Rousey, who is three weeks out from a title bout against Cat Zingano at UFC 184 in Los Angeles, still found time to talk about appearing in one of SI’s most anticipated annual issues.

“(Sports Illustrated) always seemed to use a lot more real women and as the years have gone on, I think that has increased and really affected how people perceive women and what they should look like,” she told USA Today’s For The Win.

“(SI) use all kinds of body types and use real women, not genetic freakish gazelles of people that look beautiful, but it’s a very small percentage of the population that looks like that.”

Rousey isn’t the only “real” woman to appear in this year’s edition.

Sports Illustrated also included plus-size model Ashley Graham in this year’s issue in an effort to celebrate more curvy women.
