UFC women’s bantamweight champion and 2008 Olympic Bronze Medalist Ronda Rousey’s biography, “My Fight/Your Fight,” is set to hit the bookstore shelves on May 12, but you won’t be able to purchase it at Wal-Mart.
Wal-Mart recently announced that it would not carry Rousey’s book in-store because she’s too violent. You can purchase the UFC video game there as well as a plethora of UFC events on DVD, including ones featuring Rousey. SEE HERE
“I’m shocked, shocked to discover that censorship is going on in America!” said publisher Judith Regan of Regan Arts to Page Six.
Looking past the fact that you can buy riffles, ammunition, crossbows, and an assortment of items routinely used in random acts of violence at the retail store conglomerate, they sell B.J. Penn’s book, “Why I Fight.”
Penn was sentenced to one-year probation and ordered to pay $2,000 in restitution for hitting a Honolulu police officer during a melee outside of a Waikiki bar in 2005.
Penn was arrested in January for another altercation outside of a Waikiki bar. Licking his opponent’s blood off his fight gloves after defeating them became the Hawaiian’s trademark.
The superstore also sells video games rated “Mature.” Rousey has dominated her opponents since her MMA debut in 2011, but is she really more violent than “Call of Duty?”
