Despite her love for the sport, Rousey clearly won't sell her soul in order to gain more recognition, and one of those avenues would be to pose in Playboy. That kind of distraction is not what the women's division needs, especially for its potential best fighter in Rousey. Not only is she a rising star in the world of MMA, but she is also quite the beauty of the women's division. The UFC has done a great job at promoting her first fight in the Octagon, so taking off her clothes to have more eyes look at her isn't necessary at all. In a sport dominated by male fighters and viewers, gaining respect and credibility may be difficult for women's UFC fighter Ronda Rousey. Granted, the vast majority of men will disagree with me, and I can't deny I wouldn't look at those photos myself should they become reality. If she were to pose for Playboy, instead of seeing a fighter, men will look at her as a sex symbol and will likely be thinking of her photos during her fights more than the fight itself.

Ronda Rousey Is Smart to Avoid Playboy Exposure
On top of that, Rousey should be trying to get more viewers as a result of her fighting skills and domination of the division—not the removal of her clothes. Rousey is best off letting her mouth and skills in the Octagon do the talking—and wisely enough, that is exactly what she plans on doing. Sure, she is the former Strikeforce champion and has a record, which she will look to improve at UFC against Liz Carmouche this Saturday in the first-ever female brawl for the company.
