Ronda Rousey, the reigning women’s bantamweight champion in UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship), has clarified issues about her sexuality, in particular the musings about whether she is a lesbian. The undefeated champion said that her busy schedule has prevented her from pursuing romantic relationships and that she is not eager to land a man and succumb to his whims.
"I think it's funny when people think that because I'm a female athlete that I must be a lesbian, and I'm like, 'No, I love men so much that I beat the f--- out of girls for a living just to take them all out,’ ” Rousey recently told Rolling Stone, which put her on the cover of its latest issue.
The 28-year-old judoka also discussed at length why she prefers to tone down on accessorizing or makeup whenever she is in public. She said she prefers to wow the crowd at the opportune time. She likened her mentality to the 1999 teen movie, “She’s All That,” wherein the main character played by Rachael Leigh Cook undergoes a transformation from geek to campus head-turner.
“Rowdy” also hinted that a fairly well-known guy keeps texting her, but she is hesitant to give him a chance. She also recounted a recent encounter at gas station when there was a mix-up with credit cards with another guy who asked her out, but she chose to turn him down.
Citing a busy schedule as the main reason for the zero love life is actually backed up by her full schedule. The UFC queen bee recently wrapped up promotion for “Entourage, The Movie” in which he stars as the love interest of Turtle, played by Jerry Ferrara. She has also been promoting her biography, “My Fight/Your Fight.” Rousey is now embarking on a strict workout and training schedule as she prepares for her title defense against Bethe Correia on Aug 1. in Rio de Janeiro.
