Get Fit__ Ronda Rousey Feels More Beautiful After Gaining Weight for Sports Illustrated
If you don’t know the name Ronda Rousey, here’s a couple titles that might ring a bell: Undefeated UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion, winner of ESPY for Best Female Athlete and Best Fighter. If we’re still not ringing any bells (pun intended) you may know Rousey from her roles in The Expendables 3, Furious 7, or the Entourage. Basically, we love Rousey.
When asked to pose in the 2015 Sports Illustrated Rousey did the unexpected, she gained weight. Sitting down for an interview with Cosmopolitan Rousey said, “I felt like I was much too small for a magazine that is supposed to be celebrating the epitome of a woman.” Rousey fights at a weight of 135 pounds, but insisted that she feels more comfortable at a weight of 150 pounds.
“I wanted to be at my most feminine shape, at 150 pounds, I feel like I'm at my healthiest and my strongest and my most beautiful.”
