See Ronda Rousey's Striking SELF Magazine Cover
By Molly Knight
UFC Champion Ronda Rousey is on a much-deserved winning streak.
In an interview conducted by comedian Chelsea Peretti, Rousey talks about her gutsy moves, killer confidence, and the biggest inspirations that leave her fighting and pushing for more.
Check out highlights from her cover feature below.
1. On what she's fighting for
"I want to leave a legacy behind … I would love to be considered a figure of social change. I want to see the standards that women hold themselves to change."
2. On beauty standards
"In terms of looks, I feel like we’re given an impossible standard to live up to. It should be more diverse and show that every single woman can attain an attractive body just by being as healthy as possible. I don’t think that’s an impossible goal.”
3. On her legacy
"I want my name to be mentioned along with Mike Tyson and Muhammad Ali, and I don't want the word woman to be in front of champion."
5. On her biggest fear
"I am afraid of failure. That's why I work harder than anyone else: I'm the most afraid to lose. But fear is also what motivates me."
