Rousey tweeted a photo Friday of her naked likeness on a Marc Jacobs T-shirt. The text on the shirt says ‘protect the skin you’re in’ and Rousey says all sales will go toward the NYU Skin Cancer Institute. Canadian model Jessica Stam is also appearing on shirts under the same line.
Add this to the list along with ESPN’s Body Issue, Maxim, late-night talk shows, ‘Fast & Furious 7’ and ‘The Expendables 3.’ Rousey, the UFC women’s bantamweight champion, is a bonafide star. It’s clear her ornery performance on The Ultimate Fighter this past season did nothing to slow her momentum.
Rousey, 26, defends her title against rival Miesha Tate on Saturday night at UFC 168. It’s one of the biggest events in UFC history, headlined by Chris Weidman vs. Anderson Silva II. And Rousey has gotten as much attention — as usual — as her male peers.
It’s doubtful that she’ll walk out to the Octagon in this new Marc Jacobs shirt. Rousey is sponsored by the UFC.
But for all her male fanboys, this is probably the closest you’re going to get to a naked Ronda Rousey resting on your chest.
