UFC Champion Ronda Rousey Makes Maxim Magazine’s September Cover
women’s champion Ronda
will appear on the September cover of Maxim
Maxim released several pictures of a bikini-clad Rousey on its
website ahead of the issue’s release, including the cover photo.
Rousey previously graced the cover of ESPN The Magazine twice,
first appearing in the 2012 “Body Issue” before being featured in
the magazine’s 15th anniversary edition this past May.
Founded in the United Kingdom in 1995, Maxim is famous for
featuring film, television and movie stars in revealing layouts.
The magazine has previously showcased the likes of Britney Spears,
Miley Cyrus, Beyonce Knowles and the UFC’s Arianny Celeste,
Brittney Palmer and Kenda Perez.
In the cage, Rousey has never been defeated. The Olympic judo
bronze medalist has finished all seven of her pro opponents via
first-round armbar, capturing the Strikeforce bantamweight title
from Miesha Tate
last year. “Rowdy” was then christened the UFC queen upon joining
the promotion and successfully defended her title against Liz
Carmouche this past February at UFC 157. Rousey will return to
the Octagon this December at UFC
168, when she puts her belt on the line against fellow “TUF 18”
coach Tate in a rematch of their March 2012 conflict.

Dana White isn’t shy when it comes to making bold claims, but perhaps the most curious of his recent claims is his assertion that Ronda Rousey is the biggest star the UFC has ever seen.
