UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey doesn’t step back into the Octagon until she squares off with Miesha Tate at UFC 168 on Dec. 28 in Las Vegas.

Prior to that, Rousey is still remaining busy. In addition to being a coach opposite Tate and the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter: Team Rousey vs. Team Tate and having a role in the upcoming movie Expendables 3, Rousey has also added Maxim cover girl to her resume.

Rousey will grace the cover of Maxim’s September issue and will have several photos featured in the magazine.

Here is the Ronda Rousey Maxim cover shot. For more of her photo shoot, visit Maxim.com.

    Sorry Ronda, but those assholes at Maxim almost completely photoshopped your awesomeness away. This is like one of the worst pictures of you I’ve ever seen. And you have some nice pics! 🙁

    • Werdoomb

      RR has that girl next door look that people like. But Maxim wants hot girls. The picture looks so photo shopped.

      I’ll bet you hater Miesha “Big Nose” Tate is crying over this as well.

      • TheCerealKiller

        They brushed all of her muscle tone out. Stop trying to market her as a sex symbol!

        • Werdoomb

          RR is a sex symbol but in a very masculine way. She is definitely not Arianny. But some guys (not myself) get turned on by super athletic girls.

        • Mark McDowall

          I’d be willing to bet that Maxim had some help in making the decision to photo shop those pictures. The UFC is pushing Rousey as the face of the company pretty much. They WANT her to be a sex symbol…but also as someone young girls can look up to…and a bad ass in the cage.

          I wonder, should someone like a Carmouche or Zingano takes the belt away if the womens division will get the same attention as it does now? I would almost guarantee it wont…

    • Milosc


    • Maddawgmar

      I don’t think she cares that much. She got the payday.

  • Is it just me or are her legs unequal…

    • Miguel Rivera

      awkward lighting

    • justin e

      Its a horrible air brush and photo shop job to make her legs look thinner and longer. They do it to all models. None of thos pictures are unretouched. And it certainly isnt just the lighting.

  • Gary Fredericks

    Dang! Maxim ruined her!

  • Ryan P. Rangel

    I would agree that she has a natural glow about her that is not present here in this pic. Boo on the poor photography Maxim.

  • chris

    Damn she looks good in that pic…. I dont care about the make up and Air Brushing

  • julian moran

    They photoshopped the mole under her eye out.

    • William Skrainski

      naw….looks like they lightened it though.

  • William Skrainski

    Too many unimaginative photogs out there with sweet gigs……..This cat had a great chance to make a fighter look sexy…….He choose to do just another lame ass Bathing suit commercial. BTW, the photog may or may not have had anything to do with the editing….Depends if he’s in-house or not!

  • FighterAndALover

    Miesha Tate is 5x hotter, slimmer and more feminine looking, Rousey is becoming the new f***** cyborg, hr face doesnt look cute at all anymore compared to lets say a year ago.

  • TonyWestover

    Holy crap did they airbrush the hell out of her! I didn’t even recognize her. Terrible photo, real shame.

  • JT

    wheres the mole and abs and hottness?

  • Big Nose Tate

    I could have done a better job. I don’t think Ronda is hot at all. *HONK*

    I think she is disrespectful towards WMMA. She hasn’t paid her dues and she is the champ solely because the UFC wants to promote her. *HONK*

    I just wanted to point out that I beat Ronda in our fight and I just “got caught” the same way Anderson Silva “got caught.”

    • Denny Swain

      Anderson got “caught ” all thru out the fight and got pummeled on the ground.
      I agree totally on what you said about rousey.i keep seeing her ugly faces she makes while fighting, trying to mimic the diaz bros, even though they are losers.i actually like them more than her and i cant stand them. Hope tate destroys her. Tate is prettier than rousey and thats why rousey hates her.rousey said she has sex right before fight , so she goes out there with a sopping wet stinking snatch

  • Gregg

    Shame post production ruined her beautiful physique

  • bajafox

    I wonder if part of her training is keggles?

  • Keoni Castaneda

    BIG Rousey and Photography fan, but not so much of a fan of the photographer and crew that Maxim used for this shoot. Subject symmetry is horrible for this athlete. Check out the two other shots of Ronda. Poor lighting, a skimboard with no water/ocean in the shot, bad make up, hair styling by… probably nobody and the beach shot does this very fit athlete no justice. Congrats to Rousey for getting the opportunity though : )


  • jeff

    Doesnt even remotely look like the Rhonda Im used to seeing. If it didnt say it was her I would have never guessed. What a s*** job. Thanks Maxim.

  • Bill white

    Big Nose Tate needs a cover next to a bear or a pelican.

    • Eric Matterson

      She has a nice a**, tho

  • DamianCross

    We live in a generation where our top supermodels are beating the crap out of each other with fingerless gloves inside a cage.

    These are wonderful times, my brothers.

  • Pablo Vasquez Jr.

    who the hell is that Rondas sister?

  • brd

    Yea I’d do her…

  • brd

    I’d make babies with her

  • Informed One

    What’s funny is her little beauty mark under her eye is gone, and anybody who knows who she is would notice. Photoshopping is supposed to be done without it being obvious, otherwise why not just create digital cartoon models for these magazines? Poor job, doesn’t even look like her, horrible job. They are trying to cash in on the latest hot topic, which happens to be an ass kickin chick.

  • Chips

    It doesn’t even look like her.

  • micky

    search butthole babes

    whoops this isn’t google,
    I”ll get my coat…..
