Ronda Rousey on ESPN Cover, Would Beat Up Kim Kardashian-Video
ESPN Body Issue Cover Girl Ronda Rousey: "I'd Beat the Crap out of Kim Kardashian'
MMA fighter Ronda Rousey had an interesting way of celebrating her feature in the 2012 ESPN Body Issue: by declaring that she'd "beat the crap out of Kim Kardashian". Check it out in the video below.
We're not disputing Ronda Rousey's claim: she's the current Strikeforce women's bantamweight champion. The fight duration would be determined only by how long Kim Kardashian took to hit the floor. Here's what Ronda Rousey said:
"You know what? I would beat the crap out of Kim Kardashian, actually. Any girl who is famous and idolized because she made a sex video with some guy and that’s all she’s known for, 'Oh, I got my fame for sucking dick,' I think it's pretty stupid, sorry, but it's true.
"And it's not shocking because everyone comes in [applauding], like, "Oh, Kim Kardashian!' Why is everyone slipping it under the carpet now? 'Oh yeah, she’s selling Skechers to 13-year-olds.' I don’t want some girl whose entire fame is based on a sex video to be selling Sketchers to my 13-year-old sister.
"That’s the horrible kind of role model that I really do not want to be around, why I’m doing things like this: Because girls like Kim Kardashian are being pushed in my sister’s face, and it’s just not healthy. She shouldn’t even have role models like this. And that’s why I’m doing stuff like ESPN Body, because someone needs to do it, for god sakes."
It's an odd rant for someone who is showing off a magazine cover on which she is posing nude, but the distinction is fairly clear: Kim Kardashian is basically an internet porn star, whose fame stems from a sextape. Ronda Rousey is an accomplished athlete, which is the reason that people would have any interest in seeing her naked. The two women arrived at fame from two radically different angles.
