Ronda Rousey Hits ESPN to Talk Maxim, Retirement, and Hollywood

Our September cover girl opens up on SportsNation.

It’s been a helluva summer for undefeated UFC champ Ronda Rousey, who scored her first Maxim cover and was cast in both the Expendables 3 and Fast & Furious 7. But are you really surprised? There aren’t many women out there who can go toe to toe with the likes of The Rock, Sylvester Stallone, Vin Diesel, and Arnold Schwarzennegar. And there are even fewer who could do that while also looking like a Hollywood bombshell. In fact, there’s really only one. On ESPN’s SportsNation yesterday, Rousey chatted with Max Kellerman and Marcellus Wiley about balancing life in the  UFC with her fledgling big-screen career, her rivalry with fellow fighter Miesha Tate, when she’s going to be ready to throw in the towel, and what it’s like to model for your favorite magazine.
