It’s been a big week for Strikeforce 135lb champion Ronda Rousey. Not only has she made the cover issue of ESPN Magazine’s ‘The Body Issue’ with some rather revealing photographs, but she’s also hit the tabloid headlines after her comments about a certain reality-TV superstar.
Speaking on the red carpet at the ESPY’s earlier in the week Rousey was asked her thoughts on Kim Kardashian and she didn’t hold back as she ripped into the star’s questionable past.
“You know what, I would beat the crap out of Kim Kardashian actually,” Rousey replied. “Any girl who is famous or idolized because she made a sex video with some guy and that’s like all she’s known for…’oh I got my fame from sucking d*ck!’ Sorry, but it’s true.”
Unfortunately for Kardashian she wasn’t finished verbally beating her up just yet.
“I don’t want some girl whose entire fame is based on a sex video to be selling Skechers to my 13-year-old little sister. That’s a horrible kind of role model that I really do not want to be around.”
Needless to say these controversial comments caught the attention of the mainstream media and so Rousey was welcomed on to TMZ Live to further discuss her outspoken views on the subject.
Rousey appeared to go down a storm there, and had the host in stitches when she said, “this girl should be selling lube or something, why is she selling shoes?”
In the past week we’ve seen Chael Sonnen’s trash-talking antics help him to one million pay-per-view buys for his latest fight and there’s no doubt that Rousey has the potential to be the female equivalent of him with her sex appeal, outspoken views and of course not forgetting her ability to break people’s arms in the cage!
Kardashian knows how to promote herself and make a fast buck too, but somehow I think she’ll be keeping a low profile on this occasion because she’s no match for the Strikeforce star.
