Ronda Rousey is the real deal, a beautiful intelligent woman and one of the most capable martial artists on the planet. At weigh-ins for her fights in the 135 lb. bantamweight division of the UFC she has been known to look svelte and very sexy.
Look how cut she looks in these weigh-in photos:
She reportedly shows up a few days before weigh-ins hovering around 152 lbs. One time she cut 17 lbs. to reach a fighting weight of 136 in only one day!
However during the off-season when she is bulked up and in full training mode, she can sometimes resemble a well muscled linebacker.
Ronda Rousey has said that her weight fluctuates very frequently. She has even intentionally gained weight before a sports illustrated photo shoot to serve as a more realistic example for women.
“THE ESPN BODY ISSUE IS ABOUT CELEBRATING THE PEAK OF HUMAN POTENTIAL AND THE KIND OF FORM THE HUMAN BODY, WHEN SPECIALIZED, CAN REALLY LOOK LIKE. THE SWIMSUIT ISSUE HAS A LOT MORE [OF A] SEXUAL SIDE TO IT, WHILE I DON’T THINK THE BODY ISSUE IS OVERTLY SEXUAL WHEREAS SPORTS ILLUSTRATED IS,” ROUSEY SAID. “THE DIFFERENCE IN HOW I APPROACHED IT IS WHEN I POSED FOR ESPN BODY, I REALLY TRIED TO BE A LOT MORE CUT AND A LOT MORE CLOSE TO MY PRIME FIGHTING SHAPE BECAUSE I WAS BEING PHOTOGRAPHED AS A FIGHTER AND TRYING TO LOOK MORE LIKE A FIGHTER.”
“I PURPOSELY TRIED TO GET A LITTLE BIT HEAVIER FOR THE SI ISSUE SO I WAS A LITTLE BIT CURVIER AND NOT IN TOP FIGHT SHAPE LOOK BUT THE LOOK AT WHICH I FEEL I’M THE MOST ATTRACTIVE. IT’S VERY NATURAL FOR A PERSON’S BODY TO GO THROUGH SEASONS.”
SHE ALWAYS SEEMS TO LOOK THE LARGEST WHEN SHE FILMS MOVIES
