Ronda Rousey on HBO: “I Probably Get More Attention Fighting Because of How I Look” (video)


Ronda Rousey HBO Real Sports-478x270Is sex a selling point? Would you ever do a Playboy shoot? Are you a sex symbol?

These are all bases that get covered in the Tuesday night’s HBO Real Sports segment with UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey.

These aren’t the types of questions that most male fighters get asked on a regular basis, but they are par for the course for Rousey, who is constantly asked about such issues since she was the first woman signed to the male-dominated UFC roster.

Rousey freely admits that being attractive helps promote her, but she also knows that if she didn’t have the goods inside the cage, it wouldn’t matter how she looks.

“I probably get more attention fighting because of how I look,” said Rousey during the Real Sports interview, “but if I didn’t know how to fight and I just looked the way I did, no one would know who I am.”

All of that won’t matter when Rousey steps into the Octagon with Liz Carmouche at UFC 157 on Saturday at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., but until then, you can watch Real Sports with Ronda Rousey on HBO on Tuesday at at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
