“WTF? Ronda Rousey on the cover!”
Men’s Fitness magazine’s Australian edition decided to put a woman on its cover for the first time ever. It’s especially fitting considering her November fight against Holly Holm at UFC 193 will be in Melbourne. And if the magazine is going to break barriers, who better to grace the cover than Rousey?
Men’s Fitness magazine’s U.S. edition has previously featured Carmen Electra, Stacy Keibler and Maria Menounos on its covers, however Rousey may be the first female athlete on either side of the world.
To anyone questioning the decision or trying to bring down Rousey, welcome to 2015. As if being one of the top fighters in the world isn’t enough validation, try going up against her in the Octagon. You probably won’t fare better than Entourage’s Jerry Ferrara or this Ellen staffer.
Think you’re tough? Men’s Fitness thinks she is.
Is there a barrier not yet broken by Ronda Rousey?
