Rousey: ‘I Don’t Feel Like A Sex Symbol’

UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey is a global icon. She’s taken over the sport of MMA and is now in the process of taking over the world, well maybe not the world, but you know what I mean.

The champ will be starring in major movies, has already written a NYTBS book and really seems to be able to demolish anything she wants.

The champ recently spoke with Sports Illustrated about her photo shoot she did with them a while back. She was asked if she considered herself a sex symbol and if she would ever be a full-time model.

Here’s what she said:

“It’s not weird. It’s more like I was playing that role for a day. I don’t feel like that every day. My roommate Marina (Shafir) just made these amazing Paleo brownies and I just took some down. So I really don’t feel like a swimsuit sex symbol right now. I feel like someone who’s full of a brownie that has zucchini in it but is somehow still delicious.

“It’s difficult. I did an all-day shoot yesterday and my knee is swollen. I know it’s not as glamorous as easy as it appears from afar, and I love having the opportunity to dabble in it. But I think doing it full time would be pretty difficult.”
