Strikeforce women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey continues to climb the charts in terms of becoming one of the most popular MMA stars out there. Rousey, who was selected to appear in the soon-to-be-released edition of ESPN The Magazine’s Body Issue, will be one of six cover athletes.
Rousey’s issue hits newsstands July 13. She was selected to be on the cover along with NFL star Rob Gronkowski, MLB’s Jose Bautista, the NBA’s Tyson Chandler, tennis’ Daniela Hantuchova, and the WNBA’s Candace Parker.
Rousey is set to make her first title defense next month against Sarah Kaufman. She is the lone MMA athlete to appear in this edition, though Jon Jones and Gina Carano have both been featured in the past.
