Could Ronda Rousey be bolder? The undefeated UFC women’s champion is not having any of his ex-boyfriend’s shenanigans as she did things in her own terms again.
Instead of her nude photos surfacing online without her consent, she opted to take it to ESPN and do it in her own terms.
While she was promoting her new book “My Fight/Your Fight,” the bantamweight champ shared some choices in life she took to attain success.
That includes the time when her ex-boyfriend took some naked photos of her and before her ex gets the leverage, she decided to take it one step ahead and did the ESPN The Magazine Body Issue that shocked the sports world.
( Via Bleacher Report ) “It’s more of a defensive thing.
Writing the book, the whole ‘My Fight/Your Fight’ thing has really forced me to be introspective and figure out why I do things the way I do.
It was because of that one ex, we called him ‘Snappers McCreepy,’ because we caught him taking naked pictures of me,” Rousey said.
“The first thing I did was take naked pictures for ESPN.
If it’s going to get out there, then I want it to get out there on my terms.
The same thing with playing the heel.
If people are going to dislike me it’s because I sought for it to be that way,” she added.
She also detailed when the incident happened and she also shared how comfortable she is with her body that such threats does not matter to her.
“It was right before my first title fight, actually.
It was like two weeks before and I was pumping out a lot of social media to try and get people to pay attention,” Rousey said.
“He went to work and I stayed behind and was using his computer.
I was downloading a picture off Facebook so I could put it on to Twitter.
You know how it shows the preview of recent downloads?” She continued, “I was downloading something and then I just saw a bunch of ass! ‘What is that?’ It looked like it was amateurly taken.
I had to look so I looked at it and it was all me.” “You know when you’re just comfortable naked around somebody? …
Like you’re just naked on the bed playing DragonVale on your phone? I brush my teeth naked.
That was all, every single thing, all naked.
I just thought he was on his phone texting people.
He asked to take pictures of me before and I was like, ‘No, of course not.’ He knew I didn’t [approve].
That’s why his name was Snappers McCreepy and if you read the book you can see how I reacted to said photos,” the UFC women’s champ added.
With that said, one can’t help but ask, is Ronda Rousey invulnerable? Fans will find out once she sets out to defend her title against Bethe Correia at UFC 190 on August 1.
