Oxygen Magazine Told Ronda Rousey That She Was Too Sexy For The Cover?

According to its website, Oxygen Magazine is a women’s fitness publication that helps females with exercise and nutrition tips so they can keep it tight, and we appreciate that. But obviously we appreciate women of all sizes, whether they’re fit and toned like Alessandra Ambrosio or a fatty fatty 2×4 can’t fit through the kitchen door like Kate Upton (jokes!). Oxygen also has a storied history of using toned fitness models in bikinis for its covers, so it’s safe to say that the publishers don’t have a problem with sex appeal.


I bet you’d like to see the photo that Ronda Rousey claims was deemed too sexy, wouldn’t you?

I don’t see much of a difference between that image and those in the hastily-thrown-together Oxygen covers that I provided in the banner image, but what the hell do I know? If I published a magazine, it would be called “BOOBS WEEKLY” because I understand journalism.

Meanwhile, in actual Rousey news, Cristiane Justino (AKA Cyborg Santos), despite being suspended after testing positive for steroids, is hellbent on making her return in December, and she wants to start with Rousey. It’s amusing because they’re in different weight classes and, well, Cyborg is in no place to be demanding anything.

“I just don’t understand where her sense of entitlement is coming from,” said Rousey, during an interview on MMA Uncensored Live recently.

“She hasn’t fought in like two years – and won a fight that’s really counted. If this happened to a man – think about this – if this was the men’s division, and it was someone who hadn’t recorded a win in two years, then had their title stripped from them because they were caught cheating, would you expect them to come back from their suspension and be like, ‘I want the biggest title fight out there, with all the considerations that I want. And if not given to me, it’s because they’re running from me.'” (Via Opposing Views)

As much as we love Rousey, this fight concerns me. Perhaps if she needs an opponent, she can face Gina Carano in a hug fight. That would be pleasant.
