm.

As reported by CBS, Rousey will headline a UFC fight in Australia for the first time on Sunday, Nov. 15. Rousey will go up against Holly Holm in the battle for the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Championship.

On Instagram, Ronda shows off some of her strong moves — as well as her training regimen. Rousey also published a funny photo of herself getting a cramp worked out of her calf muscle on the social media site.

With Rousey’s UFC 193 crowd expected to swell to 70,000 in Melbourne — with millions more watching on pay-per-view — the fight should be a doozy, as reported the New York Post. Rousey is the unbeaten ex-Olympian whose fame has expanded beyond her MMA realm. The California native already has six actress credits on IMDB for the budding movie star. With Rousey being unbeaten with a 12-0 record since August, Rousey is legendary. Ronda knocked out her last opponent in a super-short 34 seconds, when Bethe Correia went down under the legendary blow from Rousey in Brazil.

Outside of her super-athletic skills that won Ronda the cover of a magazine usually reserved for male athletes, Rousey knows how to go from athletic to glam, with Ronda ruling the red carpet.

Fans have fallen in love with Rousey’s “take no prisoners” style, not only in the cage — but also in interviews. Ronda’s interview wherein she spoke of her mother giving her advice not to be a “do nothing b****” has gone completely viral on YouTube. At least one version of that interview has received more than 3 million views. In the interview, Ronda explained that she learned not to be the type of woman who sits around and does nothing — but only relies upon her man to give her things due to her beauty or physical attributes. Rousey’s “do nothing b*****s” speech resonated so much with women around the web that even Beyonce decided to use the snippet in one of her musical performances.

Rousey flipped out over Beyonce using her “do nothing” speech, reported Entertainment Tonight. When the superstar diva deciding to use Ronda’s “do nothing” speech in one of her performances as a means to inspire other women, it was a sweet surprise for Rousey. Perhaps as much of a blessing to the popular fighter as being the first female to land on the cover of Men’s Fitness Australia.
