UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey doesn't mind when other women say her body looks masculine. "Just because my body was developed for a purpose other than fucking millionaires, doesn't mean it's masculine. I think it's femininely badass as fuck, because there isn't a muscle in my body that isn't developed for a purpose."

In an interview for UFC's Embedded series, Rousey discusses, among other things, her body image in the media and her thoughts on being considered a role model for young women. 

"Being put in the position of being a role model, I don't think I'm infallible enough for that. I have this one term for the kind of woman that my mother raised me to not be, and that's a 'do-nothing bitch', or I call it a DNB a lot of the time. Like, the type of chick that just tries to be pretty and be taken care of by somebody else."
