UFC women’s bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey is quickly becoming one of the sport’s biggest stars, with appearances on all forms of media as well as mainstream coverage that few MMA fighters ever achieve. Her latest appearance is a photo-shoot for the Maxim September 2013 issue.
While Rousey did appear in the magazine’s top 100 issue, this particular issue will feature Rousey on the cover, as well as in the spotlight throughout the magazine.
For those incapable of waiting until September, here are a few photos to keep you busy:
Rousey is expected to defend her bantamweight crown against Miesha Tate in the co-main event of the UFC 168 PPV at the end of the year. The two competitors will also be featured on the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter which airs starting September.
