All the Times Ronda Rousey Proved She’s a Badass

Ronda Rousey is an amazing athlete, author, Sports Illustrated model, role model, and an all-around an amazing person — here’s why.

When she became a ‘Sports Illustrated’ Swimsuit Issue cover girl

Sports Illustrated celebrated all types of bodies for their three 2016 covers and Rousey stunned in the powerful pic. By the way, her swimsuit is actually body paint.

When She Takes Time for Herself

Everyone needs some downtime and Rousey’s no different. We love that in her hectic schedule and training regimen that she finds time to laugh in bed in her underwear.

When Lance Cpl. Jarrod Haschert invited Rousey to the Marine Corps Ball, we bet he didn’t really expect her to come. But she did! And she even thanked him for “putting a smile on my face again” after her UFC defeat.

When She Campaigned Against Being a “D.N.B”

In case you haven’t heard, Ronda is strictly against being a “D.N.B.” (do nothing b****), a woman who only looks pretty and is taken care of by someone else. She created apparel with the message for a charity campaign in 2015 and a portion of the proceeds went to a non-profit working in mental health services for women with body image issues.

When she talked about her upset on ‘Ellen’

She got serious when she told DeGeneres she had contemplated suicide after the defeat, but she got through it. “I looked up and I saw my man Travis was standing up there, and I looked up at him and I was like, I need to have his babies. I need to stay alive,” she said.
