Undefeated UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey graces the November 2015 cover of Self Magazine, showing off her toned figure in a red swimsuit. Photographed by Jason Kibbler, the athlete shows off her moves in cool shots captured in the desert.
In the accompanying interview, Ronda talks about wanting a legacy, saying, “I want my name to be mentioned along with Mike Tyson and Muhammad Ali. And I don’t want the word ‘woman’ to be in front of ‘champion.’”
She also gives her definition of badass, saying, “[It’s someone] who’s willing to do what needs to be done. There are plenty of times where people know and they don’t do it—because it’s not comfortable or easy. If you do what’s right regardless of how it’s going to make you look, then you’re really a badass.”
