Ronda Rousey Talks About Her ‘Phobia Of High-Def Camel Toes’

As if getting your face smashed in during a UFC match wasn’t enough to worry about, it sounds like Ronda Rousey is having to fight with her clothing in the Octagon, as well. She spent a bit of time with Rolling Stone as part of her My Fight / Your Fight book tour, and shared some rather personal anecdotes on the problems women encounter with their fightwear:

“At one point, I was perilously close to showing everyone my nipples, so the second I got [Liz Carmouche] off my back, my mind shifted to ‘Cover yourself up, girl!’ And when Liz saw that, she kicked me right in the chest. Which she was entirely right to do. I would have done it if I was her.”

And then there are the shorts the girls wear, just the way they ride up. “The first Miesha fight, she got her hooks in from behind, and I was like, ‘Oh, I can get out of here easy.’ But if I did, I would flash everyone, so I had to figure out a way to pull her feet out where my business was facing down, not facing the world.” She giggles. “And then I have a phobia about camel toe. I swear to God, every time after I win, even before I take my mouth guard out, I pull my shorts down, and it’s because I have a phobia of high-def camel toe, people zooming in on the internet and everything. It’s always, first thing, fix the camel toe!”

According to Rousey, she’s working with the UFC’s new uniform provider Reebok to develop “an anti-camel-toe design.” Not too shabby of an accomplishment to add to her Wikipedia page if they figure it out.
