Ronda Rousey Maxim Hot 100 No 29It doesn’t quite rank with the same influence as Business Insider’s “50 Women Who Are Changing the World,” but even in sports, sex sells, and UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey isn’t one to shy away from that aspect of promotion.

Just days after she landed on the Business Insider list of influential women and the cover of ESPN The Magazine’s 15th Anniversary issue, Rousey revealed that she made the Maxim Hot 100 list of the world’s sexiest women. She posted a provocative photo of herself from a Maxim photoshoot across her various social media accounts announcing her inclusion.

Of course, it’s not the first time that Rousey posed nude for a photo shoot.

Rousey was featured in ESPN The Magazine’s 2012 Body Issue, which features athletes in nude artistic poses. She even graced one of six special covers of the magazine.

The Maxim Hot 100 list is voted on by readers of the magazine. Rousey landed in the No. 29 position for the 2013 list.

Only a small portion of the list had been revealed on Tuesday. The Top 10 has yet to be revealed, but Rousey already finds herself amongst the likes of Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Beyonce, Demi Lovato, and Oliva Munn on the list.

Her inclusion on the list is one of the latest representations of how popular Rousey and women’s MMA have become, particularly in the short amount of time since they have been ushered into the UFC.

    Is it my age showing but who the f*** are Taylor swift, Demi lovato and Olivia Mann?

    • bajafox

      Olivia Munn is from Attack of the Show on G4

    • urdooomb

      no..it’s because you are an mma snotty nerd that know nothing about real life.

      • El Gvapo

        Very witty. And aren’t mma fans meant to be jocular meatheads rather than snotty nerds? And yeah, minor celebrity women are what real life’s all about eh? Simpleton.

        • Mike mckinney

          I get not knowing the other two, but Taylor swift is about as popular as it gets right now. She’s got tons of awards, and is probably in the top 3 selling artist in all of music. Walk down a magazine isle and her face will be on about half of the magazines.

          • Mike mckinney

            I meant too selling current artist. I know that should have been obviousl.

          • El Gvapo

            Right, I have looked up this Taylor Swift girl and I recognise her, just didn’t know her name. Flat chested one that looks like an elf right? I can’t say I’m familiar with her work but I’m sure I’ve heard some of it, not sure she’s that huge outside the US though. I apologise to all those that were outraged by my lack of knowledge.

          • El Gvapo

            I would rattle her bones though.

          • Mike mckinney

            Lol, not outraged. I was just recently having a conversation with a friend about how surprising her popularity is. Seems like a good enough girl. Just odd to see a country girl cross over so well.

        urdooomb is a troll on these threads. Pay him no mind.

    • Tmac4444

      Have you been living under a rock? How do you not know who Taylor Swift is?

      • earlsimmons

        what has she done that i should know who she is? She save millions of lives? She develop some new alternate free form of energy? She curing diseases? She find some major breakthrough in the physics world that could lead us to understanding the beginning of the universe? O WAIT no she hasnt so why would i care and know who she is. Answer me that broseph.

        • Mike mckinney

          I’m curious how old you really are? Lol Sadly, It’s been centuries since the type of people you described have really had any fame.
          Ill promise you you’ve seen Taylor swift unless you have actually been living under a rock. Taylor hasn’t done anything worthy of a Nobel prize, however you can’t stand in the doorway of a big box store without seeing her face on something. There probably isn’t more than 5 people in the US that get more run.

        I live under a bs trash shield that shields me from such trash and allows me to have actual taste in the arts.

  • toom

    She’s decent I wouldnt put her in the top 100

    • Maddawgmar

      Your telling me you wouldn’t do things to her that are illegal in some states? Ronda is absolutely beautiful. And the Maxim hot 100 doesn’t just mean beauty, it also is popularity and success. Hot women with hot careers.

      • earlsimmons

        Yes that is what im telling you. Some of us are not that desperate bro.

        • Scotty_O

          Haha I’d let her give me a BJ, but that’s about it, and that’s only cause she’s Rhonda Rousey.

          And I mean that respectfully of course.


      Rousey got a flat chest and a fat round face.

  • FightProfessor


    • kadyn KillClan

      she’s gross, photo shop does her wonders.

  • Scottilopez

    Ronda rousey ain’t no top 100 hot women that’s for damn sure. There’s probably close to a million women in The world that are better looking. Gina carano is way better

    • earlsimmons

      i concur. No1 beats gina. Not even close.

      • JOE SHINE

        Gina Carano got a huge frame also that will soon hold 200 lbs.


      Rousey is a cow red neck trailer candidate.


    Meisha tate got mentioned for Field and stream magazine but got beat out by a trout.


    Rousey will be 200lbs fat and divorced living in a trailer in 20 years


    Rousey needs to get that 2nd head below her eye cut out. That mole is terrible looking. Wait 20 years from now when Rousey fills that huge frame out and Rhonda will be 200lbs easy with a beer belly.


    Rousey got 2 fried eggs for breasts.


    Rousey will be toothless in 10 years with tattoos everywhere and 6 kids living in a trailer with Bubba.


    Rousey ain’t no beauty but a big mouth with a body frame of a mack truck dieted down to 135lbs but walks around at 175lbs and soon will be filled out at 200lbs plus once retirement comes up after Cyborg pops this mystical fake unbeatable bubble of Rousey’s.


    Rousey got a fat round face and a huge mole under her eye that got it’s own face.


    Rousey needs drilled daily by a Brock lesnar to just shut Rhonda the hell up.
