The UFC treat their superstars pretty damn well.

Women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey has continued tearing up mainstream media after she landed on the cover of Self magazine.

Rousey (12-0 MMA, 6-0 UFC) discussed a range of subjects in the women’s lifestyle mag, from positive body image, to her family and, of course, hot wings.

Rousey is a massive fan of hot wings and it is well known that she kicks back after fights by binging on them.

She revealed in the interview that the UFC went above and beyond the call of duty in order to supply their golden girl with hot wings after she knocked out Bethe Correia in 34 seconds at UFC 190. Rousey explained that a private chef was on hand to make her trademark dish, courtesy of UFC ownership.

“I eat about 50 hot wings. I love hot wings. After my last fight, one of the UFC owners flew in a private chef from Sao Paulo to Rio de Janeiro so that he could make me hot wings, because there are no hot wings in Rio! That’s how important they are to me.”

And that’s how important you are to the UFC, Ronda.
