RONDA ROUSEY COVERS THE NOVEMBER ISSUE OF SELF MAGAZINE
Ronda Rousey recently made waves as the first woman to grace the cover of Men’s Fitness Australia. This month, the UFC Champion headlines another publication. She has been tapped to cover the November issue of Self magazine.
Within the cover story, Rousey was interviewed by comedian Chelsea Peretti, who has deemed herself a “Rousey superfan.” They discuss the fighter’s status as the best in her sport, how fighting strategies translate into her daily life, and winding down after a fight. For the full piece, visit here.
“I want my name to be mentioned along with Mike Tyson and Muhammad Ali,” she says. “And I don’t want the word woman to be in front of champion.”
Outside of the sport, Rousey has expressed an interest in fashion, Last year she appeared in a campaign for Buffalo David Bitton. She recently told the New York Times that Helmut Lang and Stewart Weitzman are among the designers that she would like to work with.
For the Self magazine shoot, Rousey was styled by Melissa Ventosa Martin. The cover shot features her in a red cut-out swimsuit from OYE Swimswear, and below she is dressed in a Proenza Schouler swimsuit.
