UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey was featured on the cover of Maxim magazine in the latest issue as her popularity continues to grow. Rousey is clearly one of the most popular athletes in the sport and her appeal is rapidly growing to a national level.
As a testament to her popularity, Rousey has received a role in The Expendables 3 and she has been working towards a role in Fast and Furious 7. There is no telling what could be in store for her next.
But for now, she’s living the life as a UFC champion and Maxim cover girl.

For Rousey’s next major appearance, she will be serving as one of two coaches on season 18 of The Ultimate Fighter opposite her heated rival Miesha Tate. The upcoming season of TUF will feature men and women in the 135-pound division. The men and women will mark the first time that a co-ed cast has lived together in The Ultimate Fighter house.
Rousey will defend her title against Tate at the UFC’s year-end show on December 28. UFC 168 will be headlined by the highly anticipated rematch between middleweight champion Chris Weidman and Anderson Silva.
